Set Up Ac­tiv­ity and Work­out Apps

There are two fit­ness-re­lated apps on your Ap­ple Watch: the Ac­tiv­ity app and Work­out app. To set up the Ac­tiv­ity app, open it and tap Get Started. En­ter your per­sonal in­for­ma­tion, turn the dial to set it, and then tap Start Mov­ing. To record an ex­er­cise ses­sion, open the Work­out app and then se­lect your ac­tiv­ity. Swipe left or right to choose a goal and then use the Dig­i­tal Crown to set a num­ber.

To view your daily progress, launch the Ac­tiv­ity app and swipe through your var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties. To see your progress over a longer pe­riod of time, launch the Ac­tiv­ity app on your iPhone. Cus­tom­ize Your Watch Face

Con­trol what your Ap­ple Watch looks like and in­cor­po­rate the func­tions that will be most use­ful to you. To be­gin cus­tomiz­ing your watch, sim­ply press and hold the cur­rent watch face to see a sidescrolling list of your choices, from clas­sic stop­watch faces to ones fea­tur­ing blos­soms and but­ter­flies that come to life when you lift your wrist. A Cus­tom­ize but­ton ap­pears be­low watch faces that lets you choose what in­for­ma­tion, color, or vis­ual you wish to in­clude. Tap the area you wish to cus­tom­ize, and then scroll through the op­tions us­ing the dig­i­tal crown.

You prob­a­bly knew that you could share your lo­ca­tion with your friends and fam­ily with your iPhone, but there's an even eas­ier way to send your lo­ca­tion to them us­ing the Ap­ple Watch. To share your lo­ca­tion, raise your wrist to wake up your Ap­ple Watch and press the Dig­i­tal Crown. Tap on the Mes­sages app and open an ex­ist­ing mes­sage. If you're start­ing a new one, you'll need to send a text first and then open the ex­ist­ing mes­sage. Use Force Touch to re­veal the fol­low­ing op­tions: Re­ply, De­tails, and Send Lo­ca­tion. Tap Send Lo­ca­tion. Your iPhone's cur­rent GPS lo­ca­tion will then be sent to your re­cip­i­ent. Lo­cate Your Mis­placed iPhone

Are you in the habit of los­ing your iPhone in the couch cush­ions? Did your tod­dler wan­der off with your phone only to reap­pear a few min­utes later empty handed? Good news—your Ap­ple Watch can help you find your mis­placed iPhone as long as it's in range of your Ap­ple Watch.

To ping your iPhone, first ac­ti­vate your Ap­ple Watch and swipe up on the watch face to open Glances. Then swipe through your glances un­til you come to the Set­tings glance. Tap the Ping iPhone but­ton and your iPhone will emit a loud ping. Fol­low the sound to­ward your miss­ing phone.
