How to Send Email from Your Apple Watch

Email is a fact of life, and you can't escape it on the Apple Watch. Receiving email on the Watch is easy enough, but as of watchOS 2 you can also send replies to emails. Here's how to stay in touch from your wrist.

1. Press the Digital Crown and Tap the Mail icon. 


2. Select the message you want to reply to.

3. Swipe down or turn the Digital Crown to scroll to the bottom of the screen and press Reply.

You'll have the option to dictate a response, respond with an emoji, scribble letters using watchOS 3's Scribble feature or choose from canned responses.

4. To send a dictated reply, tap on the microphone icon, dictate your response and tap Done.


5.To send an emoji reply, tap the emoji button and select the emoji you want to send.

6.To choose from a list of pre-written replies, scroll down and tap on the one you want to send.

7. Confirm your message and tap Send.

    "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!
