Complications on the Apple Watch
Apple calls the small information displays on the clock face that can be used to access the respective app “complications” – strange, but it is so. The easiest way to configure the clock face is in the watch app on the iPhone. Under My clock you tap on the desired dial and then select the desired complications for the respective position. If you want to install a pedometer like me, you can find the instructions here: Pedometer for the Apple Watch: This is how you can display the steps.
Own photo as the face of the Apple Watch
As shown, you can use your own photo as a background image – whether just a vacation picture or from your own arm, for the “transparent” effect. To do this, mark the photo with the heart in the Photos app on the iPhone. Now you can find it in the watch app’s watch face overview under the photos watch faces under Favorites. For a watch face you can synchronize an entire album here, or you can choose Own off, changes to the photos selection and selects the desired images with the desired section.
