How To Fix Complications Not Working In watchOS 10

White boxes instead of complication data show up in Always-On mode when a restriction is applied in Settings.

Please check the following:

  • 1. Click the Digital Crown and go for Settings.
  • 2. Scroll for Display & Brightness -> Always On.
  • 3. Go for Show Complication Data and make sure that it’s turned On!
  • Extra tip: If it’s enabled scroll through the allowed Apps list and make sure that all apps are allowed to display the complications. Else, a white box will be generated instead!
