How to Add or Remove Watch Faces on Your Apple Watch

 

The new faces and complications arriving in watchOS 7 may make Apple Watch users envious and eager to try out the update, but there's still quite a few watch face designs available for use at the moment. Here's how to change the watch face on the Apple Watch.


Apple offers a wide array of watch faces for the Apple Watch, with all of them able to be configured in different ways with a variety of colors and varying layouts. For the vast majority of the faces, there's the ability to add elements from a considerable number of complications, allowing users to further personalize their Apple Watch display to what they need.


The inbound watchOS 7 adds a new Chronograph Pro watch face with a built-in tachymeter, while the Photos face adds filters, and the X-Large face introduces rich complications. It will also enable people to share their watch faces with others, or to download preset arrangements of complications via websites, social media, and even the App Store.


The large variety of faces and configurations, and the opportunity to switch between faces at will, means there is a need to refine what watch faces appear on the Apple Watch. For example, not everyone who owns an Apple Watch wants to have the option to use the Toy Story watch face, even by accident.


Here's how to manage your Apple Watch's watch face collection.

Removing a watch face on the Apple Watch requires a press, a swipe up, and a tap.


The face will be removed from the gallery immediately. If the current watch face is the one being removed, another from the roster will be selected and used instead.


In both cases of removal by Apple Watch or by iPhone, the removal only takes away that particular configuration of the watch face, and not all versions. For example, if the same watch face is being used with two varying sets of complications for different tasks, one could be removed without affecting the other.
