How to Use and Personalize Your Apple Watch

Change Text Size on Your Apple Watch

The Apple Watch does a great job displaying important information at a glance, but not everyone is going to have an easy time reading text on its tiny screen — especially if you have the smaller 38mm model. Fortunately, just like with the iPhone, you can easily change the Apple Watch's text size to better suit your eyes. Here's how to adjust text on your Apple Watch until it's just right.—Michael Andronico

1. Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.

2. Select Brightness & Text Size.

3. Use the second slider to adjust text size. The farther right you move the slider, the bigger the text will be on your Apple Watch.

4. You'll now see larger or smaller text in Apple Watch apps such as Messages and Mail.

    "For vegans who still appreciate the refined look of leather, the Etsy Minimalist and Zen Watch Strap may be just the ticket. Available in 38 mm or 42 mm, it's made of a tanned vegetable material… " Oh gosh, no! It's vegetable tanned leather, not "vegetable material." Not vegan. I think you might need an edit on this description.

    WAAAAAYYYY too many taps and defeats the whole purpose of the watch.

    Instead, rotate the Apple Watch up to activate it and use Siri and say:

    "Hey Siri. Send a text message to John Doe that says see how easy this is exclamation point you don't even have to touch the Apple Watch period cool comma huh question mark."

    Siri will launch the Message app, create a text to John Doe that reads "See how easy this is! You don't even have to touch the Apple Watch. Cool, huh?" The message will stay on the screen for about 30 seconds with the option to cancel. After that time, if you haven't canceled, the text message is sent.

    THAT'S the power of the Apple Watch!
