The Apple Watch is a great mini computer that straps to your wrist and one of the best features is the inclusion of complications. The little bits of information they can show, at all times, is great. But sometimes you want to go all minimal and use a watch face that isn’t quite so function over form.

That’s where this new watchOS 8 concept comes into play.

Shared to YouTube by Matt Birchler, the video shows us how complications could be removed from the watch face and placed into Control Center. Few of us ever actually use Control Center, so the upward gesture on the watchOS Home screen could easily invoke a screen full of complications instead. Swipe again, and you’d see your settings and whatnot. It’s an idea that’s so simple it’s hard to believe nobody else thought of it.

This method would allow people to pick a watch face that more suits their style even if they want to still have complications when they need them. Of course, whether Apple would go this route is a matter for debate and we’ve only just got Home screen widgets on iOS – how many years could it be before something like this comes to watchOS?

Still, we can all hope it’s a watchOS 8 feature, can’t we?
