It has probably happened to you that someone compliments you about your Apple Watch watch face, unfortunately, there was never a way to share it. WatchOS 7 changes that and it is possible to share your Apple Watch watch faces.
You can easily share the watch face via Messages or Mail, but also via AirDrop and the other sharing options. You can also download watch faces online or directly from the App Store.
Share watch faces via Apple Watch
- Activate the watch face on your Apple Watch
- Put your finger on the screen and wait a few moments
- The editing options are activated
- Tap the share button
- Choose a desired contact, message and send
On the submission form, tap the watch face name to change additional options. Using the Apple Watch, it is only possible to share the watch face via messages or Mail. That is different via your iPhone completely, because there you can choose the traditional sharing options.
Share watch face via iPhone
- Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone
- Navigate to ‘My Watch’
- Open the desired watch face at the top
- Tap the share button at the top of the screen
- Choose the desired sharing option
At the top of the sub-form, you will find the ‘Options’ button. By tapping here you can specify the complications and you have the option to add data. By default, the watch faces are sent without data.
Downloadable via watchface file
Unlike some photos and documents, Apple does not create an iCloud link from the watch face, it actually sends a watch face file. It can only be opened on watchOS 7 or iOS 14 devices. Developers can offer this file online so you can also download the watch face from a website or from the App Store. Do you like the above watch face for Apple Watch Series 4 or newer?
