How to take a Screenshot on the Apple Watch

The Apple Watch is the newest addition to the Apple gadget Family and a real helper in daily life, as I learned during my first week with the new Digital Watch. You can do so many things, without having your iPhone to take out of your Bag. There is also one Feature I discovered by accident, the Function of Taking Screenshots on the Apple Watch. Once I discovered it’s really easy if you want to take screenshots of whats currently happening on your Watch, instead of photographing it. Find the constructions below.

How to take a Screenshot on the Apple Watch

First of all you need, for sure, an Apple Watch. Here it doesn’t matter if its a Sport or the Gold edition, all are technically the same. So, if you want to take a Screenshot you have to press the little wheel first, and for a longer time, and then just push the button right below it for a little second. The Screenshot worked if the display flashes for a tiny moment, if not, try again until it does.
You find the Screenshots, taken on your Apple Watch, within seconds on your connected iPhones in the Photo Libary (or on your iCloud or Dropbox, if you have enabled these functions.)

Happy Screenshoting, more on the Apple Watch will follow soon!

    Honest question, do you still have your Apple Watch?

      Actually, no, I don’t! I was just too annoyed by the constant charging and my ankle started to get irritated by the watch and the wristband.. so I’m again sporting my simple Casio watch ūüôā
