    One of my favorite features of the Apple Watch is being able to see al kinds of useful data at a glance, just by looking at the watch face. I'm always looking for new and interesting watch face complications and wanted to know if anyone had some interesting 3rd party ones that they use all the time and find useful.

    Things, to show my remaining todos for the day.

    Lose It, to display my remaining calories for the day

    Carrot Weather, to show the temperature and a picture of the conditions.

    I had the lose it app but when I when add a complication it's just blank and shows nothing. Also the app seems to take forever to load. I have lifesum now and it's the same thing. So the complications not work on the watch?

    My favorite is Stepcard. You can have it show steps taken, percentage of your goal, or a combination of the two.

    It does, but you can't display the steps directly on the face using the health and/or activity app. StepCard reads the step data from the watch/phone health app and displays it right on the face.

    • Fantastical Calendar
    • Carrot Weather
    • Streaks (habit tracking)
    • Things
    • Lose It (Which I should be using at the moment, but I'm not)
    Fantastical Calendar and Carrot Weather are pretty much always complications I have set, and both of these apps offer some great options for what to display on small and large complications. Things is not my favorite task manager (that title currently goes to Swipes), but it used to be my favorite. The fact that it offers a complication made me take another look. It's a solid task manager, and the complication is great if you are good about keeping your list of items to do Today reasonably short.

    I usually have the Activity Rings set as a complication, and also frequently the timer, but those aren't third party ;)

    I haven't tried Lifesum, but the Lose-it complication and app work fine on my watch. If you haven't tried in a long time, give it a try using the latest Watch OS and the latest Lose-It app. Restart your watch and your iPhone if you're still having problems.

    I redid loaded it and nothing. I restarted my watch and phone and on "glances" or just hitting the app from the watch it just spins around then goes back to the watch face

    Thanks for all the recommendations! I'm trying out Carrot Weather now based on all of your recommendations, and so far I like it! I'm also trying Forecast Bar. They are both good weather complications, but I'll have to settle one one soon...
