How to customize your Apple Watch face with complications (for clients)


Clients can now fully customize their Apple Watch face based on how they train with complications. They will see an overview of their training and get quick access to their favourite features right from their watch face. Clients can also choose from some preset watch faces to quickly use.


Complications in traditional watches are similar to the ones on the Apple Watch. They add information beyond the time. If you have a traditional watch with a window for a date, or the weather, you have a complication. They're called complications because they "complicate" the watch. Now you can customize how you "complicate" your Apple Watch with Trainerize faces!
