With WatchOS 3, you now can do a lot more with your Apple Watch including the ability to send messages from your watch using a cool Scribble feature.
Basically, the new Scribble feature allows you to write out a text for message, eliminating the need to dictate it as you always did before. If you are now using an Apple Watch running WatchOS 3, we will walk you through the steps to write a message using your Apple Watch

That’s it! These are some steps that help you make the most out of Apple’s personal assistant on your Watch.
