    Not sure what this means, 3rd party apps can already use infographic faces. I have Carrot Weather and Grocery currently on the infographic face. It’s up to the app developer to support Watch complications.

    Also bummed there’s no home or hue complication for the infograph face. Why promote it so heavily and nuter its ability. Crazy.

    Agreed. I’m using a new app HomeRun in the meantime. Buggy but promising.

    Boo. That’s the only one I care about. I like seeing my elapsed stopwatch time as a complication.

    Stopwatch is on Infograph though just not on Infograph Modular.

    Yeah. It just doesn’t make sense why it would be on one and not the other. That’s why I started this thread. :p

    You know as excited as I am about the new faces - I’m a sucker for a boatload of glanceable information- I can’t help but wonder about the story behind watchOS 5.

    I suspect there was a big change of direction quite late in the design process.

    It’s seems bizarre to ship while missing half the Apple complications, and bizarre to add some of them back in a dot release.

    This cannot have been the plan.

    I think late in the game somebody did a mockup of the Infographic on the larger screen and they said that’s too good to wait for watchOS 6.

    Well, thats a big thuddy disappointment. I upgraded from my v2 to v4 for 2 reasons - the LTE 911 capability with fall detection, and that the infograph faces made room for additional complications so that I could get all of my wanted complications on one face and, thus not needing to switch between my exercise face (to get a workout complication) and a normal modular face that has everything I need minus a slot to launch workouts quickly (no going to favorites with an additional click isn't the solution - the favorites is where I store my quick access but not daily stuff).

    So finding that my Reminders complication isn't available on the Infograph Modular layout - thats 1/2 the need gone. For the cost of the thing... I think I'll be returning the series 4 watch and going right back to the series 2 - until Apple fixes this mess.

    The missing easy complications is a rather large set; <facepalm> Leave it to Apple to create a watch face with MORE spots for complications that is actually LESS USEFUL because of artificial limitations. Apple support was no use there - as they cannot say if the complications missing will be added in a future watchOS update. Oh well, time to return the series 4.

    There isn't any technical reason the simple graphical buttons are not available as a complication other than "didn't think we needed to" that I can come up with. Is this more of self centered "why would you want to" thinking?

    Most (not all) of the complications are back in WatchOS beta 5.1.2...ones added are: Earth, Find my Friends, Home, Mail, Maps, Messages, News, Phone, Remote, Solar System, Wind.....at lease with the Infograph Modular face. I will check Infogragh also.

    Nice chart BTW, could you send that to me and I will update the complications added in the latest beta.

    That’s good to hear. I just received my S4 stainless black and tried adding messages to infogragh modular and wasn’t seeing it.

    Any apps been updated for the complications yet? Only sports alerts and overcast seem to work for it.

    Have they added Sunrise/Sunset complication to Infograph Modular face?
