Friends Apple Watch

One of the primary features of the Apple Watch is the quick way in which it allows you to get in touch with friends. Only friends are allowed to use the Digital Touch feature on Apple Watch, and those added to your list of friends can also be quickly called or messaged using handy shortcuts.

On initial Apple Watch setup, up to 12 of your favorite contacts from your paired iPhone will automatically be added to your list of friends. If you don’t have any favorite contacts, or if you wish to change, remove or add contacts to your Friends list, then this Apple Watch tutorial is for you.

How to add friends to your Apple Watch

Step 1: Open the Apple Watch app on your paired iPhone
Step 2: Tap My Watch
Step 3: Tap Friends
Step 4: Tap Add Friend
Step 5: Tap the contact that you wish to add

How to remove friends from your Apple Watch

Remove Friend

Step 1: Open the Apple Watch app on your paired iPhone
Step 2: Tap My Watch
Step 3: Tap Friends
Step 4: Swipe left on the friend that you wish to delete
Step 5: Tap the Remove button

How to reorder your Apple Watch friends

Apple Watch Move Friends

Step 1: Open the Apple Watch app on your paired iPhone
Step 2: Tap My Watch
Step 3: Tap Friends
Step 4: Tap the Edit button in the upper right-hand corner
Step 5: Use the drag handles to reorder the contacts as desired
Step 6: Tap Done in the upper right-hand corner once finished

It’s important to configure and curate your list of friends with care. Since this is by far the quickest way to reach out to a contact, and the only way to use Digital Touch with contacts, you’ll want to think about who you add to your list of friends.
