Responding to a message on Apple Watch is easy, but what if you want to send a new one?
It may not be quite as obvious, but sending a new message from your Apple Watch is just as simple as replying to one. To do this you'll use the built-in Messages app with your Apple Watch. You just have to start a new thread. Here's how!
How to send a new message on Apple Watch
- Launch the Messages app from the Home screen of your Apple Watch.
- Press firmly on the screen of your Apple Watch.
- Tap on New Message.
- Tap on Add Contact.
- By default, your recent contacts show up. You can choose one of those or tap on the Contacts button to jump to your address book and choose one.
- Dictate a message or add an animated emoji and then tap Send.
