This way, you can always check the wind conditions at your sailing or paragliding spots, you can check the weather and snow conditions at your favorite skiing area, or even check your security cameras at home, directly on your Android Wear, as you are checking the time. Perfect for security surveillance - have always a look at your most important things!

Watch With a View comes equipped with 9 pre-installed webcams, traffic news in New York and San Francisco, but also live satellite images showing the Earth cloud cover from 35.000km, or NASA Blue Marble including night view.

You can use any image url with Watch With a View, not only webcams. MJPEG cameras look especially spectacular, when you are looking at a live video on your watch (i.e. the waves of the beach of Waikiki as shown in the movie).

• set the the position of the time (middle, top) - for 12/24 watch mode.
• change the update interval: from every time you look at the watch, to once an hour; or "never" in case you use a static image
• fit the webcams "center", "left", "right", or "animated" (for static image webcams)
• change font style and font color
• save all your favorite webcams in your "Favorites" list, and switch between them right from the watch menu

• webcams are not updated when the watch is on the docking station to limit bandwidth and battery usage.

by W####:

Does not always work

by B####:

Screen captures don't show it, but you are able to remove all text on the watch face in the paid version. Looks good!

by Q####:

I need help with this app.cannot download my local webcam

by G####:

Love the face, especially the cloud one. I have a camera at home though that is a dlink 5222l I connect to through ddns. I would like to use it but I can't get it to show up, the url pasted in from opening the image never refreshes and I don't know if it's because the camera is password protected or what. Any ideas?

by S####:

I cant see how to get into it. The face when i down loaded it looks lovely. I Cant slate it as i cant find it. Now found it and love it

by L####:

Very bad pésimo no lo recomiendo lo siento

by T####:

Combine this with xeoma and you have a perfect combination!!

by I####:

Developer at least responds. To the developer, you wanted examples. Apps are examples not spam. I was trying to give you concrete examples of UI and interfaces that work. The fact is your watchface is missing very basic stuff , weather, battery power for phone and watch, basic stuff. This app is very expensive for what it is and it's competition. almost two dollars for what should have been free or 99 cents at most.

by U####:

I'll update my review score if these are addressed but for now there are not enough features. watermark should be removed since I paid. There should be an option to not show seconds. There should be an option for watch and phone battery level. There was only one can by default, there should be more. Good idea but not ready for prime time in my opinion because its too limited.

by V####:

Great idea, paid my money. Bug fixes are regular.

by D####:

Love this app although I would give it 5* if I had the option to remove the "" and the "moments ago" text! Just so it had the time and the date at the top. Can you make this happen, keep it on the trial but for us that have paid can you add this feature please!

by W####:

I love the idea of this, just wish there was a way to put the time at the top so the notifications don't cover it it. -Thanks for the super fast update, works great

by Z####:

Brilliant app - does exactly what I want - but have sent a request by email to help out those of us who have OLED displays.

by A####:

Works great!
