Some of the first wave iWatch users have received the new Apple Watch. Most people are not familiar with the detailed functions of Apple Watch and here, several useful tips are collected to help you better use Apple Watch.
Turn on Power Reserve Mode Manually
Battery drain problem has been a common issue for all Apple products, including Apple Watch. Most people are concerned about battery drain fast when they don’t use it. Don’t worry, you can turn on Power Reserve Mode by yourself, which just display time. To do this, press and hold the side button, then slide the Power Reserve slider.
Find your iPhone with your Watch
When you want to use Apple Watch, you have to pair it with your iPhone or iPad. But what about when you cannot find your iPhone? Don’t worry. Apple Watch can also be used to find your iPhone. From your Watch face, swipe up to activate Glances, then visit the Settings glance. From here, tap the Ping iPhone button in blue to have it make a noise.
Mute alerts with your palm
If you have sound enabled on the Watch, you can keep it from annoying the outside world with notification sounds: If it goes off in a place you’d rather it not, you can cover the display with your hand for three seconds or more to instantly mute any new sounds. To turn this on, you’ll need to visit the Apple Watch app on your iPhone, then go to My Watch > Sounds & Haptics > Cover to Mute.
Hide watch apps
It’s going to be exciting at first to try out third-party apps on your Apple Watch, but those icons may quickly clutter up your device’s Home screen. To hide third-party apps, you can either touch and hold an app icon from the Home screen and press the red X next to it, or visit the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and show/hide apps from the My Watch section. Even though you’ve removed their Watch interfaces, those apps will remain installed on your iPhone unless you delete them from that device, as well.
Take a screenshot
Want to memorialize that Digital Touch drawing or Activity achievement? You can take a screenshot on your Apple Watch by quickly and simultaneously pressing both the side button and Digital Crown.
Force Apple Watch to restart
If your Watch is misbehaving, you can turn it off by pressing and holding the side button until you see the Power Off slider, then drag it across the screen. If your Watch is completely frozen, you can perform a force reboot by holding both the side button and Digital Crown for at least ten seconds, until you see the Apple logo.
