More on Color Complications on the Utility Apple Watch Face

In addition to my complaint about the new color version of the activity complication on the Utility face, Ben Thompson observes that the alarm and timer complications are hard-coded as orange now. I missed that, because I use the light orange seconds hand — I assumed these tints always matched.

Apple really screwed the pooch on the Utility face in WatchOS 2.0. Did Alan Dye lose a bet? These complications all looked better before, in monochrome. They should have done what they did with the Modular face, and added a distinct “Multicolor” option to the color choices for the Utility face, for people who enjoy this sort of garishness.
