Looping and Apple Watch 6

Apple has the Watch 6 40mm on sale for $374.98 today here
so I bit the bullet and bought it.

For those of you loopers out there, what do I need to learn / know to to get it working on Monday when it arrives? I hear Loop has its own watch face but I’ve also heard of something called complications? I’m brand new to Apple Watches coming from a Huwawei watch 2 (selling btw, so if anyone is interested, PM me) so am totally unfamiliar.

Can you post what you are using watch face wise and where you got it?

I’ve also heard it is a good idea to hook things to sugar mate and turn on a feature where it calls your phone if you go to low/high?

My ultimate wish is to eventually (ie 3 months or less) get an iPhone S12 Pro Plus and go completely Apple but in steps. I’m just too much of an Android fan boy though so I got quite a learning curve.

Any help you can point me to would be greatly appreciated.

Until you get an iPhone you’re out of luck.

You require an iPhone to set up an Apple Watch.

Once set up, you can use a cellular Apple Watch while using an Android phone, but the watch won’t pair to the phone, so they won’t exchange data

IIRC @BradP is using an IPhone for the looping part of his system but has an android for his actual phone. I don’t have an IPhone anymore nor have I ever had a apple watch so can’t give any other advice on this topic :upside_down_face:.

Sorry for the confusion. I’m currently rocking the Iphone SE 2020 as a backup / medical phone and a Samsug S10+ as my main driver but am seriously considering moving to the iPhone 12 Pro Plus.

I can’t remember where, but I know one one of the boards people were rocking the iWatch and some were using the stock Loop watch face and others had cool looking original watch faces that had looping complications. Not quite sure what a complication is and how it works.
