How to Customize Control Center in watchOS 5 on Apple Watch

When Apple introduced an option to edit Control Center in iOS 11 last year, I knew the ability to rearrange Control Center on Apple Watch is not too far away. And pretty much on the expected line, the tech giant has offered an option to edit watchOS 5 Control Center toggles as well so that you can fine-tune CC to suit your workflow.

With watchOS 5 or later, you can choose to change the entire button layout of the Control Center. For instance, if you often use the Water Lock, Theater Mode, or take advantage of the ping feature to play a sound on your iPhone whenever it’s misplaced, you will be able to rearrange the layout of the buttons accordingly. Therefore, whenever you need to bring the oft-used functions into action, getting started will be just a tad easier. Let me show you how to customize Control Center on Apple Watch running watchOS 5!
