I’m lucky to be running Nozbe - an app used by SMART business owners from all over the world.

Modular Ultra watch face with World Clock complications

This year, like every year, on WWDC Apple didn’t give us custom watch faces for the Apple Watch. I’m no longer holding my breath for that. Luckily I can always customize my Apple Watch Ultra with complications and with one of the most flexible of the watch faces - Modular Ultra.

Now I have a special “World Clock” watch face configured with times in Los Angeles, Chicago/Texas, New York on top, my time in the center, world night-day complication and at the bottom I have London, Taipei and Tokyo.

Now come to think of it, I might be tempted to create more such dedicated watch faces based on this Modular Ultra as this way I can have a nice clock with lots of complications depending on their purpose. I’ll keep you posted. Any watch faces recommendations?
