    This beautiful model just happens to be my daughter. I know she is all grown up now but to me she will always be my baby girl! I am so proud of her. Not only does she model but she just earned her master's degree and is pursuing a doctorate!!

    I love how the Apple Watch doesn't try to stop you from using the same complication multiple times on the same face, so you can end up with this useless beauty/monstrosity:

    All these "custom dials" are fine, whatever, but I'm still hoping Apple will launch a face store with actual customization, not just wallpaper. Real dials made by designers, not just Gundam wallpaper.

    I've always said they could add an ambient light sensor somewhere around the screen, and with some simple effects, imitate the direction of ambient light as you move your wrist.

    If I can do this in Photoshop, Apple could do it on the watch.

    Moderate customisation so far but I like it. Has everything I need (for now). I'd like the option to add Friend Finder in place of the LON clock face...

    This is what I'm trying out right now:

    And this is my weather face:

    I wish I could add a barometric pressure complication with trend arrow, feels like temperature, and a link to RadarScope on this face. It would also be nice if we could customize the text above the hourly forecast as it's redundant. Also I guess the current conditions are on there twice because the forecast shows the NOW weather on the left, but I wish I could customize that forecast strip to instead show the forecast for today on the left with the high and lows, as well as the next four days. Then I could get rid of the top temperature complication which shows the high and low and replace it with something else. Having a weather face fulfills a fantasy of mine from when I was a boy and obsessed with watches that let you measure the temperature and other things because I was really into meteorology (and still am to a certain extent).

    Why does that Walkie icon look pixelated and low-quality?

    IDK, maybe they messed up the aliasing? It’s trickier to do on bright colors against dark backgrounds, especially when black is black on OLED and the Apple Watch PPI isn’t as good as the iPhone. It’s not as noticeable on the wrist but I wouldn’t be surprised to see them fix it up soon.

    I've always wanted a complication entitled "Medical Insurance Remaining."

    Dolphins jersey number font as the clock numbers. Attention to detail.

    I tried out the greyscale and quite like it ... colours can be pretty AND distracting

    Interestingly, if you screenshot this it posts as the original colours.

    I saw this face on Reddit - obviously it would be better with the dial activity info flipped, and I added the corner stuff, but yeah. Wouldn't it be great if Apple would let people give them money for new watch faces? lol S4-Steel_custom.png

    it should be ”banerai” or ”panery”, then it would be perfect!

    I finally got my nike+ series 4 on tuesday and i spent forever fiddling around with complications and designs for various watch faces. The watch faces I’ve tried are infograph, modular, infograph modular, photo, timelapse, astronomy, motion, vapor, water, siri, and solar.

    My conclusion is that most of these current watch faces are really not that great.

    Infograph is horrendous by default—it can look pretty good paired down, but I prefer digital time over analog anyways.

    Modular and its infograph variant are very bland and not particular customizable. Photo and timelapse both are pretty decent but aren’t particularly interactive—they have very little depth to them.

    Astronomy is cool; I just think neither Moon, Earth, or the Solar System display options have the kind of particular facially attractive quality in them that I look for; Motion is much the same.

    Vapor and Water are super cool—absolutely gorgeous; I just can’t read their analog readout efficiently enough. A shame; if they provided a digital readout for these faces, I’d be all over them.

    Siri has an attractive color scheme and digital readout, (I’ve noticed that the newer digital watch faces have a much nicer, bold styling to them when compared to the ‘legacy’ digital faces) but it’s a bit cluttered and claustrophobic, if that makes sense.

    That leads me to Solar, my current favorite face. While Solar is a bit too minimal, it has this very cool interactive and dynamic quality to it—it’s minimalist, stark nature is pretty effectively curtailed with cool animating and shifting style. My main problem with Solar is how difficult it is to hit the touch target for the two complications—even more so than the other watch faces with this complication layout. It’s frustrating.

    But yeah, my conclusion over the past day and a half of owning an Apple Watch is that the watch face and complication selection is frustratingly limited and inconsistent design and customization-wise. They really need to go through and rethink the whole gallery in watchOS 6.
