Making Messages Replies for Your Apple Watch

by Sarah Dobson on February 11, 2019

When you receive a message in the Messages app on your Apple Watch, you can scroll down to tap a preset reply, including “Hello!”, “No problem!”, and “See you soon”. What if these replies seldom cover what you want to say? Happily, you can create your own preset replies. Open the Watch app on your iPhone, tap Messages > Default Replies, and scroll down to tap Add Reply. Type your reply and tap Done. Your new reply appears at the bottom of the list on the Default Replies screen, which mirrors the order of replies on the watch. To manage your replies, tap Edit in the upper-right corner. You can tap a reply’s red delete button, tap a reply to revise it, or move a reply in the list by dragging its handle at the right—try moving your new custom reply to the top of the list!
