New ways to stay connected.

Watch Faces

Style with substance.
From pretty to practical. Whether you’re seeking more functionality at your fingertips or just want to give your wrist a flash of fashion, there are all-new faces to suit your moods and serve your interests.
See more at a glance. Go deeper with a tap. New complications give you instant access to more of the apps and features you want, right where you want them. See current decibel levels, or chance of rain. Tap to record a voice memo or use the Calculator app to figure out the tip.

“10:09am”

Tick. Tock. Tap. Talk. Now you have new ways to mark time. The Taptic Engine inside your watch can silently tap out the hour on your wrist. You can set a chime to ring in the new hour. And when you hold two fingers on your watch face, it will tell you the time out loud.

App Store

Now open on a wrist near you.
You can’t beat the location. Shop tens of thousands of apps and download directly to your wrist. From fitness to finance, maps to music, it’s never been easier to find new apps.
Discover new apps while barely lifting a finger. Browse curated collections and use Dictation to speed your search.
Multiply your powers. Calculator, Voice Memos, and a redesigned Reminders. Now you can access your favorite Apple apps even more easily.
Add a little character to messages. Now you can add Animoji stickers to make messages sent from your watch even more memorable and expressive.

New ways to stay motivated.

Activity Trends

Track your progress over time.
Keep pace over the long run. Daily metrics from your watch are stored in the Activity app on your iPhone. Trends compares your latest 90-day averages to longer-term performance over the past 365 days. If you’re losing ground, you’ll receive tailored coaching suggestions to get you back on track.

New ways to keep an eye on your health.

Cycle Tracking

Stay in sync and in the know.
Knowledge is healthy. Gaining insight into your menstrual cycle can help provide a clearer picture of your overall health. In addition to simply ensuring that you’re prepared, you’ll have more information to help you track irregularities and symptoms and enrich discussions with your doctor.
Tracking is as simple as tapping. Use the Cycle Tracking app to log daily information about your menstrual cycle. You can add flow information, record symptoms such as headaches or cramps, and easily see cycle length and variation. It all comes together in a simple, graphical chart in the redesigned Health app on your iPhone.
Where are you in your cycle? Using information you’ve logged, the Cycle Tracking app on Apple Watch can alert you when it predicts that your next period or fertile window is about to start.* You can even track results from an ovulation prediction kit and readings from a basal body thermometer.

Hearing Health

Now Apple Watch covers your ears.
When it goes to 11, take five. Noise can rise to levels that may damage your hearing without you even realizing it. The new Noise app senses when the roar of the crowd or the rumble of machinery reaches a level that may pose a risk. So you can step out or plug up to give your ears a needed break.
If it’s too loud, you can feel it. Your watch monitors your environment’s ambient noise and tracks the duration of your exposure. When Apple Watch detects that the decibel level has risen to a point where hearing could be affected, it can notify you with a tap on the wrist.
