    Is there any way to disable the colored complications? I loved the possibility to match the watch face color with my clothing - but now I have this orange complication instead of the "old" b/w ones. Quite annoying!

    Yes, but as far as i can see changing the hand color doesnt effect the complication color. :(

    Are you on the latest beta? I've seen some photos of colored complications.

    Yes, i am. The sunrise / sunset complication is orange - but it seems that the color for the complication is not customizable. Changing the hand color has no effect on the complication color. :( I dont like to have a red hand, but an orange complication, that sucks! Hopefully its just a bug!

    The photo I saw had colored rings for Activity, blue for the temperature, red for the next meeting time and white for everything else. I assume this will calm down in the coming months. That's a lot of color.

    Color me confused. Are you talking about a new feature in the beta? The rest of us don't have it.

    Yes, i talk about the colored complications which were introduced with beta 4.
    I dont like them, but it seems that there is no way to restore the old b/w ones.

    I am not running any beta so I do not have the problem. Glad I am not!

    Indeed, the latest Beta 4 introduces colour into complications which I personally do not like.

    Which face(s) would this be? For those of us who don't have the beta, only the Color face has colored complications.

    I just wished anyone complaining about this or that function of the watch would first state the beta status of their watch. Maybe there should be a separate sticked thread for beta problems.

    And members who start such a thread should refrain from assuming we know what they're talking about when the rest of us don't have the beta.

    I think the MR staff should add a Watch OS 2 section in the same area of the forum as the iOS9. There really should be a separate section just for the new OS

    Here's a screenshot I found of what OP is talking about. I actually like it better like this.

    Sorry guys! Did not expected the missing beta 2 hint to be a problem. I came from the point that you guys are well informed about the beta-changes.

    I dont have a problem with the colorful activity complication - but with the others (e.g. sunset complication):

    Maybe i am the only one who thinks this is a disgusting look, but i loved the clean and harmonious look of the old b/w complications in combination with the colorized hands. So i am just curious if i missed a setting.

    You can always put the watch in grey scale mode if you want a uniform look :p

    It does look cheesy with two different colors that don't go well together. Perhaps Apple will smarten up and make this a customizable option in the final build.

    Putting in grey scale mode available in iOS 1.0.1 or only beta?

    Noticed when attempting a screenshot of the grayscale screen it's still saved in color. :eek:
