With watchOS 7, Apple Watch has learned to automatically change the watch face depending on the time of day and even your location. For example, if you go to the gym in the morning, mark its geolocation. Upon arrival, you will have a selected sports watch face, where you can display your heart rate, activity rings, and workouts. Or, if you come to work at 10:00, set the “working” dial for this time. Sounds cool? Yes, and it really works.

Of course, there is nothing difficult to swipe and change the watch face on the Apple Watch yourself. Still, when everything is automated, you don’t load your head with unnecessary information and actions – it just does everything for you. At first, it is unusual that the watch becomes noticeably “smarter,” but it is difficult to do without it.

All of this is done through automation in the “Quick Commands” application, and no matter if you’ve ever used iOS Quick Commands before, it’s straightforward. You can choose to have the dial change at specific times or locations.

How to automatically change your Apple Watch face by the time?

  1. Open the Shortcuts app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap the Automation tab at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Select Create Automation For Yourself.
  4. Tap Time of Day to select the time to change the watch face.
  5. Select Add Action.
  6. Start typing in the search “Face,” and from the results, select “Set watch face.”
  7. Choose which watch face you want to put on at a certain time.
  8. Select “Do not ask before launch” to automatically change the watch face.
  9. Click Finish.

The dials are listed in the order of the dials on your watch. The top of the list is the one that appears if you swipe left on the Apple Watch screen.

How to automatically change Apple Watch faces by location.

The principle of setting up automation is the same. Just instead of the time of day, you choose the setting for your location.

  • Open the Shortcuts app on your iPhone.
  • Tap the Automation tab at the bottom of the screen.
  • Select Create Automation For Yourself.
  • Select Add Action.
  • Start typing in the search “Dial,” and from the results, select “Set watch face.”
  • Find the location you need or use the current one to change the dial automatically. I have it, for example, a fitness club.

Here the algorithm of actions is the same. Just choose not the time but the location.

  • Select which watch face you want to put on the selected location.
  • Select “Do not ask before launch” to automatically change the watch face.
  • Click Finish.

This is how your automation might look like after all the settings.

Now I have one dial at night, with a darker shade, so as not to blind, and in the morning – another. Also, I installed different watch faces for training in the gym and at work. For example, I do not need to know how many activities rings I have closed, and more importantly, I have a calendar or to-do application with to-do items at hand.

Ideally, the Apple Watch should have a built-in setting to change the watch face at a specific time. Let’s say a modular watch face is from 10:00 to 18:00, and a dial with photos is from 18:00 to 10:00. It’s strange why Apple hasn’t figured it out yet.
