Apple Watch - How to Enable the Zoom Feature

October 2016

You find it difficult to operate the Apple Watch due to its small screen size? Then you have come to the right place. In this tutorial you will learn how to enable a small accessibility feature that will make your life much easier.

You can enable the Zoom feature from the Apple Watch settings; go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Zoom. Toggle Zoom on. Alternatively you can enable this feature using the Apple Watch app installed on the paired iPhone. Open the Apple Watch app > My Watch > General > Accessibility > Zoom and toggle the Zoom switch on. You can also adjust the maximum zoom level (up to x15) for your Apple Watch.

Double-tap your screen with two fingers to enable Zoom and from there use the digital crown to adjust the zoom level. You can also configure the accessibility shortcut (triple click on digital crown) of your Apple Watch to work with the Zoom feature. Open the Apple Watch app > My Watch > General > Accessibility. Scroll to the bottom of the page, tap on Accessibility shortcut > Zoom.
