Playing around with abusing the rotation mode designed for showing QR codes to get a sense of what an ‘always-on’ Apple Watch would be like. Unsurprisingly, it’s awesome. Really hope this eventually gets added.

I’m trying out the XR, but was curious how much I’ll actually miss the telephoto lens. I realized I can check using a smart album in Photos on the Mac. For me the telephoto was used in only 16% of my iPhone X photos.

If you turn on ‘merge steps with Apple Watch’ in settings on your iPhone it will smart merge them. It shouldn’t ever double count.

I always sleep with my watch in “Theatre Mode” (the two faces in the control panel after you swipe up). In that mode the screen only lights up if you tap it.

It goes underneath both until it can fit cleanly between them, then goes above the hour hand when it gets too close it.

I have but find that looks visually really odd. You won’t actually notice it moving too much in real time. For the most part it is just legible and looks normal.

Best part about making custom faces…being able to fix the things that have driven you crazy forever. A date that is always readable!

I’ve been very pleased with how quick watchOS 5 adoption has been. I’m seeing roughly 60% overall. If I exclude the Series 0 watches that can never get it, then it is already up to 72%.

The root issue has been resolved, however, there are a few feed items that are still affected by the database issue. So while the service overall is up I'm still working through fixing the rest. It is my focus right now, so hopefully soon. I'm very sorry for the trouble.

This one is a bit more ‘Classic’ — though sadly if you actually want the time to be at all legible you need to increase beyond a 32x32 icon size.

The world’s least legible watch face. Though it does rather struggle with the top of each hour.

I had a database issue this morning that I think is largely resolved now. Things might be slow for a bit though.

All creative work has a starting point, I think you moved well past copying two or three days ago. What is so great about something like this is that they can keep getting better and better.

I collected a few of my thoughts and experiences about experimenting with custom watchOS faces this week. The process has been both tremendously fun and enlightening. My thanks to for the initial push.

I am, I’ve long wanted a digital face with big time but also space for a few complications…

The graphs are scaled for the current week. So older days which exceed your best this week are shortened and marked with a break.

A) it is super fun B) it is the small act I can do to maybe help push apple towards doing it by increasing user’s appetite for them.
