It looks like there will be new watchfaces for Nike and Hermes. Is there a new watchos in the making?
There aren't any new faces for Hermes (nor Nike so far as I am aware) either. There are new colours reflecting the new bands, so the standard S5 has Surf Blue, Cactus and Grapefruit available now. Hermes has Blanc and Blanc/Noir (I assume they are named in French but I haven't checked), and I expect Nike has Midnight Turquoise and Lime Blast. What new hardware did you think was just released that Apple wants you to buy so you could have new faces? If you have a standard S5 then you have the newest available.Well we haven't had any new faces for the standard edition of the S5.
No, you didn’t; fair comment. I think I (incorrectly) thought you were suggesting Apple is releasing goodies that are only available to buyers of new hardware, so I apologise for that.
Apple knows that watch faces are why people may buy the new model. They typically enable them on the new models only.
Are you for real? Every post is just BS. Apple used California and Meridian to promote the S5, and the S4 got both.You’re correct. When Apple hosts their keynotes, if you look closely, they spend at least half of the watch keynote portion on the watch face Upgrades/improvements, they do that if they can attract a demographic that’s interested in upgrading, specifically for those watch faces, that gives them more of incentive to do so.
Personally, I think the watch faces are unique enough where Apple really has expanded on them considerably since the Series 3 Apple Watch, they’ve become more dynamic, but in the same respect, more customizable with the ‘complications’.
S5 got California, Meridian, Modular Compact, Gradient and some Numerals ones. S4 got them also though, as it has the required hardware to run them.No problem. I just seem to remember that when the S4 came out, we got the Infograph faces. But can't remember any new faces for the standard edition of the S5. I may be wrong though.
