The watch reimagined.
It delivers important information when and where you need it. Helps you easily perform everyday tasks in seconds. Instantly connects you to the people and things you care about most. All while keeping precise time. Yes, it’s a watch. But unlike any you’ve ever imagined.
Notifications. You’ll know it when you feel it.
Because Apple Watch sits on your wrist, it can give you a gentle tap the instant you receive an alert. So you can get the same notifications you do on your iPhone — or just the ones you care about most — more immediately and conveniently.
Apple Pay. Fast, safe, and always right there.
Having Apple Pay on your watch is remarkably convenient. Want to buy a bottle of water while you’re out for a run? No problem. Just double-click the side button and hold the display up to the contactless reader. A gentle tap and beep confirm your payment information was sent. You never reveal your name, card number, or security code to the cashier, so your private information stays private.
Stay in touch like never before.
You won’t just send and receive messages, calls, and mail more easily and efficiently. You’ll express yourself in unique, fun, and more personal ways. Communicating with Apple Watch is discreet, sophisticated, and nuanced — a whole new way to connect with others.
Messages, calls, and mail. Designed for your wrist.
The ways you communicate on your iPhone are even more immediate on Apple Watch. To read a message or email, just raise your wrist. Then reply instantly by dictating or choosing a preset or customized response. You can take a quick phone call using the built-in speaker and microphone. Or for longer conversations, transfer the call to your iPhone.
At its heart, an incredibly precise timepiece.
High-quality watches have long been defined by their ability to keep unfailingly accurate time, and Apple Watch is no exception. In conjunction with your iPhone, it keeps time to within 50 milliseconds of the definitive global time standard. It even lets you customize your watch face to present time in a more meaningful, personal context that’s relevant to your life and schedule.
Watch faces. Millions of ways to see time.
A device you wear is unlike one you put in your bag or pocket, because it makes a bigger statement about your personal style. Apple Watch faces are designed to be extensively customizable, from the way they look to how they function. So you can combine different styles, colors, and complications to create a watch face that’s perfect for you.
Complications. Made simple.
Many watches include a few specialized functions — known in watchmaking as complications — that go beyond telling the time. But Apple Watch comes with a full range. Some are traditional, like moon phases or sunrises and sunsets. And some are more modern, like stock quotes, weather reports, and a daily activity tracker. You can even put information from your favorite App Store apps on your watch face.
Glances. Just the right amount of information, right when you want it.
Glances are scannable summaries of the information you seek out most frequently. To access them, simply swipe up from your watch face. You’ll instantly be able to do things like see what’s next on your calendar or find your location on a map. Tap any Glance to open its corresponding app.
Innovation in every interaction.
Apple Watch is unlike any device we’ve ever made. But we wanted interacting with it to be just as easy and intuitive as using your iPhone or working on a Mac. So we invented all-new ways to select, navigate, and input that are ideally suited to a smaller device worn on the wrist. The result is an experience that’s both unique to Apple Watch and quintessentially Apple.
Digital Crown. A modern twist on a traditional feature.
On mechanical watches, the crown has historically been used to set the time and wind the mainspring. We reimagined it as a versatile tool that answers the fundamental challenge of how to navigate on a small display. You can turn the Digital Crown to zoom in and out of photos, scroll through lists, and make selections, all without obstructing your view. With Time Travel, turning the Digital Crown lets you scroll through your complications to see what’s happening — or what’s already happened — yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Pressing it returns you to the present time.
