Laying out your Apple Watch apps on your Apple Watch’s Home screen properly is an important factor in your efficiency and, ultimately, contributes to your overall satisfaction. Apple Watch is, after all, Apple’s most personal device, and the Home screen is a place where you can really personalize your Watch exactly to your needs.
As with determining which apps earn the right to be a part of your Glances, and in what order, the Home screen on Apple Watch is an intensely personal thing. No two Watches that aren’t straight out of the box will look the same on the Home screen or in Glances.
We’ve been tinkering for two weeks now with various methods of app layouts, so we’ll share one (below) that we’re liking well enough currently. It’s a work in progress, especially as we’re testing so many Apple Watch apps right now.
If you have a link to a screenshot of your Apple Watch app layout either from the Apple Watch itself or from the Apple Watch app on iPhone, you can post its URL (ends in .png or .jpg) in the comments below or email the image to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add the most interesting ones to this post.
(On Apple Watch take a screenshot by pressing the Digital Crown/Home button and the Side button simultaneously. On iPhone, press the Home and the Sleep/Wake buttons simultaneously.)
MacDailyNews Note: If this is too soon, fret not, we’ll repost this down the road as more people get their Apple Watches and can share their layouts.

Steve says: I had a bunch more apps but made a decision to get rid of everything I suspected I would never use. I’m sure I’ll add more as more great apps hit the App Store, but I will keep only 3 apps along the top and 3 along the bottom, with the rest going side to side, expanding evenly, and organized as much as possible by type. Everything I use most is directly accessible from the watch without having to navigate. The very bottom is organized the same way as my iPhone.
