watchOS 4 and the Siri Watch Face

I’ve been running the watchOS 4 beta for a few days now, and it’s given me some ideas on how to improve watchOS.

The Siri face is a great idea, but I don’t think I’ll be using it. I primarily use the Modular face, and the Siri interface doesn’t show me enough information at a glance. What I’d like to see is to bring that intelligence to my existing watch faces.

  • Only show my calendar in the large spot during work hours.
  • Move Runkeeper to a complication around the time I generally work out. Bring the Activity complication from a small slot to the large slot once an hour during a glance.
  • Bring Home to a complication around bedtime.

These are just a few simple ideas, but I like the direction the Siri face shows. I’d just like to see it brought to the entire watchOS experience.
