Apple watch has grown popular over the years and has also dominated the smartwatch market. Apple Watch allows you to customize the watch face and add complications. But when it comes to adding third-party watch faces, it is still a locked ecosystem.
Automatic Watch Faces is an app that allows you to set watch faces outside the built-in watch faces as provided by apple. Automatic Watch Faces is not available in the App Store.
