The Infograph Watch Face is intended for users who want quick access to core applications and useful information visible at a glance to avoid opening an application on their phone.

You can have a total of eight complications with this face, one in each corner of the screen and four in the center. Before you get confused, the element that displays the date is not customizable.

On my watch, the top left corner shows the remaining charge; top right shows temperature; The bottom left gives me access to the exercise app, while the bottom right shows my activity stats.

In the middle I have quick access to Maps, Mindfulness (Apple’s application that helps you relax with breathing exercises) and Bucharest time (to track when my boss wakes up!). The fourth complication is plugged into the time wheel and reads “No Events Today”; This changes to reflect my calendar entries for the day.

The Infograph Modular is the option to consider if you prefer a more digital watch experience. It has a total of six complications, four serve as shortcuts, one in the middle provides more data and is most convenient to use for calendar or weather (as in the picture). And a fixed date complication that can be disabled but not replaced (shown above).

The Modular Watch Face served as the inspiration for Infograph Modular and is a less information-rich version of the Watch Face.

Setting up the My Infograph module provides quick access to a 15 minute timer, workouts, activities and an additional time zone. The medium complication is used to get more information about the local weather.

There’s also the Contour Watch Face, which displays the time with a focus on the hour that has just passed.

Portraits is a face available for any Apple Watch model that supports WatchOS 8. But the Series 7 arguably makes the best use of it due to the larger screen size. You can select up to 24 portrait images, and a new one will appear each time you lift your wrist. Images are cropped to focus and showcase the person (or pet).

You can set two complications and display the time in three different styles.
