The Apple Watch is a great smartwatch, but it’s not the best timepiece. While Apple does provide rudimentary date and time widgets, you might want to create your own complication that goes well with your setup. Take the Infographic watch face, for example. It’s probably the best Apple Watch face because you get to use eight complications at the same time and it shows the time in analog. But if you want to see the time in a digital format, you can only put it in one place, and even then, it shows the seconds count as well (which can be quite distracting). Create a Complication Using Watchsmith App on iPhone You can create your own digital clock complication quite easily using the free Watchsmith app. Below, you can see the difference between the default time complication (left) and the one that we will create using the Watchsmith app (right). As you might have noticed, the default Time complication is hidden behind the analog watch hands. The custom complication adjusts … [Read more...] about How to Create Date and Time Complications for Apple Watch
Your iPhone can be used as an alarm clock, a stopwatch, and a timer . However, If you have an Apple Watch, you don’t have to take out your phone to use any of these tools. Your watch has built-in apps that perform the same functions. RELATED: How to Use the Alarm, Stopwatch, and Timer in iOS 9 The alarm, stopwatch, and timer apps on the Apple Watch are independent of the same apps on your iPhone.

How to Use the Alarm You can set multiple alarms on your Apple Watch. As we mentioned, the Alarm app on Apple Watch is completely separate from the Alarm app on the iPhone. However, if you have an alarm set on your iPhone and you’re wearing your Apple Watch when it goes off, the watch will alert you and allow you to snooze or dismiss it. To open the Alarm app on your watch, press the digital crown to access … [Read more...] about How to Set Alarms and Timers on the Apple Watch
Digital cameras use a sensor that captures light to make a photo. The size of the sensor affects how your images look, so you’ll often see photographers and tutorials referring to crop sensor and full frame sensor cameras. Here’s how to know which you have—and understand the difference. Full Frame vs. Crop Sensor Before digital cameras came along, the most popular film for photography was 35mm format. It’s 36mm x 24mm (1.4 inches x 0.94 inches) in size. Full frame cameras use a digital sensor that’s about the same size as 35mm-format film. This was convenient for transitioning between film and digital, as it kept things as similar as possible. Photographers could use the same lenses and, if they used the same settings, images would look much the same. However, full-frame sensors are pretty big and expensive. They’re much larger than what is necessary to take good digital photos, so most consumer cameras use a smaller, cheaper, “cropped” sensor. (For comparison, a full-frame … [Read more...] about Do I Have a Crop Sensor or Full Frame Camera?
