With Digital Touch, you can send sketches, taps, or even your heartbeat to your friend's Apple Watch.
You can send a Digital Touch from your Apple Watch to your friend's Apple Watch. You and your friend can follow these steps to get started:
- Make sure that your Apple Watch is paired to your iPhone. Digital Touch uses the phone number associated with your iPhone and the Apple ID you signed in with when you set up your Apple Watch.
- Add your contacts to Friends on your Apple Watch. When you pair your Apple Watch and iPhone, up to 12 of your favorite contacts will automatically appear in Friends on your Apple Watch. You can also manage your friends from the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.
- Send your friend a sketch, tap, or heartbeat. If you can send your friend a Digital Touch, you'll see after you select your friend.
Send a Digital Touch
Press the side button to see your friends, select someone using the Digital Crown, then tap their initials or picture. You'll only see if your friend has an Apple Watch.
If your friend recently paired their Apple Watch, you might need to wait an hour or more before you can send them a Digital Touch.
