How To Take Screenshots On Apple Watch

Taking screenshots on Apple Watch is super simple, just like with screenshots on the iPhone and iPad. Here’s what you have to do:

  1. Navigate to the screen you’d like to take a screenshot of
  2. Now you have to press down on the digital crown and button on the side of your Apple Watch at the same time. (Be careful not to just press the digital crown; it’ll open up Siri instead.)
  3. Once you’ve taken your screenshot you’ll hear a shutter sound similar to when you take screenshots on iPhone, and the screen will flicker.
  4. Now to view your images, just head over to the Photos app on your iPhone and that’s it!
