The 5th watchOS generation comes with plenty of new features like the Walkie-Talkie push-to-talk option, audio Group FaceTime calls and more. While the majority of improvements are available for all watchOS 5 compatible devices, there’s a new Infograph Watch Face that’s only displaying on the Apple Watch Series 4 models. This new theme takes advantage of the enlarged screen real estate and can host up to eight complications.

There are in fact two Infograph Watch Face options: the standard one which has an analog clock format and Infograph Modular which is an updated version of the classic Modular background, available since the beginnings. The enhancement is that Infograph Modular can now acoomodate six complications instead of 5. One can select from both built-in shortcuts of the native apps, as well as external complications from third-party applications.
