Apple Announces Siri, Kaleidoscope, and Disney Watch Faces in watchOS 4
Jun 5, 2017 10:31 am PDT by Tim Hardwick
Apple announced three new types of Apple Watch faces as part of WatchOS 4 during its keynote at the Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday in San Jose, California.


A new Siri watch face powered by machine learning and "Siri intelligence" comes with a top left complication that allows the wearer to receive dynamically updating notifications from a range of Apple apps and services, like Apple Home, Calendar, and Weather. The watch face offers "proactive assistance" depending on your schedule and the time of day, according to Apple, and users can rotate the Crown for more details.

The second new watch face in WatchOS 4 is a "trippy" animating kaleidoscopic face that plays on photos in a user's photo album to generate visuals when the user rotates the crown.

The last new watch face is actually a set of three Disney inspired ones to supplement the existing characters. Woody, Jessy, and Buzz from Toy Story are included, and all have animating vignettes when interacted with.

Still waiting for a rectangular analog face similar to the one used for the Hermes edition. Really - the watch is rectangular, give me rectangular face options.


This Seems to be a request by many. And although I agree with you, I'm not sure if Apple is going to be traveling this route anytime soon with rectangular face options. I think the bigger picture is, is they need to allow third-party access to developers to help design more watch faces for the Apple Watch that would be more accustomed to what somebody wants.

Love the additions to watchOS. Really like the idea of Siri watch face. Though I do wish they added even more watch faces.

That's it?!? Toy Story characters. Wow, way to stay current there Apple! (Minions would have been better.) But I'm 60 years old and would have liked some more grown up options. But I would have used Minions now and then ;)

As a daily Apple Watch user I'm pretty chuffed about this update. I'm not expecting much more from the Apple Watch OS now, at least in its current form.
