Fancy Up Your Apple Watch

Thanks to a sweet adoptive mama pal, I recently discovered the Rhonna Designs app. Great for all things graphic design, this app is super fun for those of you who enjoy editing photos and designing frames text. I don’t know who Rhonna is, but I really like her style!

While playing with the Rhonna Designs and RhonnaCollage apps - and by complete accident - I figured out how to make fun little Watch Faces for my Apple Watch! Here are a few I’ve doodled up so far:

Now, let me tell ya. I really love my Apple Watch. I’m about 2 years in and really value the way my Watch helps me manage my calendar, notifications, and messages in a way that is least intrusive to my present actions and conversations. I intend to maximize my productivity and time this year by tweaking how my Watch works for me.

But those built in Watch faces, y’all? They are just not my style. Not a single one. I’m not a military kind of person, or a butterfly kind of person, or a flower kind of person, or a half-blind-so-my-numbers-are-ginormous kind of person.

To create some Watch faces that reflect YOUR style,  just download the Rhonna Collage app (may be a part of a Rhonna Designs bundle, but you wouldn’t regret getting them all). You could probably do the same thing with another graphic design app, so just play around with what you have. 

Omce you’ve created your design, just save it to your photos and go there to open it. Then click the “Share” button in the bottom left corner.

From here, you can choose “Create a Watch Face.” *Note: Your Apple Watch must have the current OS update to complete this process.

Now you can choose Photo or Kaleidoscope Watch Face. Go with Photo to keep your design as you originally created it.

Here you can customize how you want your Watch Face to look. Add time, date, activity, calendar, etc. and choose placement for each. When you like it, select “Add.”

It should automatically update your Watch to reflect the new Face but if not, just go to your Apple Watch App on your phone and you can set it manually. 

Happy creating!
