A lot of people seem to love the modular face. I understand that you get heaps of info on it. But personally, I find it a tad ugly.

I love the motion faces, the simple face (with view fee details on it) and the chronograph in black

With my SGS, the solar face really looks sharp.
I really like the solar, especially at sunrise/sunset. I wish it had complications.

I like the chronograph the best, I guess it's because my father's watches are all chronograph. Currently though, I've been using the utility face in all white.

It seems Modular, Simple, and Utility are fairly popular. I guess it's logical though, Modular is very digital, while Utility and Simple are classic faces.

Photo album, released on watchOS 2.

Haha, would've put it on there if I could've added more responses.

Mickey Mouse. Had a watch with that face on it when I was younger, which I'm sure a lot of people did. Knew that was the face I was going to use since it was announced. I'll switch it up eventually. But until then!

Yeah, I don't think there's a single kid that when they saw a Mickey watch they didn't want it. Now that we're older, there's just something nostalgic about it.

I don't remember having a Mickey Mouse watch but I do remember having a Mickey Mouse alarm clock and I loved it. Mickey is a favourite along with the butterflies and flowers. I alternate between the 3. I've been using Mickey for the past few days.

when i saw the dancing mickey face i KNEW i'd be buying an apple watch!

so far it's my favorite face and the only one i've used. however i just bought a coral (aka pink) band and will be using the modular face with that band since mickey's pants clash with the coral band!

I rotate between three options. For work I am typically Color--like it on blue setting.

On travel days I use Modular with the center setting on calender.--great to have the calendar change from flight to hotel reservation

And of course, as an aging hippie who never had the original Mickey Mouse watch, I change over to Mickey pretty often . . .

I want as much information as possible on my watchface, so I use the Modular.

Kind of disappointed that you cant add that many complications to the other watchfaces
Im with you...Im actually hoping they allow us at some point to add even more complications...I can't stand glances.

I completely agree. There's a lot of unused space, because the complications are so large.
It might also be nice if you could just flick to the left or right from the watch face to see another page screen with even more complications or even all the app icons.

I always use the solar face w/ my space grey. It just seems like the most natural way to tell time, I really love it.

I like the "quick glance" ability of an analog face, and Utility is the best one IMO. Nice and clean, bold, and easy to read, please the ability to add complications.

I don't like Modular. It's just a personal preference, but it's too utilitarian to me and not pleasing to look at.

In the evenings when I'm relaxing, I will often switch to Solar or Astronomy. When my 6 year old decides it's time to play with Daddy's watch, I have to switch to Motion and put on the butterflies or flowers for her.
