    "New in Watch OS". The last 2 faces on the top row of the Face Gallery.

    Or scroll down to "Color"

    Same. I’m not seeing it. Series 4 Watch is updated to 5.1. Even re-booted phone. The faces just aren’t there on mine.

    Yep. I'm using a series 4 updated to watchOS 5.1 and iPhone updated to iOS 12.1. I guess I'll try another restart on both.

    FYI, the faces appeared once I updated my iPhone to 12.1. Not a Nike watch so I guess they are available for all.

    oh that makes sense - the watch app itself does not get updated until the OS is updated.

    No. I don’t have Nike and have the full color faces.

    Makes sense. People running beta 12.1 saw the faces in the Watch app but they didn’t work with WacthOS 5.

    I’m on series 4, 5.1 and I’m also missing the new watch faces. I thought I was the only one. Rebooted watch and iPhone and still no new faces! I wonder what happened!!

    I'm not seeing these either - the Vapor watchfaces are the last ones in the top row?

    Non Nike S4 Watch on 5.1 and iPhone XS is on 12.0.1...?
    :confused:

    I believe the watch has to be on 5.1 (not 5.0.1) and the phone has to be on 12.1. Unfortunately, with watchOS 5.1 update being temporarily pulled, that won't be possible for you until the update is made available again. (I was lucky to apply the 5.1 update when released yesterday without it bricking my watch, which is the reason Apple pulled the 5.1 update for the time being.)

    Wow. Consistently impressed with the amount of effort and meticulous design work that goes into the new watch faces.

    A reboot of my iPhone X had them appear in the face gallery for me.

    Just a soft reboot. Are you looking under the “face gallery” tab? They won’t show up on the main screen when you open the watch app.
