I've had my LG G Watch for about 2 weeks now. Have really enjoyed all the extended function from my phone. The only thing I wished I could do was customize/personalize the watch face.
Enter Watch Maker
This has several pre made watch faces to use, but the best part is the ability to make your own. After messing with the background or the different pre made modules, I found the "Expressions" to be the most full-filling. Being able to customize to the point of having current weather, forecasted weather, calendar events, battery levels (phone and/or watch), and numerous other information available to display on the watch face is great. Not only that, but can also select which components are on when screen is bright or dim. Super satisfied with spending 99 cents for this app! My watch is now, MY WATCH!

Don't think you can screenshot your watch but you can grab a screenshot from your phone and post here or take a photo of your watch

I have bought Facer, WatchMaker and this program...
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...atchface&hl=en

I have used the first two to easily load premade faces from this page...

http://facerepo.com/app/faces/?faceT...=newest&page=1

and used Watch Faces to make my own as well as load from their pre made gallery.

The coolest is to take pictures of your kids with this program..

You can easily take screenshots if you have the Android SDK installed on your computer and Java.

Install the SDK and the necessary API for Android Wear, open the "Tools" folder and double click on Monitor.bat

i was able to get a screenshot by "Sharing" my own watchface and emailing it to myself. i really like this watchface because i can have "Large Cards" on the screen and still see the time date and temp.
also have done tests. if set to not "Always On" and not "Tilt to Wake" (have to touch it to wake it) i get 2 days easy with this watch face.

Screenshot on android wear
Most have android wear app installed. Look in the 3 dots at right of app. Options for a screen shot is there, but watch face has to be active(lit up).
