S1-S3 has no watch faces like infograph compact modular, gradient, and california afaik. It is sad but S1-S3’s screen is a bit small to display infograph faces and their variations.

I know the Series 3 got two new watch faces. Numerals Mono and Numerals Duo. I assumed that applied to the Series 1/2 but I don’t have one to check.

Things seem to work OK on my S1 for a beta. Except, the battery life has dropped in half. Using airplane mode or just disabling bluetooth on the watch greatly increases battery life, but creates other problems.

I do like the taptic chime on the hour feature.

Does anyone with the beta have a list of what watchOS 6 features did and didn’t make it to the s1?

I made this quick list (of what did make it):

Two new watch faces
All watch faces can voice the current time
Better list view of apps
Smarter Siri
Can remove some native apps

New App Store app
Audiobooks app
Calculator app
Cycle app
Voice memos app

More complications
Many native app updates
Many new options in the settings app

Battery life cut in half (It’s a beta)
