Default [Q] change Interface/Launcher?

Seeing as the smartwatch 2 is running a skinned version of android is there any way of someone being able to make a new launcher? There's nothing wrong with it although it just seems like it could be so much more than just a list of icons lol
My Current Device: Gakaxy Note 2 - Omega Rom

Previous devices: Galaxy Nexus, HTC One X, Galaxy Note, HTC Sensation, Galaxy S2, Xperia Play, Xperia Arc, HTC Desire Z, Samsung Galaxy S,HTC Desire HD, Dell steak, HD2, HTC Hero

Yep. Motoactv runs android.

What about changing something - SW1 ROM is opened to the community - you can change whatever you want.

The Open Smartwatch project for the Smartwatch 1 was launched a bit before the release of the Smartwatch 2, so my best guess is that if there is ever going to be such a thing for the Smartwatch 2 it won't be launched for a long time, most probably not till the Smartwatch 3 Release date will be close.....

Yep, it'll probably go in that way. At least Sony releases all sources before going away from a device, unlike Motorola did with my previous Defy phone. >_>
BTW is there a way to change at least an icon of an application by modifying an installation package? Would allow some ppl to develop their own style.

Yes and not even hard, but a better idea would probably be making a xposed module to modify the required file (or perhaps using resxploit) so you won't have to resign the package resulting in being unable to update the app from the play store, atm I would recommend looking at the resxploit xposed module, even if it is outdated and unsupported....
