Which Apple Watch Glances I’m using 

I’ve had my Apple Watch for a month now and feel like I’ve settled into a routine with it. I deal with the handful of notification types I allow to show up on my wrist. I don’t use many third-party apps, and — unlike some people I know — actually use and like Glances.

In this pre-SDK era, third-party Glances are pretty simple, so I’m only using a couple of them. However, Apple’s can be interactive, and by mixing them with the couple of critical third-party ones, Glances have become a quick way for me to know what’s going on with my devices and jump into the apps I use most.

I haven’t tinkered much with the order or number of Glances in a couple of weeks, so I feel like my usage is stable enough to show off how I have it setup:

In order, they are:

  1. Settings
  2. Now Playing
  3. Overcast
  4. Calendar
  5. Weather
  6. OmniFocus
  7. Activity
  8. Heartbeat
  9. Battery

For reference , I use the Simple watch face most of the time, with these complications:

  1. Weather
  2. Activity
  3. Calendar
  4. Sunrise/Sunset

(I am still working on a review, I promise.)
