    I use Glances a lot on my :apple:Watch.

    One thing that's annoying is when I previously had used a different Glance, and then swipe up to see my battery life.. or to pause my music... and I have to swipe over five or six times to get back to the beginning.

    What if instead of individual swipes to change Glances, you could swipe up to 'summon' the Glances and then roll the digital crown to 'spin' through the them, Rolodex style? They could even make the glances resemble the app switcher in iOS for consistency. Seems like it would be way faster and allow for a lot more Glances at once.

    I think in the future the way we view glances will have to change once people start to have a lot of apps.

    It would be nice if you could get Siri to show you glances. For example:
    "Hey Siri...show me Heart Rate."

    Or just have her tell you. Would be cool to use from your iPhone or iPad as well. Especially when they add more health features in the future.

    I'd be willing to bet this is in the works.

    Yeah I get the feeling that I'm going to start ballin' out of control with glances once I get my watch. Wonder how they'll figure that out.

    If you check it that much, the battery percentage should be a complication.

    Although I don't advocate doing this as it's a rather anal retentive thing to do.
