Your Apple Watch is more than just a timepiece. You can use it to listen to podcasts and audiobooks, track your workouts, make phone calls, and even pay for things using Apple Pay. It’s an incredible piece of technology that’s always nearby and is convenient to use. But learning how to customize your Apple Watch and make it your own can take a little time. Here are some helpful tips to personalize your Apple Watch from Trademore.
While the Apple Watch is incredibly versatile, it is, first and foremost, a watch. One of the first steps you’ll take to customize your Apple Watch is to pick a watch face that works for you. There are over 40 pre-set watch faces to choose from that tell the time via a digital or analog clock and might integrate other information like your personal activity, soothing animations, or personal photos.
Changing the watch face on your Apple Watch is simple. From the watch face, you’ll swipe left or right from one edge of the screen to the other edge. Keep swiping until you land on the face you want to use.
If you’d prefer to truly customize the watch face, here are the steps you should follow:
There are lots and lots of apps available for the Apple Watch; they range from personal health and wellness to productivity to finance and entertainment. Like the iPhone and iPad, the Apple Watch allows the user to reorganize the apps at will. You can view the applications on your watch in two different formats: grid view and list view. When looking at the apps you have in list view, they will always be in alphabetical order, no matter what. In grid view, you can rearrange them in any way you like. Follow these steps to learn how to edit the layout of the apps on your Apple Watch while in grid view:
If you’d like to remove an app from your Apple Watch, you can do so from either list view or from grid view. In the list view, swipe left on an app and then tap the image of the trashcan to remove it. In the grid view, tap and hold an app icon until an X appears; tap the X to remove the app from your Apple Watch. In either case, if the apps on your Apple Watch are paired with your iPhone, they will remain paired until you delete it from your iPhone as well.
The Apple Watch is equipped with an Activity app that can count your steps, keep track of your daily exercise, and encourage you to move around. The app comes with some presets that may not work for you and your lifestyle, so you may want to update your exercise and move goals to better customize your Apple Watch. Here’s how:
The band on your Apple Watch might be the most obvious expression of customization. So, when you’re thinking about how to personalize your Apple Watch, choosing a watch band that matches your personal style is key.
