Messages on your Watch

With a smart watch, it's never been easier to talk while you walk. You can quickly and easily view incoming messages on your watch and send replies, and you won't even need to take out your phone. It's perfect for when you are out and about. You can also manage your notifications so that you only see important updates that matter to you.

Available screens and settings may vary by provider, phone, or watch.

Reply to a Message

If you want to take a break from your jog and send a quick message to a friend, you can do that quickly and easily on your watch. Just navigate to and touch the message you want to reply to. Then, swipe to and touch a Quick message as a response.

If you prefer to create your own response, there are many methods to choose from: 

  • Speaker: Speak into your watch and then touch SEND.

  • Emoji: Select an emoji as your response.

  • Text: Write letters on the watch face. Written letters will be converted into text.

  • Edit responses: Create or edit Quick messages by writing letters on the watch face. Written letters will be converted into text.

Call-Decline Messages

Sometimes, you receive a phone call at the worst possible time and can't pick up. With your watch, you can let them know you're busy with a quick swipe.

When receiving a call on your watch, swipe up from the bottom of the watch face. Several replies, such as "I can't talk right now", will appear. Touch the message you would like to decline the call with.
