Using Timepage for Apple Watch
Apps on Apple Watch are automatically installed through the “Automatic App Install” feature in the stock Watch app. If you have the toggle flipped to the “on” position, any app you download from the iOS App Store that has a companion app will be downloaded directly on your watch. With this feature on, once you’ve downloaded Timepage, you ’ll have it for Apple Watch, too – and if you’ve already downloaded the app, it’s probably already on the watch.
If you don’t have “Automatic App Installs” on, the Watch app on your companion iPhone will still recognize the Timepage Apple Watch app. Under the My Watch page in the Watch app, find Timepage under the list of available apps at the bottom of the screen. Tap Install, and Timepage will installed on your Apple Watch.
On the Watch, Timepage will show screens for a week – to access each day, swipe left and right. Along the top of the display, you’ll see the numerical date, week day, and temperature, as well as a glyph for the weather. By tapping on the weather icon, you’ll see the chance of rain and humidity, as well as a graph for the entire day through a right to left swipe.
When you tap on an event, you’ll immediately get information on the weather conditions and travel time to get to your destination. If you have a location set, swipe right to left to see its location on a map; to get directions, tap the map and Timepage will launch Apple Maps.
Timepage also features complications for various watch faces, including options that tell you how many events you have and how long it will take to drive to your next event. Here’s a list of their functions and on what faces they appear:
- Modular – small–travel time for next event today
- Modular – large–event information for next event today
- Utilitarian – small–travel time for next event today
- Utilitarian – large–event information for next event today
- Circular– small–precipitation probability for today
