With InstructureCon 2019 only a few days away, I thought it would be fun to make a custom watch face on my Apple Watch to get me pumped up going into the conference.

Canvas Apple Watch Face


If you want to do the same on your Apple Watch, pick one of the images below (or pick all 3 for some variety) and save it to your iOS Photos app.


Unofficial Canvas Rainbow

Official Canvas Red

Official Canvas White


Then, create a custom watch face of the photo by following the steps below:


  1. From the Photos app, navigate to your new Canvas rainbow photo.
  2. Tap the Share button.
  3. From the share options on the bottom row, find Create Watch Face.
  4. Tap Photos Watch Face.
  5. Set the settings and complications and then tap Add to send the new Watch Face to your Apple Watch.

Dave Dick and I made some Canvas shirts to help promote the Virginia Community College System's transition and rollout of Canvas this Spring among faculty and students. It's a clever play on words to the Virginia is for Lovers slogan.


I think they turned out pretty great.


I'm exited to see some of these floating around Long Beach at #InstructureCon
