If you have an Apple Watch, then you know the joy of having a device that can accompany you everywhere. You can set up fitness goals and track them from your wrist. You can also use it to check emails, texts, and other notifications without taking out your phone.
Here, we will explore useful Apple Watch 6 tips and tricks that will help make your smartwatch more efficient!
Siri Wrist Motion Activation
Do you use the Siri commands via the Apple Watch? The Series 6 has a new feature for this, you lift your wrist at any time and give your Siri command without having to say “Hey Siri.” With the wrist motion, Siri will automatically know it’s all right to listen. You do not need to unlock the Watch as you give your commands or ask questions. It’s so easy.
Fast-charging support for high-wattage chargers has finally been offered. Now you can speed things up for your Watch. To take advantage of this fast charging, use the 10-watt charger brought alongside the Apple Watch.
First, compared to past Watches, the always-on display is much brighter. Apple must have done this on purpose to make things easier to see at a glance. Surprisingly, you need not do anything to enable this, and you enjoy it. Second, there are direct control capabilities to the always-on display. You can also tap things for basic features without having to unlock the Watch. That means you can access your notification center, take a closer look at a message, and open up the Control Center, all at the moment.
