    I find myself endlessly faffing with the watch faces. I have about half a dozen on the go. It's driving me slightly mad. It's like I change them because I can.

    Do you have just one set-up that you stick with? Or do you mix it up – and if so, how often?

    Feel free to post pictures of your favourite set up!

    I don't. I found one that I really like and I've stuck to it.

    I'm using the new photos face now and switching between a few different folders. On Sunday's, I am now using random pictures of the Minnesota Vikings and there are some really nice ones. I have one that is filled with space pictures all with black backgrounds and I have one more that is just for playing. I'm working on creating one as a watch face with the upper right faded out so it blends with what we are forced to have.

    I want to like more, but I seem to use the Modular Face the most and if they come out with more complications (Fantastical, 2Do, MLB, ESPN) it may be the watch face I use 90% of the time. Other than that, I occasionally use Utility and Simple and pretty much never for any of the other ones.

    What I really want is the ability to create my own. In the Watch App on the Phone, you can layout your app icons, so why not have a section to layout your watch face? We could then do whatever we want and even copyright without Apple being sued. :) I just want to layout a watch face similar to Modular without it having to be so "smartwatch" looking - if that makes sense to anyone.

    I "try" to change my face "only" every few days or so. It does drive me slightly mad too. I sometimes want to have multiple faces at once. I think I would be contempt, if only the time-lapse/motion faces allowed complications.

    I'm using the Simple watch face but I constantly change the color of the second hand, maybe a little to much, depending on what I'm wearing and my mood.

    Rarely. I seem to have stuck with the modular, but sometimes use utility. Both of these look really nice with watch os2 and multi colours.

    It is kinda driving me crazy. I'm the type of person who wants to pick a face and keep it but now I keep switching between the modular and my photo album. I'm a huge hobby photographer and am having fun finding perfect pictures to set as watch faces (like these).

    It is really frustrating that the photo face has NO complications. :(

    I have a work face(modular) that I have complications on and I change it to more whimsical faces off work. I change it out maybe twice a day!

    I think many agree with you on the photo face... myself included. My gut tells me that Apple will open this up more in the near future - more watch faces, possible control over basic design of watch faces, watch faces for sale.

    I don't change my face (Modular FTW)... but I _do_ change the color nearly every day (To go with my Red, Blue, Black, Milanese bands and what I'm wearing).

    wow, I'm odd here then. I change it at least 4 times a day. Tinkering with colors on modular several more times a day.

    I wish I could schedule watch faces... that would be great.

    I change mine every so often. Maybe a couple times a week, though I mostly stick with one or two of my favorites.

    A few times a week. When traveling I go modular. At work I most often use Color. Never use solar, astronomy, and most of the photo options. Sometimes Mickie appears.

    Would PAY for a rectangular option (like the Hermes) and would pay more for an animated Nixie Tube!

    I tend to switch between Simple and Modular only.

    I used to only use modular, but now I switch back and forth between that and photo.

    The paradox of choice makes this really difficult.

    I ended up deleting all of my faces, except for three: the utility face, the modular face, and a red modular face that only shows time (for the movie theater.) I use the regular modular face in white most of the time.

    Modular in white is pretty clean.

    Some of the new OS2 colors are neat too. The subdued ones like walnut, stone, antique white, midnight blue, turquoise.

    Yeah, I was flipping around through some of those, and they're nice, but I keep coming back to white. I leave the center info area blank, so it's pretty clean that way.

    I have the SS on link bracelet or black sport band, and I like simple with this watch, as its style is a bit of a Braun and Ikepod hybrid. At one point, I was even running the whole watch in grayscale, which looks pretty awesome. I may go back to that, but I'm trying not to fuss with it too much.

    I like the sun dial, I use that the most, but also mix with blue modular, utility, Mickey, and lunar astronomy.

    I settled on using the modular face a few months back. I change the color on occasion, but ever since watchOS 2 I've been using multi color and digging it.

    Pretty much settled on Simple for a few months now, mainly because it's not defined/cramped by an outer circle so it makes the watch look bigger.

    I will try to look at Modular or similar with newer complications, or showing photos.

    But I wouldn't mind some sort of setting where say during work days between 8:30 to 5:30, Modular is on, then defaults to Simple when I'm off the clock.
