With InstructureCon 2019 only a few days away, I thought it would be fun to make a custom watch face on my Apple Watch to get me pumped up going into the conference.

If you want to do the same on your Apple Watch, pick one of the images below (or pick all 3 for some variety) and save it to your iOS Photos app.

Then, create a custom watch face of the photo by following the steps below:


  1. From the Photos app, navigate to your new Canvas rainbow photo.
  2. Tap the Share button.
  3. From the share options on the bottom row, find Create Watch Face.
  4. Tap Photos Watch Face.
  5. Set the settings and complications and then tap Add to send the new Watch Face to your Apple Watch.
