    I mostly use the watch faces that allow for 4 complications. To me, complications are one of the features that make the Apple Watch so useful. What do you guys use?

    One thing I wish there was an option of with modular is seconds on the time display. I love the flexibility of all the complications but I’d also love seconds on the display.

    I guess BeWeather2 would be my favorite complication, but to be honest it really depends on which watch face I'm using that particular day and what I'm doing.

    I use the Activity Digital 90% of the time with:
    Top right: temperature
    Top left: date
    Bottom: HealthFace steps

    I've enjoyed the HealthFace app, but I don't really care so much about steps anymore so I've been thinking about changing that complication.

    Right now I have AccuWeather and WaterMinder in the upper left and right corners and Activity and Workouts in the lower left and right corners. I also have the date on the right center of the "Simple" watch face.

    I do switch my faces around, but I tend to come back to this one 95% of the time.

    For me, Date and Activity are the top two must haves, Battery is third. I put in weather and calendar when I can as well.

    Battery is a complication I used when I first got the watch, but since I charge every night I quickly discovered I didn't need to monitor battery and haven't used it since.

    Actually can just swipe up to see the battery status, hence I no longer use the battery complication.

    Can you post a picture of your watch face? I am curious to see what the HealthFace steps complication looks like. Coming back to my AW from a Fitbit, I liked how my Fitbit constantly displayed the steps.

    Before you spend the money, you should know that the complication doesn't update constantly like the Fitbit does so often the step count is wrong until you click it to refresh. A free alternative is that if you have the activity complication, you can just click on it to see your steps.

    Thanks! So you actually have to update the HealthFace complication? Does it update on its own, just not often? I’m surprised that there isn’t a native apple complication for the steps. I have the activity digital watch face so I have the circles that I can click on. But I just got too used to the way my Fitbit showed my steps so I could see my progress for the day pretty quickly.

    It does update on its own, but I don't have any idea how often. If I really want to be sure it's right, then I'll click on it to force an update.

    Thanks! I might see if WatchOS 4 has that option in another thread before I pay the $1.99. I’m not being cheap, just don’t see a point in paying it if WatchOS will have it.

    Good idea. I just did a web search and found that the watch OS limits the number of times complications can update to 50 times per day in order to preserve battery life. Don't have any idea if that's really true, but it sounds plausible.

    It somewhat makes sense. The 50 Times per day comes out to every 28.8 minutes so it isn’t terrible.
