    Not sure why Apple hasn't made a watchOS app for this, but any good app store apps?

    I came across HealthFace and it seems well regarded. Anything else I should check out before I buy it?

    Best I have found. It’s very customisable, in colour and style.

    And you can make a great summary page come up after tapping the complication.

    Just bought it and it looks good. I have the complication setup the way I want it but how do you configure the screen after tapping the complication? The screen says "This list can be configured on your iPhone" but I can't figure out how.

    Thanks!

    Just run the HealthFace app on your phone, go to the first tab “Record”

    Select the records you want to show, press and hold to reorder them. Then check how it looks in the third tab “Watch app”.

    Lastly, on the complication tab, set the Tap action to show all inputs.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, that worked. I had initially been confused because I thought that was for putting inputs in and I want view only. But this works the same and I’ll have to make sure I don’t accidentally edit/add anything. Shouldn’t be hard to do.

    Overall, the app does what it’s supposed to very well and the complications are so numerous, customizable, and look good. It’s nice and I recommend it.

    Do any of these show summaries of activities??

    Just distance and duration of the last workout is something I’d pay for.

    Does anyone have any insight into the introduction of Blood Glucose monitoring? I’ve heard a thing here or there but nothing solid. Thanks
