Working with iPhone, Apple Watch puts communications right on your wrist. You can make and receive phone calls, dictate texts, takes actions using Siri, send and receive messages and e-mails. You can also communicate with other Apple Watch users via digital touch.
Apple Watch Amazing Facts
Communicating With Apple Watch
- Advertising Focused on Fashion: In comparison to other Apple products and competing smartwatches designed and developed by other companies, marketing of Apple Watch before it was launched was focused more on advertising the device as a fashion accessory. For example, a 12-page advertising spread for Apple Watch in an issue of Vogue focused on the different combinations of body and band styles available, and downplayed the technological aspects of it. However, Apple also underlined Apple Watch’s health and fitness-oriented features, as well as some useful features for wheelchair users and a new Breathe app.
- iWatch and Apple Watch: Apple Watch was not branded as iWatch due to trademark conflicts. In the United States, the iWatch trademark is owned by OMG Electronics and the company was crowdfunding its own watch under this name. In the European Union, the name is owned by Irish firm Probendi.
- Viewing the Time Discreetly: On the second series of Apple Watch, if you want to check in on the time without raising your wrist, you can slowly twist the digital crown upwards. As soon as you do this, it will brighten up the screen gradually to let you peek in instead of fully illuminating the watch screen.
- Unlock Apple Watch from the iPhone: If the user didn’t unlock Apple Watch in the initial setup process, he or she can unlock the Watch and iPhone at the same time without having to hammer in a passcode. To do this, the user should go to the Watch companion app. Once there the user can toggle the Unlock with iPhone feature on or off. Keep in mind that the Apple Watch must be on the wrist for this feature to work though.
- Organize the App Dock: With watchOS 3, it is possible to view all currently open apps. To view apps, press the action button. The user can also customize how these open apps are displayed. After the user has pressed the action button to open up the dock, the user should press and hold on any of the app widgets. Now it will be possible to drag it up or down the order of apps.
- Ejecting Water: The second series of Apple Watch is waterproof. The watch includes an eject mode which helps to get rid of water lurking inside after the user has gone swimming. It is also possible to manually use this feature: to proceed, just swipe up from the main home screen to view the Apple Watch Control Center. Then look for the water droplet icon and next, press. You will be prompted to twist the Digital Crown to eject the water.
- Scribble a Message: Apple got rid of the Friends Circle for the second series of its watch. This decision means that Digital Touch was moved to Messages. On Apple Watch second series, if the user wants to scribble a note to a friend instead of dictating one or picking one of Apple’s pre-loaded responses, he or she should scroll down to the bottom of a message thread and hit the Scribble button.
- How to Take a Screenshot: Both the Apple Watch and the Series 2 can take screenshots. To perform the operation, the user must hold down the digital crown and the action button below it at the same time. Note that when the user takes a screenshot, images are saved to your camera roll on the paired iPhone. If the Apple Watch has been upgraded to watchOS 3 though, this feature is not set as default. In this case to enable screenshots, the user should go to the Watch companion app and then go to General. There the user will be able to toggle Enable Screenshots on or off.
- Unlocking Mac from Apple Watch: There is a way that the user can use the Apple Watch original and the Apple Watch Series 2 to skip typing in a password on your Mac to get access. Note also that if the user wants to pair the two devices together, he or she should make sure they are both signed into the same iCloud account. The next step is to head to the Mac (make sure it’s running macOS Sierra or later) and choose System Preferences. Under System Preferences, go to Security & Privacy, and then head to General. Here the user will be able to set the Apple Watch to unlock the Mac. The user should make sure two-factor authentication is enabled as well on the Mac (for this, the user must go to System Preferences > iCloud > Account Details > Security).
- How to Turn on Auto Pause During a Run: Like users can do it on their Samsung Gear S3, Apple also lets halt run tracking when the user gets interrupted or has to stop at a set of traffic lights. The user can also enable automatic run pausing simply by heading to the Apple Watch app on the iPhone, heading to the My Watch section and then selecting Workout. There the user will be able to toggle Running Auto Pause on.

Published by Krystal Key, on October 7, 2016 (“This is my first time using an Apple Watch, although not my first time using a smartwatch… and I really did fall in love with it, especially with this Series 2 model. But there were some things I missed about Android Wear, but this is definitely the best watch you can get for an iPhone”).
