How to take screenshot on Apple Watch

The Apple watch lets you take screenshot very easily that you can save with yourself or share it with someone. If you want to take screenshot of an app on your Apple Watch, or capture a software bug report, a conversation, or a game score, or want to show your circles how awesome is your customized Watch faces, there’s no need to photograph your watch screen with your iPhone.

Just like iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, the Apple Watch also comes with a built-in capability to take screenshots. And it’s as easy as pressing on a couple of buttons. Since the Watch is paired with your iPhone, so we’re not only going to talk about how to take screenshot on your Apple Watch, but also how you can find and share your screenshot from wither device.

How to take screenshot on Apple Watch

  1. Go to the screen you want to capture, and grip your Watch firmly.
  2. Press and hold the Side button on your Apple Watch, then immediately press and release the Digital Crown.

You can also click both the Digital Crown and Side buttons simultaneously, but some find it hard to press both buttons at once. If the screenshot has been taken successfully, the Apple Watch will give you a visual confirmation by flashing its screen.

How to find Apple Watch screenshot on your iPhone

Now that you have taken screenshot on your Apple Watch, you can find it on your iPhone. here is how to:

  1. Open the Photos app.
  2. You can find your screenshot at the bottom.
  3. If you’re in Albums, you can find your screenshots under Camera Roll or, under All Photos if you’re in iCloud Photo Library.

Screenshots taken on the Apple Watch are not stored on the Apple Watch itself, rather they are sent directly to the Photos app on the paired iPhone. If the Watch in not in range of your paired iPhone, or the iPhone is turned off, the taken screenshot(s) sticks around until the iPhone is in range again.

Apple Watch screenshots are relatively in low resolution – 216×290 for 42mm Watch and they look quite fuzzy and blurry. There’s no good solution to this problem, until Apple releases a higher resolution Watch.
