- watchOS 8 is getting not one, but two new watch faces.
- A new World Timer watch face was revealed during a WWDC21 session.
During the WWDC21 keynote, Apple highlighted a new portrait watch face that users could choose with the new watchOS 8 update that is set to release to all users this fall. However, that does not appear to be the only new watch face coming to the Apple Watch.
As reported by 9to5Mac, a new watch face called "World Timer" has been revealed in one of the developer sessions at WWDC21.

The new watch face features a world map with time zones of cities around the world.
The report makes a point that Apple held off on announcing a number of new watch faces until the Apple Watch event in the fall last year, so it could be planning to do the same with the Apple Watch Series 7 this year as well.
If you want to use the World Timer watch face to track the time of cities around the world, you'll be able to do so when watchOS 8 releases to the public this fall. Check out our list of the Best Stands to Charge Both iPhone and Apple Watch 2021 to ensure your watch has enough juice to track all of those time zones.
