Language settings in Watch Face Studio

Using Watch Face Studio (WFS), you can design watch faces that display language-specific content.

The following features can display localized content:

  • Digital clock component
  • Labels

Digital clock component

WFS content automatically adjusts to match the language setting of the phone the watch is paired with. In your watch design, select a default language. If the language selected on the phone isn't supported by WFS, the default language displays instead.

When you build your watch face, you can add localized labels to components and select which language the labels are in. Labels display when the user performs a touch & hold on components on the watch face.

If the phone's set language isn't supported by your watch design, the design's default language displays on the label.

Configure a label

The following example shows how to add localized labels. Labels are configured when you build the watch face.

  1. Once the watch face design is completed, click the build icon to build your watch face.
  2. In the Build window, update the default label.
