Add Watch Faces to Your Apple Watch with Ease

Look, it is sad that Apple doesn’t allow third party watch faces for Apple watch, but that’s probably to ensure that users don’t end up losing battery life over unoptimised watch faces. Plus there’s a privacy aspect to watch faces as well. Whatever the reason, it’s at least good that there are a lot of built-in watch faces on the Apple Watch and installing or deleting them is a breeze. So, go ahead, add all your favourite watch faces to your Apple Watch and enjoy!
