Recently, more and more apple technology users are turning their attention to smartwatches. If earlier we saw the Apple Watch extremely rarely, now almost every third can boast of a wearable device. Moreover, Apple has managed to overtake even mechanics in sales. At the same time, I cannot say that Apple Watch has an intuitive interface. Each time, if you need some kind of manipulation, you either have to go into the settings or look for the answer in the sources. Today I propose to talk about the basic functions of the watch and discuss how you can simplify your life by wearing this accessory.
The Apple Watch for me was the last fundamentally new gadget from Apple. Out of habit, I didn’t read any guides or tips, because I’m used to solving all things intuitively. Turn off the sound on the iPhone – there is a special rocker. Find the document you want on your iPad – Spotlight search does a great job of it. But with the Apple Watch, things are a little different.
How to disable Always on display
The first problem that I personally encountered was that the Apple Watch prevented me from sleeping. As soon as I finished all my household chores, I turned off the light, I went to bed, when the annoying Always On immediately begins to glare into my eyes with a bright light. In the end, I decided that I would disable the function through the settings using this instruction. You need:
- Unlock Apple Watch.
- Go to Settings.
- Next Screen and brightness.
- Then find the Always on option, click on it.
- Then you need to turn off the toggle switch opposite Always on.
To my shame I want to say that this went on for about half a year. Exactly until the moment I learned about a special sleep mode that can be activated in the control room. For this you need:
- Swipe up from bottom to top.
- Go to Universal Access.
- Click on the month icon.
- Then select the item Sleep.
How to download music to Apple Watch
I love the watch for being able to work without a smartphone. I went for a run – I left my phone at home, and my music and running app inside my watch. The beauty. But to download music to Apple Watch, you have to sweat before training. I tell you, this is not an easy task. The algorithm is as follows:
- Charge Apple Watch.
- Next, take your iPhone.
- Go to the Watch app.
- Find the Music section.
- Click Add Music.
- Select and go to the playlist or album you want to download.
- Tap on the icon in the upper right corner.
- Repeat the procedure.
Considering that most of us only add a couple of songs from the entire album, it’s much cooler to create separate playlists For workout or When sad and move songs to Apple Watch at once. Although, to be honest, I still am not used to this.
How to change the watch face on Apple Watch
Fools who buy their watches for the first time think that they will change straps and dials several times a week. But only the wise understands: the straps are changed every two months, and the dials even less often. Nevertheless, the function is important, because otherwise the watch will quickly get bored.
You can view all available watch faces or replace one with another in the Watch app on iPhone. After adding a few solutions to your liking, you can quickly switch between them right from the clock:
- Press and hold the display for a couple of seconds.
- Swipe left or right to select the watch face that interests you.
- Then click Change.
- Using the same swipes, select the detail you are interested in.
- Use the Digital Crown to select what you want.
- Then press the wheel and the dial will lock.
Personally, I always change the dials for a specific strap. And if I’m tired, I change both. But there are also nuances here. You can’t buy a lot of original straps. Fortunately, there is AliExpress. We have made a selection with cool solutions more than once, so welcome.
How to add a card to Apple Watch
In the modern world, most users have long forgotten about plastic cards. Agree, is it much more convenient to pay by phone? He took it out, attached it, ready. So, now it will be the same, only right on the wrist.
To link your card to Apple Pay, you need:
- Open the Apple Watch app on iPhone.
- Select Wallet and Apple Pay.
- If you already have cards on iPhone, tap Add next to the card you want and enter the CVV code.
- If you want to add a new one, click Add Card and follow the instructions on the screen.
Please be aware that the bank may require you to take some steps to verify your identity. This is usually done either via SMS or via the bank’s app.
It is clear that these are far from all the Apple Watch features that are available to the user. In the past, we have already told you about the Activity and Health app, shared ways to increase autonomy, and much more. Take a look, it will be interesting.
