I asked the dev for the watchface I just mentioned, to add weather. And they replied in less than 24 hours, that they are working on it. And they've even added mention of it to their release notes on Google Play.Check out this Android Wear WatchFaces app. You can make any type you want quick and easy. It's the most flexible and easy one I've found yet. It does not include weather, but has anything else you'd want. I was using Pujie Black, but I feel it uses much more battery power.

I only find one brightness control but it lets you dim the screen below the level offered in the stock settings. Give it a try. Lower it all the way down and then go to the stock settings and select "1". You'll see how much dimmer it was.
I did another test. I didn't run the pixel fixer but left the always on mode off for three days. I switched to the white face and don't see the ghosting so it obviously faded on its own. I've switched to only using always on mode only when I really need it. I'm hoping that LG updates the watch to make the screen easier to turn on when moving your wrist. It would be nice if there was a sensitivity setting for it. I would also like to increase the delay before it goes dim.you have to distinguish between burn-in and ghosting:
burn-in is permanent and can't be fixed (the stuck pixel fixer app actually wears down the non-burned-in pixels as well - which in the end still looks better as the screen once more gets more uniforme)
ghosting on the other hand isn't permanent, but the pixels having been in use to display a certain image for an extended periode need to recover
some ghosting is normal and you will always get that, but it can also be the first signs of burn-in
Nice. I bought that one to try it out. Although the face is not what I'm looking for it's nice to see what is possible. I wonder if we'll get some of these capabilites in the the lollipop version of wear.
I just got the update. With the brightness set to 1, the dim mode on that face looks brighter than the non-dimmed mode.To those of you with 5.0.1, have you seen the new "Red" stock face? There is significantly more white, and all the numbers and dials are present on the dimmed face. Can anybody confirm that this is an increased risk for burn in? I'll post a picture later if no one has seen it yet.
If you don't mind me asking, what opacity do you use for dim mode?
A correction to the corection ... P-OLED from GWR it's coming from Plastic-OLED which defines the flexible substrate on which the OLED it's built.
While your post seems very useful, this is a very disturbing comment. Reminiscent of a certain fruit company telling its customers they were holding their phone incorrectly. If there's issues with the device, LG should not have released it. If you're not supposed to turn the brightness up all the way, the underlying settings should be different. More broadly, the device shouldn't let the user do something through normal means that harms the device.
Your comment isn't even a solution or helpful at all. He's looking for someone to confirm the burn in issue. Honestly I have a hard time seeing it on the picture he submitted, but as someone who's interested in buying the watch I would like to know if this is a problem as well.This is excellent example of why you should not use light colored watch faces. Burns battery and looks terrible. Remember on OLED, black means "off". A mostly black watchface burns almost no juice.
That softball face looks ridiculous anyway. Stick with Aviator.
Last point. Always on is just dumb. Why do you want your watch face on when you aren't looking at it, to impress chicks?
