Google has launched Android Lollipop for its Android Wear devices, bringing a string of new features to compatible smartwatches.
The big draw is the slew of watch faces now available for tech wrist-warmers running the search giant's operating system.
These can be installed from Google’s app emporium or the dedicated Android Wear app and include Pac Man, Plants and Zombies and Despicable Me versions, as well as other, less garish options for those not into games or kids' movies.
There are also new notification blocking tools, making it easier to stop being hassled by certain apps, while the platform now has easy access screen modes for when a room is light or dark.
The update comes as Apple continues work on its WatchKit software development kit, releasing the latest version to developers building apps for next year’s Apple Watch.
