You don’t need to be using a Disney face to get your Apple Watch to tell you the time. Using a simple tap gesture, you can have the time read to you while using any watch face. Find out how in this Apple Watch pro tip.
We all know that it’s possible to have Micky and Minnie Mouse tell you the time on Apple Watch with just a tap. But if you tap on other Apple Watch faces, you get … nothing. And yet, the same feature is available with any watch face.
What’s more, you don’t have to activate it or change any settings; you just have to know one simple gesture.
Get Apple Watch to tell you the time
That gesture is a two-fingered tap and hold. You can use it on any face to have Siri read out the time. Hold down your fingers for around two seconds; you can lift them when Siri starts speaking. And don’t press too hard.
Note that sounds must be enabled on your Watch for this to work. You won’t hear anything if your device is in silent mode.
