You aren’t able to change the color of each item separately, instead, each widget will have the same color change, but I don’t think it is too much of an issue.

However, this watch face does drain your battery, especially if you have lots of widgets visible on it. 

If you regularly charge your Garmin this shouldn’t be much of an issue, but it is worth keeping in mind so you don’t end up with a dead watch!
