Take a Closer Look at the Apple Watch Series 4 Infograph Watch Face, Which Supports 8 Complications

The Apple Watch Series 4 introduces two new watch faces that are exclusive to the new wrist-worn device, Infograph and Infograph Modular. Both of these watch faces take advantage of the larger display on the Series 4 to offer up access to eight complications from Apple and third-party apps.

We took a closer look at the Infograph watch face and the multiple ways that it can be customized in our latest YouTube video, which is worth checking out for anyone who wants to get more out of the Infograph face or who is considering an Apple Watch Series 4 purchase.

With the standard Infograph face, there's an analog clock face with four customizable complications under the watch hands and another four available at the sides of the device.

The Infograph Modular face supports six complications -- one in the upper right, one next to the digital time readout, a larger complication with more info in the center, and three small complications at the bottom.

Built-in complication options available include Activity, Alarm, AQI, Battery, Breathe, Calendar, Date, Digital Time, Earth, Heart Rate, Moon, Monogram, Music, Reminders, Solar, Solar System, Stocks, Stopwatch, Sunrise/Sunset, Timer, UV Index, Walkie-Talkie, Weather, Weather Conditions, Wind, Workout, and World Clocks.

For the dial complications, you can choose to set your favorite contacts to one of the complications so you can contact a person with a tap on the watch face. You can also customize the color of the analog face on the Infograph face.

There are a number of third-party complications available as well, and these will vary based on which third-party apps you have installed on your iPhone and Apple Watch.

There are limitations on which of the available complications can be used in each spot, but most spaces have multiple options available. On the Modular face, for example, you can choose from Activity, Calendar, Heart Rate, Stocks, or Weather Conditions for the large middle spot, while a greater range of complications are available for the smaller spots.

The best way to customize the Infograph and Infograph Modular faces is through the Face Gallery section of the Apple Watch app on the iPhone, which gives easy access to all of the options. It can be done right on the Apple Watch as well, but it's simpler and quicker on the iPhone.

That they launched this without all Apple complications available on these faces is ridiculous.

great faces, but lack so much!

How is it possible that on the "modular" face, you cannot even select ALARM CLOCK as any of your complications?!?

But hey.... at least I can see the status of our SOLAR SYSTEM, this is critical for my day to day activities.

Also - I would like it if I could use Starbucks' complication in the 'Infograph' face. I find it useful.

Once people get used to this face, I think it's incredibly useful to have a lot of information on screen.

Actually, I think it’s more convoluted than anything. I think it’s not necessarily about getting used to it, I just don’t need all complication information displayed all the time. I prefer a cleaner look on the watch face personally, but I do like the customization aspect of it.

Infograph is dead to me until they add all the basic complications like Phone, Messages, etc. completely ridiculous that this was not available day one. Love my series 4 otherwise, but using my old face from series 3 until they fix this glaring gap.

I absolutely refuse to use an analog face as my main watch face on this digital device (because it just looks wrong).


Exactly this. If Apple would put the same effort into the digital faces that they do into the analogue faces, the watch would be many times better than it is.

I like how digital time is an option. I wish that vapor and some of the other cool full screen ones could be changed to digital time


I like digital time too since it has seconds, but unfortunately you can't have it on the digital face.
