Once you change your language, you’ll see a prompt on Apple Watch that says “Setting Language” in the language that you selected. This takes a while, and it’s almost as if the device is rebooting. Once it completes, you will see the watch face with the new language displayed.

In total, there are over 45 languages supported on the Apple Watch, though some of those are just variants of an existing language.
