“For years I wore a Swiss Army watch with clear, readable sans-serif numbers on the face and not much else, so using the Utility face on the Apple Watch feels a bit like coming home,” Jason Snell writes for Six Colors. “It’s an analog watch face with room for a few complications and a dash of color — but only a dash.”
“I appreciate Utility’s small bursts of highlight color and the flexibility of its complications. I love the analog watch style of the day and date complication inside the circle,” Snell writes. “On the face I use every day, I have most of the complications turned off.

MacDailyNews Take: Likewise, our Apple Watches all sport the Utility face, with a blue highlight, and battery (upper left), temperature (upper right), day/date (mid-right), and activity (bottom).

What’s your favorite Apple Watch face and how is it set up?
