    Agree that the date may be unreadable on the watch face, but I will use glance to check the date rather than force touch. I think it's much easier to read the date from calendar than the watch face selection UI (the date at there is too small).

    Why? you want motion sickness-gate to happen again?

    The butterfly/flower watch screen has a pretty big date indicator :)

    Haha, of course I mean if the user prefer to use those classic watch faces and also only set the date present at that traditional area. Sorry I didn't make it clear in the last post. :D

    True but generally I need to know the date quickly when I am doing something, and usually that means my hand is occupied. I don't just think, "Hmm, what day is it, let me play with my Apple Watch." ;)

    Otherwise then I would have just taken out my iPhone and looked at the date. I guess since so many people don't wear watches now they don't have a need or realize the convenience. Maybe people don't need to fill out or sign forms anyhow because they don't get their cars serviced, or fill out legal forms, or sign anything. I don't know. Maybe now everyone can just remember the date except for me. :D

    Good idea, OP. I wonder if Apple may implement this on future versions of the Watch when the hardware is more capable.

    With 512MB RAM it should already do such things or just render the parallax effect on iPhone.

    To the OP, very nice idea. Hopefully it will be implemented in Watch OS.
