Apple Watch Limitations

At this point, Apple does not allow you to create / install a watch face that is different than the stock ones. You can see the list of stock faces here.

There is a way to turn any GIF into a “Live Photo” that the watch will animate when waking or on long press. WatchMaker uses this feature to create ultra smooth watch face animations from the biggest watch face collection in the world (40,000+ faces!).

This still does not allow any special features or “code” support. Hence complications such as step count, compass or interactive elements are not available to developers.

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

To see working examples of what can already be done with WatchMaker on Apple Watch, please check this link or see below.
