How SpecialFaces Works
Did you know Apple Watch comes pre-loaded with several cool looking watch faces? However, to enable and use them you must own a specific model of Apple Watch. This is where SpecialFaces Cydia tweak comes in.
SpecialFaces Cydia tweak allows you to enable locked watch faces on your Apple Watch. You can enable the following watch faces with this tweak –
- Nike+ Digital
- Nike+ Analog
Now onto the installation tutorial.
- An Apple Watch running watchOS 3.0-3.1.1
- A jailbroken iPhone running iOS 10-10.2 firmware
- Cydia Installer
Since Apple Watch does not have a jailbreak, you must have a jailbroken iOS device to use this Cydia tweak.
How to Enable Hermès and Nike+ watch faces on your Apple Watch
Step 1 Start Cydia application.
Step 2 Go to Sources > Edit > Add
Step 3 Add AppleBetas’ repository to Cydia – repo.applebetas.co. This repo was down for a little while but it’s now back up.
Step 4 Install SpecialFaces package.
Step 5 Once the tweak gets installed successfully, go to the Face Gallery tab inside Watch app.
Step 6 Enable the watch face of your choice.
This tweak comes with a catch, though. Due to Apple Watch’s in-built protection, Apple Watch doesn’t allow you to use unauthorized watch face.
If you enter the Edit mode or restart your Apple Watch, your added watch face will be gone. You will then need to re-enable it via Watch application on your iPhone.
Since this tweak is still under development, minor bugs are to be expected. Your selected watch face may crash or disappear altogether from the display.
Did you Change watch face of your Apple Watch?
You can now play around with the different watch face and choose the one that best suits your setup. This is, without a doubt, the best tweak for Apple Watch right now.
Here’s what it looks like once enabled. Looks slick, doesn’t it?
The tweak has several glitches and bugs. Hopefully, developer AppleBetas will fix it soon. Moreover, the fact that there’s no jailbreak for the Apple Watch, complicates things even more.
