Apple Watch User Guide

Apple Watch Digital Crown press

Introduced in 2014 and officially launched on April 24, 2015, Apple Watch marks Apple’s entrance in a brand new product category: wearables. As always, Apple was not first to market with this new product, but it appears the company is poised to become the one that redefines how we communicate, how we become more conscious about our health and fitness, and how technology can become even more personal.

If the user interface of Apple Watch can seem familiar to those who already use iOS devices such as iPhone, it is nonetheless a brand new experience that may or may not seem obvious. It introduces new buttons such as the Digital Crown, and new gestures such as Force Touch. It is a product that most people will have to learn how to use and get familiar with, hence this Apple Watch user guide.

Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be publishing a series of articles on how to use Apple Watch, covering all the aspects of the device, from hardware to software. In the meantime, we will be updating this page with links to our Apple Watch guides and tutorials, structuring the content in a simple and intuitive manner.

Please come back often to check our Apple Watch user guide, and make sure to share this page with friends and family. If there are specific aspects of Apple Watch you would like us to cover, please feel free to reach out to us.
