Language settings in Watch Face Studio

In 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

Content is automatically adjusted based on the language setting of the phone with which the watch is paired. In your watch design, select one or more languages to automatically display. If the language selected on the phone isn't supported, the default language is displayed instead.

The default language is used when the paired phone's language is a language that isn't available for the digital clock component.


When you build your watch face, you can add localized labels to components and select which language the labels are in. Labels are displayed when the user long presses components on the watch face.

If the phone's language isn't supported, the default language is displayed on the label.
