Home Assistant has deep integration with the Apple Watch. You can display Home Assistant information as complications directly on your watch face or launch actions from the Watch app.
The Apple Watch integration requires watchOS 5. In order to install watchOS 5 you must have an iPhone 5s or later with iOS 12 or later, and an Apple Watch Series 1 or newer. The first-generation Series 0 Apple Watch is not compatible with watchOS 5. You can identify your Apple Watch model here.
The Apple Watch has a variety of Faces and Complications. It's useful to consult the Human Interface Guidelines for an example of the different Families and how the particular Complications will display. There are 4 main types of information you can put into Complications:
- Text, which can render as a template, is displayed at various font weights and sizes depending on the template type.
- Ring and Gauge, which appear circular lines. An open variant appears as a complete circle and a closed variant has concrete start and end locations in the icon. Rings and Gauges require numeric values between
1.0(full) and also support templates.
- Images can be selected from the Material Design Icons choices supported by the app.
Ring and Gauge features do not work in app releases prior to 2020.7.
