    I've been thinking about it a lot..... And in time, I'm sure someone will figure out a way to do it. Since the watch OS needs to come through the iPhone to install, it's possible that if the iPhone is jailbroken, one may be able to manipulate the watch OS before it gets pushed to the phone. Oddly enough, a jailbroken phone that's running a theme, sends notifications to the watch with the icons themed also. This leads me to believe that there's a way in, or at least a way to mod.... We just need to figure it out. I can't wait. [​IMG] This is a themed icon showing up on my watch during a notification. I thought it was pretty cool.

    I don't get themed icons showing on my watch. I've tried it with a theme using the Bundles method and another using IconBundles. Neither worked. I don't really care whether the icons are themed, but I thought I'd report my findings.

    (software versions: phone - 9.0.2; watch - 2.1)

    Weird, although they don't show themed for the apps that are on board the watch, like IG and Twitter, just the pushed notifications from apps you have set to 'mirror device'. Tbh, I've only been running Allegro Theme so I'm not sure how it's working for me. Just noticed it one day and tripped out.
