    Under 48 hours to go until I start using the Watch. Is there a setting for seeing the battery percentage on the Watch face? I don't have any third party apps installed (yet, maybe a while after I fully know how to use the Watch) so I don't know if there is a way to show the percentage without third party apps complications.

    Yep! It's a standard, stock complication; I put it on the top right of every watch face I use.

    (One thing I'd love: a complication to show *the phone's* battery level...)

    Do you change the setting in the Watch app on the iPhone or in the Watch face on the Watch?

    The App Store has a few, none free as I recall. Juicer is one.

    You can do it either way.

    Ok, but I'd prefer a stock complication. Or just tapping the complication to show me watch and phone battery level (if the watch is connected at the time.)

    Great to know! I'll do that when I start using my Watch the day after tomorrow.

    I'm guessing it's your birthday then? Is a happy birthday in order? Enjoy your watch!

    I like the complication also, but you can always just swipe up and see your battery percentage if you don't use it.

    I don't use the watch battery complication on the activity face for just this reason. I still use it with the modular face, but I'm not sure why. I charge every night and not once has battery life ever been an issue.

    I want the complication because I want to know at a glance what the battery level is - I don't want to require a swipe. Otherwise I wouldn't use the complication anyway.

    I used to have it as a complication and dropped it same as you. It was just unnecessary for me and that made room for useful complications.

    I set up the complication with the battery percentage when I got the Watch on Friday.

    I did try it but then realised it was a waste of a complication. Especially as I couldn't read it at a glance anyway

    I can read it easily the way I set it up.

    It's an amazing device. I'm most impressed with the battery life and bright display!

    Where did you have it and on which Watch face?

    I don't have a problem reading mine either, and I use the itty bitty complication. Quite honestly, I don't need to use it now that I have the S2 and it consistently makes it through the day without issue.
