Is there a maximum number of watch faces you can have on the watch please? I've Googled it, but can't find the answer. I've got a S5 if that makes a difference.

It's just that I'm thinking of having duplicate watch faces with different complications for different occasions. For example, I like the Infograph but have to change some of my complications when I listen to music (Spotify, Shazam, etc) because I always use all 8 spots. I was thinking of just having one dedicated to music so that I can just swipe to that face. Does anyone else do something similar?

I have 3 or 4 duplicates of the infograph face, with different complications, just as you state. Each face has a different color theme also.

Not sure on the maximum number though.

At least it’s not just me being too organised!

I do the same thing. Currently running 7 faces. One for weather, music stuff, navigation/location, communication, HomeKit, utilities/tools and health/workouts.

Just keep adding till it gives you an error, if it even does, like the dock... See what happens.

And there I thought this was mine own li'l quirk.

Daily driver face:

Tells me time locally, in Europe and China (useful for my business). iCatcher (for podcasts and sideloaded audio files) and my calendar are a tap away. I have an indication of the weather and precipitation possibilities, and a notion of how much daylight is left.

Face I switch to when on hikes:

AllTrails and, again, iCatcher (for podcasts and sideloaded audio files) are a tap away. Compass, air quality, precipitation forecast and UV index are all shown-- useful if I'm embarking on an expedition.

So useful. I loved my Series 0 (and it's still working perfectly) but this Series 5 is another game entirely.

This is mine. I tried taking a screen shot, but although the option is on and I've followed the instructions, I couldn't get it to work. Anyway, I always have the Calculator app and the date showing, no matter what face I have on my watch.
