Star Trek Apple Watch Faces

Happy New Year! Almost. As a fun project, over the last week or so, I created a couple of watch faces for my Apple watch. These make the watch look as if it runs on the “Library Computer Access/Retrieval System” (or LCARS) from the Star Trek shows set in the 24th century. It makes sense to share these on the day the landmark 800th episode of the franchise is released.

I was inspired by seeing a smart watch on Twitter Christmas Day with an LCARS face and of course, Apple doesn’t offer one. This is the next best thing, making use of the watch face that displays photos. The “buttons” aren’t functional. The only things that are active are the complications that are active from the Apple watch itself.

So, it you’re like me and you’ve been wanting a watch face that looks like it might be used on a federation vessel, feel free to use one of these and enjoy!

To install, save one of the following two files to your iPhone.

Then:

  • Select the image from your gallery.
  • Scroll down and select “Create Watch Face.”
  • Select the “Photos” face.
  • Set the position of the time, “Top” or “Bottom” and choose the complications you want above and below the time.
  • And select “ADD.”

You should be all set. Happy New Year! Comments and suggestions are welcome; if you use the watch face please leave a picture in the comments!

  1. Thanks for this. I’ve been looking for an LCARS face for my Apple Watch and couldn’t find any. This is great!

  2. Actually, that was the second to the last draft. I wasn’t happy with how the white looked on the Starfleet Intelligence and Tactical Operations text because they didn’t blend in with the LCARS look. I like the look of the orange letters better. https://imgur.com/WM3eRWv

    1. That’s very nice, thanks for sharing that! When the semester is finished and I’ve turned in grades, I’m going to work on a set of faces to alternate when the watch opens. That will make the face seem interactive even though it won’t be.
