    The astronomy face is my favorite face on Apple Watch. It's so cool.
    In March, they updated the look of it. And it looks like in the latest maps tutorial video, they've updated the look again! What do you think?

    Iteration happening in front of your face.

    The one from September looks like they just copy/pasted an image from Google search. The last two look like tweaking of the interface elements.

    Yes, I think the latest one looks the best.

    LOL, it would actually be rather awesome if it updated the picture every day with a view of earth from space.

    Or if there isn't a set of satellites with that view, how about daily pictures of the sun.

    I don't like the latest face because it's blurry.

    This earth face along is literally millions of "design" in itself.

    Yeah and it would be awesome if the cloud positions were real too. Only thing is you can scroll forward in time, and there wouldn't be any real data for that.

    I was too excited when I tried it to notice, but do the clouds move slightly over time?

    It's obviously blurry. Pictures usually don't lie.

    Yes they do! You can also scroll the crown to speed up time.

    ----------

    Not blurry. It was a screen shot from the low res video apple posted in tutorials for maps. I'll update it with a sharper one when the higher res YouTube version comes out.

    I think they also removed the feature they showed in the September keynote where you could display the planets in a list view, with their names. Couldn't find it when playing with one in the store.

    It's still there! In the solar system view, you double tap on the screen to bring up the list of planet names. I tried it yesterday in the store.

    Not your fault. That's the only instance of a double tap in all of Watch OS that I'm aware of.
