How to Add, Remove, or Rearrange Apple Watch Faces in watchOS 3

Managing Watch faces in watchOS 3 have become a lot easier now and you can do it all right from your iPhone paired with Apple Watch.

watchOS 3 is widely considered to be a major shot in the arm for Apple Watch. Apart from a redesigned UI, there are a number of exciting features like iOS-style Control Center that have immensely enhanced the user experience.

As soon as I had a look at the watchOS 3 and gave it a try for a couple of days, it really passed my acid test with good marks.
