The Apple Watch is a feature-rich, powerful piece of hardware that can assist you in a variety of tasks. While using the smartwatch is very intuitive, there are some features that can only be discovered after diving deep into its settings and exploring it for months. Fortunately, we’ve done all of the legit work for you. Whether you want to explore a new or old watch, here are useful Apple Watch tips and tricks that will not only help you understand watchOS better but will also make your usage more convenient.

When you press the Apple Watch’s side button, the Dock displays the ten most recently used apps. However, you can have it display up to ten of your favorite apps instead. To accomplish this, first:
When it comes to customizing the watch face on the Apple Watch, the possibilities are limitless. You can add useful complications, change the colors, and share your watch face with others, among other things.
You can also make a watch face out of personal photographs! Your Apple Watch screen will display photos of your children, parents, pets, spouse, or anything else you want! It is uncomplicated. Simply follow the steps outlined here to create a beautiful and personalized watch face.
You can use the ‘Always On’ feature if you have an Apple Watch Series 5 or later. (By default, it is enabled.) However, if you prefer a bit more battery life, you can disable the Always-On display feature.
Do you find it difficult to quickly locate apps from the app bubble? Don’t worry; you can easily switch from this view to the list view, which lists all of your watch apps alphabetically.
The Apple Watch screen is small, and if you’re having trouble reading the text on it, here’s how to change the text size. Once you’ve done that, determining the contents of the watch display will become second nature.
Apple Watch displays app notifications on your wrist. However, you should never allow all apps to bombard you with notifications. This will unnecessarily waste your time while also draining your battery. Here’s how to turn off stock app notifications on your Apple Watch:
You’re aware that you can summon the voice assistant on your Apple Watch by pressing the Digital Crown or saying ‘Hey Siri.’ But did you know there is a third method in which you simply raise your wrist to your mouth and ask the question? To use it, simply enable the Raise to Speak option.
This is useful when you only want to use Siri on your Apple Watch and don’t want to accidentally activate it on your HomePod or other ‘Hey Siri’ enabled devices nearby, such as your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
Do you want to record what’s on your tiny Apple Watch screen? To take a screenshot, press the Digital Crown and the side button simultaneously. The image will be saved to the paired iPhone’s Photos app. This is turned off by default.
So, open the Settings app on your watch and enable General Screenshots.
If you own a Mac and an Apple Watch, unlocking your computer becomes second nature. All you have to do is approach the Mac while wearing the watch. Sure, there are some prerequisites that must be met first. Similarly, if your Mac is running macOS Catalina or later, you can approve payments and password authentications using your Apple Watch.
Do you need to take a group photo? Or do you simply want to photograph yourself from a distance? Place the iPhone correctly and use the Apple Watch to control the live viewfinder and camera shutter button!
Here’s how it works:
In a variety of countries, you can use your Apple Watch to pay in-store or online using Apple Pay. You can also use your Apple Watch to pay for metro, train, and bus rides!
Setting a quick timer directly on the Apple Watch is a godsend when cooking, doing laundry, or engaging in any other such activity. To do this, use your wearable to summon Siri and ask it to ‘Set a timer for 10 minutes.’
You can use the GMT watch face on Apple Watch Series 4 and later to keep track of two time zones. The inner ring displays the local time, while the outer ring displays the city time that you specify.
To do so, launch the Watch app on your iPhone and select Face Gallery. Tap GMT from the New menu in watchOS and ADD it to the watch.
Rotate the Digital Crown while on the GMT watch face to select the second time zone clock. Now, tap the checkmark icon to select a pre-selected city.
Alternatively, go to the World Clock section of the iPhone Clock app to add a city of your choice. Now, fill in the blanks with the name of the city. Following that, it will appear in the list of cities that have been added to the GMT watch face.
When you receive a call, press your hands together for 3 seconds to silence the tone. If this doesn’t work, open the Settings app on your Watch, go to Sound & Haptics, and make sure the Cover to Mute toggle is turned on.
I used to love setting my regular watch 5 minutes ahead. On the Apple Watch, I do the same thing. It aids in time management. When you advance your clock, your alarms, notifications, and other time-based settings remain unchanged. Only the reading on the watch face is in front of you. Neat!
Your Apple Watch is waterproof, but after a swim or rain, you should force the water out of its grills.
Have a non-responsive app or suspect that an unnecessary app is draining the battery of your watch? To quickly force quit apps on the Apple Watch, follow the steps below.
