Apple Watch: Add Friends and Change Their Order

Apple Watch enables you to quickly get in touch with up to twelve contacts you designate as Friends using the Friends app on Apple Watch. This app enables you to phone any friend or send them a text message. If your friend also has Apple Watch, it is possible to send him or her a sketch, a emoji or your heartbeat. Use the Friends screen in the Apple Watch app on iPhone to control which friends appear on Apple Watch, as well as their order.
