Take a screenshot on your Apple Watch

Here are the instructions. If you want to take a screenshot under watchOS and then call it up / view it, this is very easy and quick with these two steps:

  • Simultaneously press the crown (Digital Crown) of the Apple Watch and its side button (see picture). A screenshot was successfully created when the display of the Smartwatch briefly flashes or flashes.
  • To call up the picture, open the on the iPhone Photos App and choose there Albums You can find the Apple Watch screenshot in Screenshots.

Important: screenshot function is often deactivated!

On my Apple Watch Series 3, the screenshot function was deactivated at the factory. That means, my pressing the crown and side button had no effect. To enable the screenshots, you must first activate them in the watch app on the iPhone. To do this, go to the app and click on "General". Then you scroll down until you find the option "Enable screenshots". If this is gray and not green, you simply slide the switch to the right so that it is activated.

In most cases (from watchOS 4) you first have to activate the screenshots in the watch app on the iPhone.

Some users may have complained that too often they accidentally accidentally take a screenshot when they buckle their hand. Then it can happen that the two buttons are pressed and a screenshot is triggered. Since very few people need this function, Apple probably decided to deactivate the screenshots initially.
