Apple’s watchOS complications are a great way to get information from your favourite apps at a glance, but they’ve generally suffered from one important limitation — you can only have one complication per app, per watch face. Although a few developers have found clever ways to work around this, for the most part it prevents users from setting up more focused watch faces for specific tasks.
With watchOS 7, however, Apple will now allow developers to enable multiple complications on the same face, along with richer complications. This will empower specialized watch faces for things like workouts, baby monitoring, or busy workdays, allowing the same information to be presented in different ways. For example, a weather app could provide multiple complications for temperature, precipitation, and wind speed, while a workout app could offer calories burned, heart rate, and distance in multiple complications on the same face.
Apple is also offering up its own advanced complications and new watch faces, including a chronograph face that includes an integrated tachometer, and an X-Large face that will provide room for one big rich complication right in the center.
