Customize Apple Watch complications and the time for them to appear with this new app

Complicações personalizadas do Watchsmith

That the Apple Watch it is a gadget extremely customizable, there is no denying it – mainly its operating system, watchOS. As many watch users may know, you can add extra information to the watch face, such as time, date, email, calls and music from calls complications.

Nevertheless, watchOS would be even more customizable, but Apple has not yet fulfilled those requests. So it’s up to third parties to fulfill some of the users’ wishes – exactly what the developer David Smith did with the app Watchsmith.

In short, the app expands the already varied set of complications of watchOS, allowing you to create even more personalized versions of this feature. In addition, Watchsmith makes it possible to schedule the time when certain complications should be displayed.

All of this can be done from the iOS version of the app. In it, you can not only customize the complications (from various adjustments), but also define your exhibition schedule.

It is worth noting that one complication will only appear in place of another, throughout the day. For example, if you have configured the temperature complication to be displayed from 8 am to 9 am, the next icon should be configured from that time (if you want it to be in the same position) – if you can keep up, you can even configure one different complication every hour of the day.

The purpose of the app, however, is not to create new complications, but to customize the existing options. Despite this, the number of configurations possible with Watchsmith is virtually unlimited; the only downside to all of this is that, due to watchOS restrictions, you can only configure one complication in the same category.

So, although the “Infographic” display contains four spaces within the watch for minor complications and four spaces on the sides, you cannot create eight different configurations with Watchsmith; instead, you can create only one configuration for circular complications, one for corner complications, and so on.

To take advantage of all the features of the app, however, it is necessary to subscribe for R $ 8.50 per month or R $ 82.90 per year. Other than that, Watchsmith delivers on its promises and provides even more customization options for the Apple Watch.
