Google has sent out a small but useful update for its Android Wear platform that is found on myriad smartwatches on the platform. The company says that the update will be rolling out to every Android Wear device in the coming weeks and the meat of the update will be the inclusion of interactive watch faces. This will bring more ways to use the device when it is just in its watch face mode.

At the moment, there are only three watch faces that offer interactivity, Bits, Together, and Under Armour.

Bits lets puts information like missed calls, emails, weather, battery status, and other information alongside the time on the screen. Together is an interactive sharing watch face that lets you share data and photos with someone else. Under Armour's is used to keep track of various fitness features that Android Wear devices boast.
