Create a Watch Face

To create a watch face:

  1. Launch Watch Face Studio.
    You can create a new project or open an existing project.
  2. Design your watch face:
    a. Add text, image, and time components, and configure the complication type depending on the app and setting. For more information about complication types, see Add complications to a watch face.
    b. If desired, define conditional settings for the watch face components.
    For example, you can configure the clock to become visible dynamically.
  3. In the Canvas screen, you can see the preview illustration of your watch face, including its components and settings.
  4. Preview the watch face.
    You can preview the watch face in 2 ways:

  • Use the Run preview screen to preview how the watch screen behaves based on defined values.
