VoiceOver is a gesture-based screen reader that uses the speaker on Apple Watch. It tells you everything that’s happening on the screen and helps you navigate it, without the need to see it. VoiceOver on Apple Watch is compatible with built-in apps and is available in more than 35 languages. And now when you turn on Taptic Time, a series of distinct taps from the Taptic Engine can discreetly tell you what time it is. Just double-tap the display to feel hours and minutes, or triple-tap with one finger to feel only minutes. You can choose from three taptic styles: digits, terse and Morse code.
Activate Larger Dynamic Type to increase the text size for a range of Apple Watch apps, including Mail, Messages and Settings, to make it easier to read. You can also choose Bold Text to make the text heavier across built-in apps.
It’s easy to zoom in on your content by using the Digital Crown to move across the screen by rows. With magnification up to 15 times the native size, Zoom helps you enjoy all that Apple Watch has to offer.
If it’s easier to see the screen without colour, Apple Watch lets you enable greyscale onscreen. Once you set the filter, the settings apply system-wide, so you’ll see only shades of grey on the Home screen, apps and more.
Extra-Large Watch Face
Apple Watch has many different faces that you can change and customise. One of them has numbers that take up the entire screen to make it easier to view the time.
For features like alerts, Siri and Glances, you can increase the contrast on your Apple Watch screen by reducing the background transparency.
To make it easier to see whether a setting is on or off, you can have Apple Watch show an additional label on the on/off switch.
When you turn on Reduce Motion, some screen elements — such as the movement of icons on the Home screen — will be simpler and more directly associated with your navigation gestures.
