    I would like to see the ability to schedule Watch-faces and Complications.

    For example, the Watch-face I use during the week is more casual than the one I like to use on the weekend. Another example, there is no updated stock info on Saturday or Sunday in most cases....this complication has no use over the weekend. I find I change it out for weather, which I tend to track more on the weekends.

    It would be super slick if Friday at XX:xx my watch could automatically transition from weekday watch-face and complications to weekend watch-face and complications rather than having to set it myself.

    Do you think a developer could do this or is this something Apple would have to implement....or is this already possible?!

    Not possible now, but I love the idea. With OS3, it is much easier to switch to different faces so that at least helps. I have about 10 watch faces now that I use the most often and one swipe switches faces. But, your idea would be great and shouldn't be difficult if they felt like doing us a solid. Just like DND mode kicks on and off at set times, why not add what you are asking. It's a great idea.

    I have a sleep watch face and when I wake up and turn off the alarm and sleep tracking, I swipe left to get my workout face. I have two workout faces. One for weight lifting without the music app in the center because I have tv shows playing in my home gym. The second face is for outside workouts where the middle complication is the music app. Then several more for work or weekends or minimal.

    With me, an auto switch probably wouldn't work great, but I still like the idea.

    I have actually had this idea and sent feedback in via the apple website. I would write a feedback telling them that you would like to see this feature in a future version of WatchOS!

    Great idea. It's a watch so I think this is achievable. Good news is in the meantime swiping for it isn't that hard anymore.
