What is a WATCHFACE file?

A WATCHFACE file is a watch face created for use with an Apple Watch. It contains all the complications placed on the watch face, as well as any specified colors, features, or images. Users can share WATCHFACE files from their Apple Watch or the Apple Watch app for iOS.

When a user adds a WATCHFACE file as a watch face, their Apple Watch checks for the apps that provide that watch face's complications. If the user is missing any requisite apps, their Apple Watch prompts them to install the missing apps.
