The biggest new feature in 1Password 8 for Apple Watch are complications. If you don’t now what they are, those are tiny bits of information that you can add to your watch face. So instead of having to open the app, you can see what’s important at a glance.
With complications, for example, you can always have a two-factor code or something else easily viewable on your watch face.
On the Apple Watch app, you’ll have access to view all custom field, like multi-line notes and custom item icons. Markdown is also supported on the Apple Watch.
To always have access to a specific items on your Apple Watch, even without an Internet connection or if you’re away from your iPhone, you can securely sync the data to the watch. To do that, find a specific item on the iPhone and choose the … menu. Then tap Add to Apple Watch.
When viewing passwords, you can also see the information in Large Type to make it easier to add long strings of text.
