How To: Add & Delete "Friends" on Your Apple Watch

Add & Delete "Friends" on Your Apple Watch

Accessing and getting in touch with your favorite contacts has never been easier thanks to the Friends feature on the Apple Watch.

How to Use the Friends List on Apple Watch

Using the side button from anywhere on the device, you can access your Friends list, where you'll see your contacts arranged in a circle. From here, you can quickly call, text, and even use Digital Touch (which can send heartbeats and drawings) with those that matter the most.

If you have contacts that you've favorited on your iPhone, those will automatically appear in your Friends list. But as someone that personally doesn't have any favorite contacts, no one appeared. So how do you manually add and delete contacts from your Friends list?

How to Manage Contacts from Your Friends List

On your iPhone, go to the Apple Watch app and scroll down to "Friends." From this page, add all of your favorite contacts (up to 12), which will be organized on your Apple Watch in clockwork-fashion.

Use "Edit" at the top right to shift the placement of the contacts, as well as delete them. You can also swipe left on a contact to get rid of it. Once you're done, just leave the app.

Now when you hit the side button to access your Friends list on the Apple Watch, you'll see all of the contacts you've added, in the order you placed them.

Stay tuned, as we'll be updating the site with guides on all the awesome features of the brand new Apple Watch. If you have any questions or issues you want answered, or want a walkthrough on something specific, be sure to let us know in the comments below.

Thanks, this is a good description of something that I did not find very intuitive on the Apple Watch and something that it took me a while to figure out.
