    A few weeks ago I posted a complaint that I was not able to see the charge status of the watch while charging without tilting it into night stand mode or having a battery complication on the watch face.
    (charge status seems a pretty logical thing to show while charging).

    In 4.3 the night stand mode is always available (without tilting the watch) and you can see the charge status circle just by tapping the watch.

    Better yet you can tap the charge circle itself to see the battery charge percentage :)
    (This might have been possible before on the night stand mode, but its new to me).

    my stand was already in nightstand mode, so I have been using this feature since the beginning; to me and I am sure this is strange, nightstand mode is one of the best features of the watch and it is the best alarm clock I have ever had (I generally hate alarms; but I appreciate that I can pretty much never mess up setting the alarm time on the watch).

    I would love this as a usable face - large time, small date, with a small complication.
