    One of the new changes in watch OS 4 is an addition of new icons to the control center. The ones that I use the most is Silent mode and Water mode. Now both of those are below the fold.

    I can't find a way to re-order them. There isn't one, is there? A bit of a bummer.

    I was looking for the exact same thing, couldn't find an option. I also use Silent most frequently and now it needs to be scrolled to.

    You click on the watch app, then dock, and select favorites and you can order them there.

    We're referring to control centre though, not the dock.

    Came here looking to post the same thing... the two Control Center items I use most often (silent mode and water lock) require a scroll down to see. Wish I could reorder to drop down things I rarely use, like theater and airplane. Doesn't look like you can though. :(

    Dangit, I just posted a thread about this because I couldn't find any on this topic. Why does Apple think im going to use this gimmick of a flashlight more than the water/screen lock?
    swipe up click was nice. swipe up, scroll down, click is not so convenient.

    Water lock basically disables the "touch screen" so that when in water, the water itself doesn't interact with the touch screen. Tapping on the screen can turn the screen on but won't allow you to interact with it, raising the wrist still works too. Once you exit Water Lock mode, it plays a high pitched sound from the speaker that ends up expelling whatever water was in the speaker enclosure, you can actually see/hear it work.

    Only Series 2 and Series 3 have this option.

    I use the water lock feature to change bands, that way you don’t open any apps or text random people when switching out bands.

    Strange, never experienced such behavior. Do you have wrist detection off?

    Totally agree.

    Oversight by Apple to not have the feature to arrange the order of icons , especially as they’ve added more.

    What I find is when I scroll up with my finger to activate silent mode , I accidentally touch another icon & switch it on. I know you can use the crown , but this is not the answer.

    You’d of thought this feature would’ve appeared in 4.1 , but alas. Can’t see it happening now until about 4.2 , & that’s only if Apple see it as a problem.
