    Hi guys
    How can I display the number of steps taken by the Apple Watch as a complication on the Watch face?
    Currently only the rings are displayed and that's not the information I really need front and center for a quick view during the day

    Pedometer uses the data from the iPhone and not the Apple Watch
    The developer says to carry the phone in the pocket
    My job doesn't allow me to carry phones at work but I can use my watch
    I can actually stay connected to my phone since the office wifi is in the whole building but we can't take our phones with us
    I need an app that just displayed stats the Apple Watch takes

    Rather than slow your watch down or consume battery; why don't you simply use one of the modular watch faces that shows for example:- Cal/Min/Hour then if you tap on this compilation and swipe down it will then show you what you ask plus more.
    I myself use this as my watch face, it shows everything I need including all the above plus Total Steps, Total Distance and any Workout Distances. You can even share it with friends to give you that added incentive to better your goals.

    Pedometer gets its data from the phone, but the phone gets its steps data from the watch. Therefore, Pedometer is effectively getting steps data from the watch.

    IMO HealthFace is a better app for making steps (or anything else in the Health app) a complication.

    I believe the step data for third party apps comes from the phone, not the Watch. Only Apple can access the Watch's step data, for now.

    And the Apple Watch's pedometer doesn't have a complication for step data.

    Right. That's what I said. Pedometer gets its data from the phone. BUT, with Apple Watch, the phone gets steps from the watch. Therefore, step data from the phone originally came from the watch. The reason I dumped Pedometer was that it seldom matched the Health app OR the watch.

    And the Apple Watch's pedometer doesn't have a complication for step data.
    Right. Thus if you want a complication for step data you need either Pedometer or, the app I prefer, HealthFace.

    For clarification, the Apple Pedometer (Workout) app gets its data from the Watch and will do so without the phone present.

    As of January this year, Pedometer++ and all third-party pedometer apps need the phone. None of the Apple apps will show only steps as a complication, in real time, which is what I believe opi desired.

    I believe his mention of Pedometer was actually referring to Pedometer++, my erroneous recommendation for his purpose.

    Has any of that changed since or did I miss something?

    Wait though.

    Pedometer++ gets the info from Health. The watch sends it's info to Health.

    That's correct.
    So the OP can just use Pedometer++ and it's complication and everything is all well and good, right?

    Yes. It will do what he wants.

    The free app 'Watch My Health' by Evan DeVrieze will show a steps complete compilation.

    You might try Pedometer++
    Pedometer uses the data from the iPhone and not the Apple Watch
    The developer says to carry the phone in the pocket
    My job doesn't allow me to carry phones at work but I can use my watch
    This makes me think that Pedometer++ won't do what he wants.



    I can actually stay connected to my phone since the office wifi is in the whole building but we can't take our phones with us
    I need an app that just displayed stats the Apple Watch takes
    But then this part makes me scratch my head. If he can stay connected to the phone when it's in the office and he's not (because of WiFi throughout the building), why wouldn't P++ work?

    Pedometer++ will absolutely do what he wants.
