How to re-order clock faces on your Apple Watch

How to re-order clock faces on your Apple Watch

If you use certain clock faces frequently, it can be convenient to have them arranged next to each other for easy switching.

The Apple Watch currently doesn't provide a way to re-order clock faces, either on the Watch itself or via the Apple Watch for iPhone app. At least not directly. You can, however, add new versions of the faces, and they'll stay in the order you add them (from left to right). It's a little complicated, but it can also make switching to your most frequently used clock faces much more convenient.

How to add and delete clock faces to your Apple Watch

How to add and delete clock faces to your Apple Watch

You can customize your clock faces as much as you like, but what if you want them customized in more than one way?

You can set up the Modular clock face on your Apple Watch, for example, to have a simple, white palette and all the complications you need to stay on top of all your information at work. But you could also set it up with a bright palette and everything you need for when you go for a run. Customizing it from scratch each time would be a waste of time. Luckily, Apple lets you add multiple versions of a clock face and customize each one not only to your liking, but for all the different ways you like!

How to change the monogram on your Apple Watch

How to change the monogram on your Apple Watch

Thanks to the monogram complication, you can show off up to four characters right on the clock face of your Apple Watch.

The monogram complication is currently only available on the Color clock face, and it's meant to put your initials right on the front of your Apple Watch. But that doesn't mean you can only use your initials. The truth is, you can set the monogram complication to show any one to four (1-4) characters of your choosing. And while that doesn't include emoji, it does include the  Apple symbol!

How would you change clock faces on Apple Watch?

How would you change clock faces on Apple Watch?

Clock faces not only help you keep time but have complications that provide more information and access to more features.

The Apple Watch comes with several clock faces built in. There's Chronograph for the classic timepiece look; Color for minimal but bright analog look; Utility, which is somewhere in-between; Simple, which is just what the name implies; and Mickey Mouse, which features an animated version of the classic Disney character. There's also Modular for digital display and maximum information; X-Large, which showcases the time in large, colorful numbers; Motion, which shows an animated butterfly, jellyfish, or flower; Solar, which tracks the sun across the sky; and Astronomy, which presents an array of planets, moons, and the Sun.

So, what would you change about them?

How to keep time with your Apple Watch

How to keep time with your Apple Watch

The Apple Watch is first and foremost a highly accurate time piece

That's how Apple introduced the Apple Watch, but the company also stressed that it had to be more — that it had to be personal. To provide for both, Apple created a set of apps, including Clock, Alarm, Stopwatch, Timer, and World Clock. Each offers its own, unique functionality and customizations. Combined they make your Apple Watch far more efficient and convenient — once you've set them up just the way you want them. Here's how!

How to use your Apple Watch — and third-party apps — on an airplane

How to use your Apple Watch — and third-party apps — on an airplane

When you turn your iPhone into Airplane mode, it disconnects from your Watch. Here's how to fix it.

When I was flying last week, I discovered that when I put my iPhone into Airplane mode, it would — obviously — disconnect from Bluetooth and Wi-Fi signals, which meant also disabling its connection to the Apple Watch.

Airplane mode exists because the FAA requires that you block cell signals to prevent any signal interference with the plane's navigation systems, but Bluetooth has been legal on planes since late 2013 — and it just so happens to be the primary technology the Watch uses to connect to your iPhone. If you don't want to lose access to your Watch's third-party apps when it's time to go up into the sky, here's what you need to do.

NSFW: Microsoft doesn't suck, and you don't have to hate it

Microsoft's stumbles with Windows in recent years has created millions of new Mac users. But that doesn't mean you should turn your back on Microsoft.

About half the people I sell Macs to in my weekend job at an Apple retailer are new to the Mac platform: They're PC users looking to make the switch. And lots of them are fed up with Windows. But honestly, as much as I support Apple, I think some of my customers are turning their back on Microsoft at their peril — because Microsoft still does a lot of things right and continues to do a lot of things right.
