With Apple Watch, it’s pretty simple to keep track of and respond to messages and emails. Especially when I’m on the go and don’t have much time for detailed answers, I choose from a handful of default answers to answer. Interestingly, watchOS also provides the ability to customize default email/message replies on Apple Watch so you can record your feedback immediately. Let me show you how it works!

Whenever a new email or message arrives, Apple Watch displays a selection of options for you to respond quickly. For example, you can choose to reply using fun emojis, doodles, voice dictation, or reply with the preset replies without having to dig into your iPhone.

1. Launch Watch app on your iPhone.

2. Now make sure My watch the tab is selected.

3. Next, scroll down and choose Mail/Messages. The process for mail and message responses is the same. So, you can choose the preferred option according to your needs. In this guide, I’m going to select Mail.
