    I’m not sure how I missed this, but you can now use the shortcuts app on iOS 14 and watchOS 7 to create time and event based shortcuts that can do things like change the watch face. So, for example, I always do a workout sometime in the morning, and wake between about 6 and 7, so I have a shortcut that runs every morning at 6 am to change my watch face to Infograph, which has complications for activity, workout, and my podcast app Overcast - all things I can launch from the watch face as I start my workout - and then another that switches my watch face to my preferred Meridian watch face every time a workout ends.

    This is amazing!

    Yes, personal automation is a life saver.
    Makes it so much easier to do stuff automatically without having to worry about forgetting stuff.



    These are mine.
    1st is that every night my 3 alarms is set for the morning. 5:20, 5:25 and 5:30 am. In case I miss one, the others will definitely wake me.

    2nd is when I enable Bedtime mode, my 5.1 surround set computer speakers are powered off, my bedroom led strips are turned off, my TV is paused in case I forgot to turn it off and that my Smart Thermostat is lowered a few degrees as I don’t need it heating when I’m asleep.

    3rd and 4th turns on AoD when workout starts en off when workout ends. I don’t have AoD enabled at all times.

    Hopefully this will inspire someone to do more with personal automations.

    Well, having to remember to set the alarm every night before going to bed makes me anxious.
    Now I don’t have to worry about that.
    And yes, I don’t use the repeat alarm feature because I hate seeing that clock icon on the status bar.
    So, using this automation has made my life a little more easier.
