On your Apple Watch, go to the watch face you want to share;

Then indicate who you want to forward the record to by tapping the plus sign at the top right and selecting someone from the list. You can also say his / her name by pressing the Microphone button;

  1. Format and send message

Then format the message and turn the Digital Crown to scroll down. Then press “Send”.

The recipient will then receive a message that you have shared a Watch Face with her or him. The person can accept the watch face by tapping on it and then pressing “Add”.

Share watch faces from your iPhone
