With the release of watchOS 10, Apple Watch users can now enjoy a fresh new look and enhanced functionality for their World Clock app. The World Clock app is just one of seven native apps that have been overhauled with the latest update, bringing a beautiful new aesthetic and improved features.
One of the first things you’ll notice about the new World Clock app is its dynamic blue, white, and yellow theme that changes based on the time of day. This brings a visually appealing and immersive experience to the app. In comparison, the previous version of the app had a simple black and orange design.
One of the major improvements to the World Clock app is the ability to easily scroll through different time zones using the Digital Crown. As you scroll, you’ll notice a visual representation of how daylight turns into night based on the time. This feature adds a level of interactivity and engagement to the app.
In addition to the visual enhancements, the World Clock app now offers better functionality for users. If you have allowed location access for the Clock app on your iPhone or Apple Watch, you will see your current location when you launch the World Clock. The app also displays the current time, sunrise, and sunset for the selected location.
To make it even easier to manage your saved locations, the new World Clock app allows you to quickly rearrange them by long-pressing and dragging. These changes will be synced between your iPhone and Apple Watch, ensuring that your preferences are always up-to-date.
One notable feature of the new World Clock app is that it shows the time difference between your current location and the location you are viewing. This can be useful for those who frequently travel or work with people in different time zones. The app also displays the time zone offset, providing a comprehensive view of the time differences.
It is worth noting that the new World Clock UI is unique to watchOS 10 and the old black and orange UI remains on the iPhone with iOS 17.
Overall, the new World Clock app in watchOS 10 brings a fresh and visually appealing experience for Apple Watch users. The enhanced functionality and improved design make it easier than ever to keep track of time zones around the world. Whether you’re a frequent traveler or simply interested in knowing the time in different locations, the World Clock app is a valuable tool for any Apple Watch user.
