Can you call using Apple Watch?

Calling by smart watches is already a reality

Before buying an expensive device from the world-famous brand of many people, the question interests, and can you call by Apple Watch? This article will tell you about this feature, as well as help you figure out how to receive incoming calls, and, directly, to make them.

The pluses of calling by Apple Watch

Making calls with the help of Apple Watch has a number of undoubted advantages to be talked about:

  • Voice control — thanks to modern technologies that were used during the development of Apple Watch, you can choose a contact and call using a voice command.
  • Switching to iPhone — if for some reason you are not comfortable talking on Apple Watch, you can always switch the call to your iPhone, which is an indisputable plus.
  • Convenience — doing your daily business you don`t need to be distracted in search of your phone in an apartment or house, because you can make a call directly through your smart-watches. It should be said that during calls through Apple Watch you will be very unaccustomed to talk.

In addition, if you are in a public place, then because of the weak dynamics, it will be difficult for you to disassemble the speech of the interlocutor. Being in an office, cafe or shopping center is not always convenient to talk through Apple Watch, as some topics in conversations can be too personal. So, let’s figure out how to make calls through Apple Watch.

Incoming call

Who could imagine that a conventional wristwatch would be enough to replace the size of smartphones and tablets? Synchronizing iWatch with iPhone, when seeing an incoming call, an extensive selection of actions opens:

  • To do this, you need to click on the appeared green button with the phone inside.
  • It is necessary to press the red button. In this case, you will be forwarded to voicemail.
  • Reply to iPhone. You can talk on the smartphone.
  • Send a template message.
  • Cover the screen for a few seconds with your hand, which will automatically reset the call.
  • After that, it will be offered to activate the silent mode. If the call was cleared, a notification with the message left will come when the smart clock is unlocked. If this didn`t happen, you can read the record through the Voice Mail application in the Phone tab.

Reply using iPhone when calling iWatch

In order to activate the function of mute with the palm of your hand (Cover to Mute), you need to do the following:

  • Open the Apple Watch application on the iPhone;
  • Select «Sounds and Haptics» in the menu;
  • Move the «Cover to Mute» switch to the «On» position.

Unlike the iPhone, Apple Watch doesn`t have the ability to install special ringtones. However, if desired, the user can enable and disable sound and tactile notifications in the smart clock. By default, Apple Watch settings reflect the settings of your smartphone, but you can change them using the Apple Watch application for iPhone.

As you can see, receiving calls on the Apple Watch device is very easy and convenient, but it’s best to use wireless headphones Powerbeats!

Outgoing call

Using smart watches, you can also make calls to certain numbers. Unfortunately, calls to contacts that are exclusively on the «favorites» list are still available. You can edit it on the iPhone. So, to make a call, you need to do the following:

Press the button on the side, located below the wheel of the scroll (Digital Crown). Select the contact by turning the dial. Use the button on which the phone is shown.

Instead of the conclusion

Talking with the help of Apple Watch is initially unusual, but the addiction comes quickly. This development is still relatively new, so the owners expect the improvements in the work in the near future. In the meantime, you can give some tips:

  • To enable the possibility of delaying the call by hand, you need to go into the iWatch application on the iPhone and move the slider in the special tab «Sounds and communication».
  • To completely disable notifications in the same application, go to the «Ringtone» block, where the slider will be similarly located (in the new firmware in the «Customize» section).

    I am using Iphone starting with model Iphone 4. But bought apple watch only one month ago. Thanks for this post i now know more about functional possibilitis. Its really comfortable to use apple watch for incoming calls because its uneasy to take phone from pocket.
    Recently was at mountain with friends and one of my friend crashed his phone when he recieved incoming call, and at that time i understand how its great to be able to talk by apple watch.

    Personally, I am not sure yet that this is possible, because this watch is so small. I have a couple of friends who already have such accessories. They are amazed and they want to impress me with their uniqueness! After some time, I will see them soon, after their arrival from the USA, and I will probably be shocked by this new gadget. If everything is as it really is, I will gladly buy this accessory. ;-)

    I bought the watch about three months ago. I haven’t fully figured out the features yet, but the most important thing is that I was very happy with the ability to make calls. My watch is always with me, very convenient and always on time to answer the necessary call. You don’t need to search and get your phone out. The call can be set to vibrate, and feel it on your hand when you call, but on the phone it is not felt or heard at all. I am very happy.
