  10. Tap the share sheet extension in the bottom left corner of the screen
  11. At the very bottom of the screen, scroll right until you find “Create Watch Face” and tap it
  12. Choose “Photos Watch Face”
  13. Edit the Time Position and add up to two Complications
  14. Tap “Add”
  15. In a few seconds your animated watch will appear on your Apple Watch!
  16. The animation will play every time you flick your wrist or 3D (long) press!


OPTIONAL: Create an album of WatchMaker Faces which refresh on every flick of your wrist!

  1. Ensure you have generated at least 1 Apple watchface from WatchMaker so that the WatchMaker album has been created.
  2. Open Apple Watch app in iOS.
  3. Select first tab “My Watch”
  4. Scroll down and select “Photos”
  5. Click Synced Album and select “WatchMaker” album
  6. Select second tab “Face Gallery”
  7. Choose “Photos Watch Face”
  8. Select Synced Album
  9. Edit the Time Position and add up to two Complications
  10. Tap “Add”


Why can't I add custom analog hands, step count, compass, etc

Apple Watch does not support fully custom watch faces with moving hands or dynamic details such as heart rate, pedometer, compass, etc, but WatchMaker takes it further than any app before it by creating ultra smooth watch face animations from the biggest watch face collection in the world (40,000+ faces!).

Once Apple provides full support for custom faces to developers, WatchMaker will add even more options in the future!

My watch faces won't save

Open the Settings app on your iPhone and make sure WatchMaker has access to your photos. apple_watch_4.jpg
