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?
- More licensed clock faces like Donald Duck an Superman.
- More digital clock face options.
- Curated Clock Face store (like Apple TV).
- Open Clock Face store (like iPhone).
- Quick app access complications (i.e. Messages, Phone).
- Complications for third-party apps.
- Ability to re-order clock faces.
- Monogram on more clock faces.
- Return of Photo (custom wallpaper) clock face.
Watch OS, despite it's similarities to iOS 8.2, is still at version 1.0. Apple is already hard at work on iOS 9 and Watch OS 2.0. Right now clock faces are in their infancy. There's no doubt Apple will keep working on the TimeKit framework and what it can do. If Apple asked what you wanted to see, what would you tell them?
