  2. Chnage watch face trought tasker or other program like it.

Second question, what affect does this installing and uninstalling have on previously installed smartwatch apps and settings? Resets the settings but leaves the apps I'm guessing?

When you unistall the app you lose only the Smart connect settings(profile , ecc) and the watchface.
The settings of the smartwach app remain unchanged.
