Apple rolled out the watchOS 7.3 release candidate to developers today. In addition to bringing ECG and irregular heart rhythm notifications to more countries and guided walking workouts to Apple Fitness+, the update also debuts a new "Unity" watch face.
The new watch face comes in three different color combinations: Black and Grey, Red, Black and Green, and Red, Black, and Yellow. Since the colors are based on the Pan-African flag, each of the colors has its own meaning:
In addition to supporting a top and bottom complication, the shapes and colors of the watch face will slightly change as you move. While it is unclear what exactly causes the changes, the accelerometer and gyroscope built into the Apple Watch are most likely part of the equation.
