    To pass the time until April 24, I was just wondering which watch faces people planned to use (we've had a poll about almost every other conceivable thing! :p )?

    I know a great feature of the watch is the ability to swap the look on a whim, but I just wanted to get a feeling of which faces will be most popular.

    Hopefully we'll be allowed third party faces one day, but I know that could throw up a lot of copyright issues if suddenly there were thousands of Rolex faces available.

    Personally, if I get the watch, I'll be mainly using the Chronograph face, as I love a more classic look an analogue face brings. I'll probably add activity, stopwatch and weather as complications - the last one I'm especially looking forward to, as it's obviously not something a so-called 'dumbwatch' can do.

    I'd probably switch between modular and simple. Modular seems the most immediately useful, while simple just looks so clean.

    I wouldn't mind a "random" option, where I can choose if it changes hourly/daily/weekly ;)

    I hope we'll see more themed watch faces just like Mickey Mouse. I would love to see some comic book themed watch faces.

    I think I'll start off with utility but try out modular if I find that I want more complications on the face. I like that utility still has the analog face design but also has enough space for complications.

    I would use motion. As soon as I saw the jellyfish I knew I would. Other than that I would use solar.

    I honestly don't know. It's a weird feeling for me. I almost always know what I want right away. But with this watch face I guess its just something I personally will need to try in person to decide.

    I actually wrote a blog post today on this topic:
    Basically: I have no idea which watch face I'm going to end up using. I plan to try out these five in particular and see which ones I enjoy most. It may just come down to the one that provides me the most and best arrangement of complications.

    The Astronomy and Motion faces are the coolest, in my opinion. It's just a matter of whether I want cool or functional.

    Just glimpsing the "Micky" face causes me actually physical pain. ;)

    I have no idea how that ever made it into the shipping product. Just horrible.

    I'm in love with the utility. Able to add or take away from it. Not as busy as Chronograph, but still is functional and fashionable. Especially with the added complications.



    But I might play with the astronomy one just for fun! I think they changed the look of the globe. It might be just me, but I think I recall it being less realistic looking when that face was first revealed.

    The modular seems to be more practical for a smart watch. gives you time, weather, and you can also have it give you next appointments which for people on the go is a good thing.

    I really like the look of the Motion and the Astronomy, i also hop that more :apple: Watch faces are added over time or even the option to buy new ones. I'm really liking the whole customisable options from what I've seen there will be lots of them (over 2 million i think Tim Cook said).

    I didn't know about that one - are there any others not on Apple's website which are preinstalled on the watch?

    Can you add complications to motion or solar?

    I was wondering this as well. I really only plan on using the fitness one.

    Aren't Simple and Utility the same thing just with different amount of info chosen. I can't find it on the Apple website, but I remember seeing a gif of starting from the Simple face and adding things till eventually it's the Utility face.

    This was my favorite since I saw it. I'm not sure which one it is. It has the look of Color, but I think it's Utility with some changes. I haven't seen anything like it on the site. the stick marks are much smaller, and it uses sticks instead of numbers. I think faces are more customizable than we think.

    I also really like Chronograph.
