    Hi everyone - I've had the watch since launch day. Sport 42mm. Have really enjoyed it. The one thing that really bothers me is that there is no display of the digital seconds in any watch face. Seem like an oversight. Am I the only one? Do you think in a future update Apple will add this?

    Agree and use the Modular face a lot. Would love to have seconds added to it.

    Could not agree more. I really wish they had used the seconds hand in the chronograph watch face for use all the time instead of just for stop watch.

    The bottom, small, dial on the chronograph face is the seconds indicator

    Yeah but I would like the big seconds hand that just sits at 12 o'clock to do something.

    The second hand in motion on the analog faces will likely use more power.

    Yeah, I thought about the battery use as well. However I use the utility watch face a lot. You would think it uses a lot of battery as well with the seconds arm. I'm just used to seconds in digital form coming from a Casio watch – the type I've worn my whole life.

    it does, it indicates the time passed when you touch the chronograph complication. Additionally a blue hand appears for the Lap time. Bit difficult for :apple: to cater for everyone's taste to be fair. The chronograph watch face is quite specific for timing usage; the other analog faces will probably suit more unless you need to be using the stopwatch function on a regular basis.

    Agreed. Not to mention there is really not a good digital clock. You either have to pick one with background images, motion, or the one where the clock is in the top right.

    I just want a digital face that would look like a traditional digital watch.

    Yeah that is true. I just like that I can change the background of the face on chronograph. I have the blue leather loop and a blue watch face that work really well together

    True :) I for one am hoping there will be much more customisation of watch faces in the future.
