There is a frustrating flaw in the this face.. if I go for a run early in the morning and play music the card on the watchface takes up the bottom third of the screen, covering up the time and battery stats.

The only way to get around that is to stop playing music and close the card

Is designing watch faces hard? Is this something I could slap together in and after noon?

It's probably not too difficult but you will still have the same problem. The watch APIs have not been officially released so right now the size of the notification card cannot be changed along with other things.

If I make a watch face that has the time/date and battery stats on the top half then the music card wont hide ****..

Chrono Watch Face does this.
It doesn't matter if you have an Android, iOS, WP7, or any other OS based device. Just enjoy what you have and share with the rest of us.
