Upgrade your Apple smart wearable with classy and stylish watch faces. Apple wearables don’t support third-party watch faces, but the brand has provided an extensive selection of watch faces that you can choose for your Smartwatch. There is such variety in the design and complications that you will have plenty of options to choose from the gallery. This guide will list the best Apple Watch Faces for your Smartwatch. We will also guide you on changing the watch face and customizing it according to your preference

Changing Faces on Apple Watch

The easiest way to change the watch face is to simply swipe left or right to select from your list of favorites.

The other option is to force touch the screen to open the Apple Watch faces library. All the watch faces may not be displayed. If you are looking for more options, then you need to click on the + symbol on the far right to import new watch faces from the catalog.

The second option is to visit Apple watch companion app and manually select a watch face from the full face gallery.

Apple Watch complications

In Apple Smartwatches, we call the tiny customizable widgets as Complications. These widgets appear on the screen and allow you to customize your Apple Smartwatch.

Complications let you access the information you need right on the screen without having to swipe to the function to get it. If you want to change the complications, tap the “Customize” prompt that you get while changing watch faces or switching between watch faces.

Using this option, you can change the design elements, colors, and complications of a watch face and save it in your on-watch library.
