Wish it had more apps access but maybe that will come with updates. thought apple would have put the podcast app on it though.

I’ve now tried to make a lot of ajustmenrs because with all the complications on, it’s just a bit too much. Way too many coloured logos etc.

This version is probably the best use of it so far to me. Clean middle (almost) and use the corners

I just don't understand for a major launch how Apple can leave out so many complications for their brand new faces… Marketing and business wise, it makes no absolute sense at all. Other than arrogance…

Yep...my default face now. After trying different complications, I’ve settled on this...

it seems like the apps like the date and your calendar doesn't update on the watch face on it's own you have to go to a different watch face and back for it to update.

anybody else find this?

When mine comes in this is the face I plan to use simply cause of the different amount of complications I have have quick access to.

Yes. Today I noticed my date compilation on the Infograph still said yesterday, even though it showed the correct date when I clicked on it. I had to switch watch faces for it to properly display correctly.

No problems with calendar, though.

Yup, I have this problem with the Earth face, haven’t had it with the date or calendar.

But same thing. I have to switch to a different face and come back to get it to update.

glad not just me, kind of annoying and goes against the point of the watch face lol....but sounds like there is a bug with the watch face

I like that - like a slightly richer version of the simple face which is my usual go to.

I like the white face, but I can't get nice complications that match the face so it ends up looking like a wonky eyed panda

Yes mine does the same thing .. contacted Apple support they had me unpair and repair it worked for a day but now it’s doing it again. I have to do the same thing you did to get the correct date.

It’s too colourful. Just realised I think I like the simple one because the complications are mono. I’d like the option for all complications to adjust the colour. With the info graphic you have rainbow curves for temperature, orange for timers etc. Just too busy and too loud

I love this face. My only complaint is that the ticks are sub-minute. I believe they're 30-second. That makes it pretty confusing when trying to read the time.

All analog faces should have the same granularity of customisation as the simple face - I have mine with no ticks

I wanted to use it, but I prefer having messages as one of the choices so I just use utility.
If more choices like podcasts, audible, and messages and phone become available then I would probably use it
