How to download new Apple Watch faces and change them?

With a 52% share of the smartwatch market in 2021, Apple is well ahead of its rivals and remains the undisputed leader. The future looks bright for the Apple brand, which announced the release of the brand new line of Apple Watches with the Apple Watch Ultra, which unveiled in autumn 2022. Did you know that you can change the look of your Apple Watch face quickly and easily? In this article, we'll take you step-by-step through the process.

What are the different faces on the Apple Watch and what are their functions?

From your Apple Watch or iPhone, you can change and personalise your watch face from a vast collection offered by Apple. Make sure you update your device so that you can take advantage of the latest features. As there are so many watch faces, they may not be available on all models or in all countries.

Watch faces give your watch an attractive look. For example, you can opt for a classic digital, chronograph or analogue dial, or a more original dial such as Mickey, Rolex, Hermès, Astronomy, fire and water, infographic, kaleidoscope, memoji, metal, modular, animated, photo, landscape, solar, Toy Story, and many other types.

Depending on which one you choose, each watch face will give you access to a host of widgets and functions, including:

  • Audio book

  • Alarms

  • Calendar

  • Calculator

  • Number of steps

  • Blood oxygen level

  • Heart rate tracker

  • Compass

  • Contacts

  • Mails

  • Messages

  • Maps

  • Music

  • Weather

  • Etc.
