They used to call the pink gold "Rose Gold". Checking the current Apple Store site, they now seem to call both 'gold' & 'rose gold'… just 'gold'. I'd call that a naming fail. I just grabbed screenshots of two "gold" watches - see for yourself. You don't need to let the pink strap put you off, just photoshop one near the other & ...

I was surprised at just how bad the Milanese Loop band was at staying fastened, and couldn't explain why some people were having problems and others weren't. Reversing the band solved the problem for me. The band is reversible, in the sense that the side that is fixed and the side that is looped can be swapped. If you're having trouble with slippage, try ...

Apple has a setup guide for precisely this: Set up an Apple Watch for a family member Since watchOS 7, you can set up Apple Watch for a family member using a new/separate Apple ID joined to the same Family Sharing group as your primary Apple ID. Choose ‘Set Up for a Family Member’ when prompted in the Watch app to begin the setup process.

I was able to determine the button’s purpose through VoiceOver, which reads this button as “announce messages”.

It’s official, Apple published an article that to me explains the update had some problems and our devices may not fix themselves. It also warns of future data loss. I got bitten by the GPS bug and was not successful in fixing it by unpairing the watch, but I will follow this sequence later today once I close my rings :-) Looking closer at noise data - that'...

None of this data is sent as an iMessage or SMS. If I have a talk-only phone plan without texting, for example, would the location still be transmitted as part of the emergency call? If you have a talk only plan with no texting (do those still exist?), it won't be able to send GPS location data at all. How would it? "Talk Only" means just that - ...

Contacts.app in macOS 11 Big Sur (and the underlaying iCloud) now offers more differentiated date fields which address use cases like yours and more.

No. There is no quick charging feature on any of the Apple watches. As far as documentation goes, Apple rarely documents what it can’t do; so you’re not going to find anything official. However, with a little bit of research, we can posit as to why Apple’s watch is limited to 5W: physics. The Apple watch uses an inductive (wireless) charger that’s held ...

disclaimer: I recently released a new app that displays your (lifetime) Apple Health and workouts data. The app is called “Health Stats”. Health Stats is a free app (with a one-time premium in-app purchase) that allows you to easily view your health, activity and workout data from the Apple Health app. You can view this data for different date ranges such as:...

No, that's not possible. Any change wouldn't have come with the Watch Series 6 as such, but a change in watchOS 7 - but such a change has not been made.

The Apple Watch requires the user to have set a passcode in order to use Apple Pay with the watch. When you put the watch on, it will request a passcode. You can use Apple Pay only after you have entered the passcode. The Watch by default continuously monitors that it is still on your wrist - if you take it off, it locks itself again and requests the ...

As much as I understand your frustration, Apple mentions the limits in the small print at the bottom of https://www.apple.com/watch/: Blood Oxygen app measurements are not intended for medical use, including self-diagnosis or consultation with a doctor, and are only designed for general fitness and wellness purposes.

No watch face is allowed to update often when dimmed to save battery. You can make the watch face stay on for longer before dimming when turned on by tapping. Go to Watch settings on Apple Watch or the Watch app on iOS, choose General → Wake Screen and set On Tap: Wake for 70 Seconds.

I agree it is a bit disturbing but I can confirm that this is the new version of the Apple Watch Gold Aluminum Case since Apple Watch Series 3. Gold aluminium cases started changing with the Apple Watch Series 3 and we can slightly notice the difference on the website, it doesn't look "that gold" compared to Series 1 and 2. So yes, this is a gold ...

iPhone 8 supports iOS 14 which is compatible with watchOS 7, the latest OS available. Therefore all the features of the new watch will be available without compromise compared to a new iPhone. Your iPhone battery will not have any noticeable impact caused by an Apple Watch. Bluetooth is required for phone/watch communication, which can use some small amount ...

There is no technical constraint preventing an Apple Watch cellular from being used with a pre-paid plan. I have used an Apple Watch Cellular with pre-paid plan in India.

I think that you should approach situation in more generalized way. I don't think that requirement to interact with watch will improve your security. Why? If your roommate have access to your computer and to you while you are sleeping there is nothing that stops him/her interacting with your watch. Possible solutions as I see it (in no particular order): ...

This can occur when your keychain and account passwords go out of sync. The system may try to help you reconcile this if you log out, then log back into your account. You should get a prompt indicating the passwords don't match, and will be able to correct this.

Try unpairing the AirPods from the watch. To do this, on the watch go to settings -> Bluetooth click the "i" next to the AirPods and click unpair.

It appears that as of today (Oct 23, 2020), this is a known bug. Apple is aware of the issue but no GM fix has been issues yet. It's been reported that un-pairing/re-pairing the AW doesn't resolve the issue. There's a Watch and iPhone OS versions in beta right now, you can try installing one of those to see if it fixes the problem (installing beta OS's has ...

Note that there's no slot for a physical SIM card on the Apple Watch. You must add the SIM card to your iPhone. This can either be a physical SIM card, or a virtual SIM-card known as an eSIM. An eSIM usually takes the form of a letter or email containing a QR-code that you scan with the camera in your phone. If you have a recent iPhone, you can add both a ...

Just to close the loop here, yes, you can record audio on your Apple Watch while your iPhone is on an active call (on speaker phone). I do this all the time to supplement my notes from an important phone call with an audio recording… with the permission of the person on the other line, of course.

So - as a direct answer to your question - no, unfortunately it doesn't appear possible to do what you're asking. Now for a longer, more descriptive answer. After carrying out some research and performing some of my own tests, it unfortunatley doesn't appear that it's possible to simply remove a single exercise whilst also deleting the corresponding award ...

Wallpaper can't be changed for the Infograph Watch face. Even watchOS 7, currently in beta testing, doesn't allow this. I suggest you provide feedback directly to Apple and indicate you want this ability: https://www.apple.com/feedback/watch.html

This isn't really a solution as much as an answer. My girlfriend has a Series 4 LTE+GPS model on Verizon and a friend of mine has a Series 3 LTE+GPS model on Sprint. I saw them over the last few days and they were kind enough to let me test things. Both Apple Watches behaved in the same way. Sending / receiving SMS while using a cellular connection was ...

To troubleshoot, I would follow the restore steps: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204505 It mentions that bluetooth should be on on the phone and you should be connected to WiFi so if you can turn both of those on on both devices (might be hard on watch unless it prompts you) but if you can get the same WiFi router as the last time it booted, it might ...

WatchOS apps are a complex hybrid since they started as all being dependent upon iOS and now they can be independent or dependent. You need to get both sides synced in some cases, hence the message to update iOS when watchOS is in play with one or more paired watches. https://developer.apple.com/documentation/watchkit/creating_independent_watchos_apps/ To ...

I get far better readings from my watch during running and cycling than I did with either Garmin or Wahoo chest sensors. However, since 2017 I’ve not even tried a chest sensor, so perhaps they have improved faster than the Apple Watch sensor has. The watch is less likely to slip for me with the Velcro band than the elastomer band, but even the elastomer ...
