  • Tap the Share arrow
  • Choose whether you want to share by text message or email
  • Send your watch face The recipient will receive a link to the watch face that you sent. When they click that link on their iPhone or Apple Watch, they will be able to add it to their face gallery.

Unlock your Mac

One of the most useful Apple Watch tips if you have an Apple ecosystem. Apple’s unique device synchronisation was introduced with watchOS 3 and macOS Sierra. You may now use your Apple Watch to unlock your Mac without the need for a password. Ensure your devices are both linked to the same iCloud account. Set up a passcode on your watch if you haven’t already. On your Mac, go through the following settings: Under System Preferences, go to Security & Privacy > General. Allowing your Apple Watch to unlock your Mac should be checked.

Use the Flashlight

Apple Watch has a very useful flashlight built-in. Swipe up to reveal Control Center and tap on the Flashlight icon. You can swipe between multiple modes: plain white, flashing white and emergency red.

Make vibrations stronger

You may not notice some notifications simply because the haptic (buzz) is not loud enough. This is especially true if you wear your Apple Watch band loosely. To counteract this, you can enable ‘Prominent Haptic,’ which will pre-announce certain frequent warnings via a prominent haptic when enabled. To enable this, head to the Apple Watch’s Settings app > Sounds & Haptics > Scroll down to the Haptics section > Select Prominent from the drop-down menu.

Apple Watch Tip: Use Shazam Automatically and Never Miss a Song

Use Shazam Automatically Like Android, Apple also uses third party apps to create a plethora of cool features for your new device, and some of those features were delivered to your new watch by the Shazam application.Sometimes, when you hear a great song, you just don’t want to go through the effort of unlocking your phone and opening up Shazam to find out.You can set up Shazam to constantly listen to your environment. In this mode, it will keep track of all the songs that were playing in your environment throughout the day. To activate this feature open Shazam on your Watch and press the force touch button to bring up a menu option. Then select the option “Auto-Start Shazam” which allows the application to listen to your environment, detect songs automatically and curate them into a Shazam playlist that can then be exported to Spotify for easy listening.This might use a lot of your battery power but you’ll never miss a song again.

Translate Languages Using Siri

You no longer need to use your iPhone to quickly translate languages as you can do it using Siri on your Apple Watch as well. You can quickly trigger Siri and ask for language conversion. Opt for the Apple Watch’s microphone to dictate words and sentences and ask Siri to convert it to another language (from the set of supported languages). As of now, Siri on Apple Watch supports 10 languages including Spanish, English, Japanese, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian.

Wear your Apple Watch the right way

How should I wear my Apple Watch comfortably? The answer to this question is that all the sensors present at the bottom of your smartwatch should be in contact with your skin. So, the watch should be a snug fit when you wear it. If it’s not a solo loop, you may loosen it a little when you’re not doing any exercise or workout.

Make your watch more accessible

On the Apple Watch, you can customise a variety of accessibility aspects, including how it responds to your input. Tap on the My Watch tab > Accessibility in the Apple Watch app for iPhone. In these settings, for example, you’ll be able to run on Bold Text and Zoom.
