HOW TO change apple watch face wallpaper

 Paris Night Vol.2 Bracelet (18k gold plated)

Apple has restricted customization on its watch faces for Apple Watch, it's almost impossible to make the standard wallpaper presets stylish and chic. You can only use your photos as Apple Watch wallpapers with the digital clock look.

Luckily, we can use the "Clockology" app to transform our Apple Watch into a luxurious timepiece!! 🥰 It's a free app for designing watchface, and is super easy to use. You can download watchfaces online and sync them onto your watch through the app!

Love Mesh Bracelet (18k gold plated)

Here's a tutorial for the app, and some beautiful watch faces for women I'd love to share with you! (take me directly to the watchfaces)

(The Clockology team has made upgrades to their App and changed the file format of its clockfaces over the Summer 2022, and we've updated our tutorial below as well!)

1. Download the Clockology app on your iPhone from App Store.
You can download the app directly on the iPhone's App Store. If the app is not automatically installed onto your Apple Watch, open the Watch app on iPhone, look for Clockology from the available apps, and click "Install".

 This app requires watchOS 6.0 or later, compatible with all Apple Watch Series 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and SE.


2. Set up "always on" for the Clockology app.
On the Watch app on iPhone, go to "General", "Return to Clock", and scroll down and click Clockology in the apps section. For "Return to clock", choose "Custom" and "After 1 hour". This allows the Clockology app to stay on as long as it detects your wrist movement.


3. Synchronising watchface to your Apple Watch
You're ready to sync new watchfaces to your watch! Download our watchfaces here via Safari, then open it through the iPhone app Clockology. Open the clockology app on your Apple Watch, then click the sync button on the right hand side of the watchface on your iPhone.

 This app requires watchOS 6.0 or later, compatible with all Apple Watch Series 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and SE.


4. Saving your watchface as backup
As you can see from my screenshots above, you can make changes to the watchface on your own. The clockology app only supports the editting for one clockface at a time, and the clockface file is not automatically saved nor backuped. Therefore, if you want to edit a second watchface, remember to save the first one!

You can save your files to "On My iPhone" or "iCloud Drive". Click the button on the left of the watchface to save it.


P.s. If you've previously used the App Version 1, you may have heard of something called the "Beta file", which hides the Apple Watch's numeric clock on the top right corner of the screen. This beta file is no longer needed in the newest version of app.


5. Now's the fun part! Download beautiful watchfaces!
You're all set! You can browse through watchfaces directly through your Clockology app, join online forums like "Clockology Fans" on Facebook, or take a look at our beautiful designs for women below! You can click the below links (under the image) to download them through Safari, open them in the Clockology app, then sync them to your watch.
