Tap on the Face Gallery tab and choose a dark watch face. 3. Tap the ADD button to add the new watch face to your collection. It will sync to your Apple Watch automatically. 4. Open the My Watch tab at the bottom of the screen to make edits to the new face. 12.

Tap Wake Screen. 4. Here you can configure the screen activation options. 5. Try the option to allow the Digital Crown to wake the display. A tap works too.
