Apple Watch custom watch face 2

Hamza Sood, a well-known member of the jailbreak community who likes to dabble in code, just tweeted a video of an Apple Watch running a custom watch face. The video, which is 23 seconds long, shows a custom watch face with running on a stainless steel Apple Watch with Milanese loop. Check out the full video and tell us what you think.

As you can see, Hamza has a custom watch face installed on his Apple Watch running watchOS 2 beta. The other watch face seen is an Apple internal tester. He’s also posted the source code for his on GitHub.

As far as what exact methods he used to pull off loading the watch face on his Apple Watch, that’s the million dollar question…

Apple Watch custom watch face

As mentioned, not only does the video show off a custom watch face, but he’s also made it so that the standard color customization feature shows two colors at once. The colors are then shown and blended together on the custom face.

Impressive, indeed.

    Sounds encouraging for a future jailbreak. ^_^

      If the iPhone is jailbroken, and the Watch runs from the phone why don’t we have one already?

      • CS

        It’s runs a different OS

      • JaeM1llz

        Because the Apple Watch runs watchOS 2 which is completely separate from iOS.

      • Jonathan

        The Watch runs a custom OS (not iOS) so you can’t install any desired tweak/app.

  • Sigfredo Martinez

    Wonder if Apple will also pay off this dev to not develop this.

  • Apple’s worst Nightmare; it destroys the Brand and the Concept

  • Your Mother

    $350 for a watch and you cant even use the watch face you want?

    • Jordan Agaran Riley

      There are plenty of non smart watches that are way more expensive and there’s only one face. Back in the good old days

    • CS

      Remember the iPhone couldn’t have a custom home screen until iOS 4 😉

    Good Job!

  • I’ve totally been waiting for customized faces and I really appreciate Hamza’s efforts, however I would like to see something a little more polished. Can’t wait to see what else they come up with.

    Pebble Time! 🙂
