How to tell if you have unseen Digital Touch messages on Apple Watch

How to tell if you have unseen Digital Touch messages on Apple Watch

Digital Touch lets you send taps, sketches, and even your heartbeat to anyone else also using an Apple Watch.

If you somehow miss, dismiss, or don't get the notification when a Digital Touch comes in, don't worry. Your Apple Watch saves them and will show when you have Digital Touches you haven't seen. Think of it like the indicator on an unread mail message, just for the Friend's interface. And they're easy to see... once you know where to look!

How to make on/off labels more visible on your Apple Watch

How to make on/off labels more visible on your Apple Watch

You can toggle a lot of settings from off to on and back again, including one that makes toggle state more visible.

By default on the Apple Watch, thanks to its iOS heritage, the difference between "on" and "off" for a lot of options in settings is little more than what side the switch it on and whether it's green or not. If that isn't accessible enough for you, you can make the toggles even more visible by — wait for it! — toggling on labels. That way you get a helpful O in off state and I in on state. It's especially useful if color alone isn't enough of a differentiator for you.

How to reduce transparency on your Apple Watch

Layers of gaussian blur and light and dark transparency can look great, but they can also make it harder for some people to read text and parse images.

For accessibility reasons, you can go into your Apple Watch settings and reduce the amount of transparency used in the interface. That'll make screens more opaque and everything more legible and understandable for anyone who finds the default transparency distracting or disorienting.

How to reduce motion on your Apple Watch

Animation can make an interface look slick and sleek but it can also make it hard for some people to use.

If you suffer from vertigo or any form of motion sickness and watching things slide and zoom around on your Apple Watch is causing you distress, don't worry. You can switch transitions to fades and otherwise reduce the amount of motion right in the accessibility settings.
