If you iPhone isn't within reach, you can use your Apple Watch to answer an incoming call.

Don't want to dig through a purse or pocket to grab your ringing (or vibrating) iPhone? The Apple Watch lets you do it in a single tap. Just raise your wrist! You can see who's calling and decide whether you want to answer it.

If you decide you don't want to answer the call, you can quickly mute it by placing your hand over your watch. If you do want to answer it, here's how:
