How to Screen Shot the Apple Watch
The Apple Watch allows users to take a screen shot of what they see on the face of the device by using a similar mechanism to capture screen shots on an iPhone or iPad; you press two buttons at the same time.
For the Apple Watch, the buttons to press to take a screenshot are the two side buttons, the rotating digital crown, and the power button underneath it.
Press both the digital crown button and the side button at the same time to take a screenshot on Apple Watch
Just like other iOS devices, when a screenshot has taken the screen on Apple Watch will briefly flash indicating it was successful.
The Apple Watch screen shot image file will appear on the iPhone within the Photos app as part of the general camera roll album. Yes, you read that right, the screenshot from the Apple Watch will save to the iPhone that the Apple Watch is synced to, it will not be saved to the Watch itself.
Here is an example of a screenshot taken on Apple Watch, which was saved to iPhone:
Yes, that’s the full resolution of a screenshot taken on a 38mm Apple Watch. Screenshots taken on 42mm Apple Watch are slightly larger, but not by much. You’ll find the screenshots taken on Apple Watch are not going to appear as the highest quality thing in the world, partially because the resolution of the screen is significantly less than what is seen on retina iPhone displays, so don’t be surprised if it looks a little grainy or pixelated, and if you see it on a larger device, the screen shot will appear kind of small with a low resolution.
