Code discovered on watchOS four.three.1 suggests this might change sooner or later.

Certainly one of its strategies has a really attention-grabbing log message:
There are some vital factors value contemplating. First, even with the code, third-party Apple Watch faces haven’t been carried out. Second, Apple might simply take away this code in future variations of watchOS.
Apple has by no means allowed third-party faces on its wearable gadget. As a substitute, the corporate has launched new official watch faces with every model of watchOS. For instance, in watchOS four, Apple launched the Siri and kaleidoscope watch faces.
With this 12 months’s Worldwide Builders Convention (WWDC) just some weeks away, we might hear extra about third-party Apple Watch faces quickly.
