The Apple Watch is more than just a device that tells time. Your personal health assistant tracks your fitness and helps you reach your health goals. It allows you to track your daily activity, heart rate, and even blood oxygen levels. It also helps you receive notifications for incoming calls, texts, and e-mails without pulling out your phone.
Customizing your Apple Watch face allows you to personalize the watch’s appearance. You can choose from a wide range of watch faces with various designs, colors, and features; you can also add informative widgets called ‘complications’ for a glance.
The extensive customizability options allow you to create unique and personal watch faces to match your personality and requirements.
Every year, Apple releases new watch faces for its watch users, and in 2022 they introduced new Lunar, Metropolitan, and Playtime faces with the watchOS 9 update. They also updated a few watch faces, including Astronomy and Portraits.
You can customize each of these faces to make them more unique and personalized. Here is how you can do that.
How you can customize your Apple Watch faces
Apple offers a wide range of watch faces, each with unique features and functions. You can explore all the available watch faces, personalize them, and add them to your collection in the Face Gallery in the Apple Watch app. You can also directly modify the watch faces on your watch if the iPhone isn’t available.
