I love the functionality of Apple Watch but compared to Android wear and Samsung wearables, the faces on Apple Watch leave something to be desired. I love the rings faces but other than that, I think most of the watch faces are kinda lame when it comes to just having some cool designs to them. I like the look of the LTE Apple Watch but I have the non-LTE version on mine so that face isn't an option. I wish Apple watches came with some more options.

The Apple watch just lends itself to rectangular layouts. You would think they could license faces from Jaeger LeCoultre or Cartier too. JLC Reverso would be fun on the Apple Watch.

What I would like Apple to do is have an Apple Watch face store. Having a selection of Apple customizable faces of all different variations, but in a larger pool to select from. That would be a huge refresh for a long time request from other Apple Watch users.

I've wanted a Reverso face for my AW since I got my S0.. I'd pay Hermes band prices for one!

Why not? You can exchange the phone complication with another complication.

Apple doesn't include that face on non-LTE watches :(

Kinda like the Nike faces. I'd pay for those, also, come to think of it...

I wonder if the special watches faces are actually on the specialty watches or are they on the iPhone and just need to be turned on. If actually on the Watch why isn’t it erased when an Erase All is done?

I understand why Apple would like to limit Watch face options, but thinking back to the different types of watches I've had and come across over the years, I'd dearly love a way to play with the options on Apple Watch if Apple expects my commitment to be wearing it instead of all the other ones, all the time. Back then I'd just pick and choose as I pleased. I would be happy if it allowed me to change to different styles now.

I miss those original thin, red LED on black watches, then later the multi-function LCD ones popularized by Casio, Seiko, Citizen et al. And who hasn't had at least one Rolex Oyster clone?

What are Watch faces you'd like Apple (or a Watch Face Store) to offer?

If we're talking new custom watch faces, I agree. Open the watch OS to allow for more.

But if we're looking for replica faces of traditional watch companies, I would think there would be copyright issues (especially with Hermes).

you would think apple would make money from it.€1 each from the app store.

i want the chronograph one, but with the ability to remove the chronograph complication from the top right and replace it with something else.

and Numerals one with more than one complication.

and more funny ones like the toy story and mickey ones. apple should let companies make them as advertising.

Just my thoughts, but we know Apple is likely going to bring a new design for the Apple Watch come 2018 if we see an update. I also think if we see a hardware refresh, I believe Apple have something in store for more watch faces. I think they have had long enough to know and understand that this has been a request by many. I'm hoping watchOS 5 offers something special with Watch faces.
