So one of the newest features is really cool. And let's just say you receive a message on your watch, for example. And you hit that reply button. You can now use this qwerty keyboard to reply. And although it lets in is pretty tiny, it is still really good at predicting what it is you're trying to type. And if you don't like, that method, you can still use the swiping one to type out what it is you'd like to say. But overall it damn, that is a cool thing to have on your watch.

If that wasn't crazy enough that you can even activate this mouse cursor, which you navigate by rotating your wrist. This feature honestly blew my mind, and you definitely only have to try this one out for yourself.

But do make sure you activate it first within the watch settings under accessibility, then scroll down until you see Assistive Touch. Once you tap on that, you can just toggle it on, and you're pretty much good to go. So when you clenched twice, it activates assistive touch. When you pinch it basically navigates the watch, or when you clenched once it makes a selection. So you do kind of have to get familiar with the prompts, but you do start to remember them quite quickly. Now, if that isn't freaking cool, then I honestly don't what is? But either way, you guys definitely have to try this one out.
