Go to OSX Daily to read How to Enable and Use Raise to Speak on Apple Watch

Siri is better than ever on the Apple Watch, which means you might find yourself using it more and more to perform all sorts of tasks. But saying “Hey Siri” over and over may wear thin and grow old, or maybe it just feels a bit weird to you.

But with Raise to Speak, Apple has been able to fix that, removing the need for the wake phrase to be spoken before barking orders at Siri. Instead, you literally just have to raise your Apple Watch to your face to issue a command.

You’ll need to have an Apple Watch Series 3 or newer to take advantage of Raise to…

Go to OSX Daily to read How to Set Fitness Goals on Apple Watch

The Apple Watch has spent the last few years turning itself into the go-to wearable for people who like to keep tabs on their health. Whether it’s their heart rate, sleep pattern, or just how much they move, the Apple Watch can track it. But for many users, its bread and butter is in telling you when you’ve done enough exercise, and you can do that by setting fitness goals on the device.

Much of that functionality revolves around the Activity app and it comes pre-installed on all Apple Watches – and iPhones, for that matter. The app can keep tabs on your…

Go to OSX Daily to read How to Enable Irregular Heart Rhythm Notifications (AFib) on Apple Watch

Your Apple Watch has features designed to make it easier than ever to keep tabs on the health of your heart. It’s constantly checking your heart rate and it can alert you if something is amiss. It can do something similar to monitor for an irregular rhythm, too.

We’re going to show you how to enable heart rhythm notifications so that you will know if something isn’t quite right.

How to Mark Email as Read or Unread on Apple Watch

Go to OSX Daily to read How to Mark Email as Read or Unread on Apple Watch

The Apple Watch is great at doing all kinds of things, but it really comes into its own when used as a triage device for all the inbound communications everyone receives. We all get way too much email, and being able to deal with it on the go without pulling out our iPhones can be liberating. Although not as liberating as ditching email completely – but really, who can do that? Not us, so we rely on marking emails as read right from our wrists.

And sure, you can mark them as unread if that’s your style, too. Indeed, you can mark emails as read or unread…

How to Force Quit Apps on Apple Watch

Go to OSX Daily to read How to Force Quit Apps on Apple Watch

Ever had an Apple Watch app freeze or become unresponsive? if so, you may wish to force quit the Apple Watch app.

As far as the Apple Watch has come in recent years, some aspects of the device and apps can still be a little rough around the edges. Sometimes it can get itself a little tied up with whatever it was doing. That’s when it needs a metaphorical nudge. A poke in the ribs to wake it up. Or more accurately, it needs the troublesome app to be quit.

Simply pressing the Digital Crown is normally enough to quit an app on Apple Watch. But you might need to…

How to Make FaceTime Calls from Apple Watch

Go to OSX Daily to read How to Make FaceTime Calls from Apple Watch

Making FaceTime calls on your Apple Watch might not seem like something you would do, especially considering there’s no camera built into it (yet anyway).
