Apple Watch Series 5 : Complete Beginners Guide
Today I’m gonna be showing you a complete beginner’s guide to your brand new Apple watch series 5. We’re gonna start off with some of the first things that are unique to the series 5 itself. Then we’ll, be diving into an overall beginner’s guide for the Apple watch in general, so sit back.
Relax and we’re, going to show you how you can use your new Apple watch. Of course, one of the first things you’re gonna want to do with the new Apple watch. One of the big tips and tricks that we have to go in is to start looking at.
The variety of new watch faces that are exclusive to the brand new Apple watch series 5 and watch OS 6. That’s. What we’re gonna, be showing you now as some of these Apple watch watch faces and the complications that go into them.
The best customization that you can make, and I highly recommend going through and taking a look at what is possible with these new watch, faces right here in watch OS 6, your new Apple watch series 5 comes with a variety of new watch faces as well.
Of course, the first being this incredible Meridian face that has the multicolor obviously fades away when you’re, not looking at it as much you can see. It goes from that white to a darker color. Now what you can do is you can go ahead and customize.
You actually change the dial color itself right. You can also go in change from multicolor to red to orange. You can actually set up a certain type of color that you want all of your dials to be. I do like the multicolor, though I think it makes it pop.
It adds that extra edge. Then, of course you can go through and you can change the individual complications, obviously going through each of these and choosing which one you want. So you could choose the date.
You can absolutely choose view and UV index. You can even add voice memos, walkie talkie. Now another cool feature as well as you can go through, and you can actually add in not just on here for scroll through who we’re going through a lot of these.
But what we could do is we can actually add in the calculator and that way we can easily calculate tips like we showed you earlier right here from the watch face itself, so that’s. Another great way that you can add that to the complication.
Obviously, once you’re done just tap the digital crown, we can much more quickly access the calculator where we can calculate tips that’s. The first watch face you want to show you. Obviously the Meridian watch face right here on the Apple watch series: five brand-new to the Apple watch series five and watch OS six.
Is you now actually have the calculator app right here on your Apple watch? That wasn’t here before it. Now that’s, not necessarily a hidden feature, but the hidden feature is that you can now quickly calculate tips directly using your Apple watch in the calculator app so watch this let’s say you have a hundred and twenty five dollar Meal, you want to calculate a tip, just press that tip button right up here, and this is essentially the hidden feature and tip that you guys can use you see here.
It gives you the twenty percent tip. It tells you what the tip is. You can also change number of people to let’s say you wanted to decrease the tip a little bit. You can use the crown to do that or you can increase it.
If you had some good service, so you can see exactly how to tip people right here on the Apple watch and you can even divide the bill among multiple people. Let’s say you had three or four people there.
It’ll. Tell you how much each of you needs to pay. This is a great hidden feature right here in the Apple watch. It’s that tip icon just type in the number click tip, and then you can calculate a tip directly here from your Apple watch.
It’s that easy. We also have the new California watch face as well as you can see here. I really like this design. This is a nice blue design here with Roman numerals. So if you go in, obviously you can go ahead and customize it.
There’s. A variety of different ways you can set it up, you could set it up with numbers, you can obviously go through. You can set it up with different. You know types of alphabets that you can go through.
I do like kind of the classic style here. The California style we swipe through you can see that we can make it not just full screen, but also circular. Those are the two main options you have here and then from there.
You can of course, change the color there’s. A wide variety of different colors available a lot of them with a black background, but you also have a few of these with the navy blue the cream background.
I do like the navy, blue though so obviously can go through here and then you can change the specific complications like normal again. As you know, with the Apple watch, one of the best things is, you can change the variety of different complications.
You have right on here, so you can choose the ones that you want the most. You could really just customize it make it unique to you and that’s. What I recommend doing, obviously, when you first get this Apple watch right.
It’s going through and baking the complications exactly how you like them, because that’s, the most fun part. You can now view Safari websites directly from the Apple watch. This is really convenient when you’re, trying to ask Siri something so watch this salmon recipes and you can scroll through take a look at each of the recipes here.
But the new feature is you can actually click this open page button just like so and actually get to the web page itself right here on your Apple watch, so take a couple seconds just to load and as you can see, we now have the entire recipe From that web page of how to make salmon it’s that easy to go to a specific web page right here on your Apple watch.
Of course, we also have the numerals duo and, as you can see here, this is a nice kind of simplistic, blocky design very simplistic. Just with the dates you can obviously go in and customize this there’s, a few different ways that you can have it set up.
I like the main one in general and then you can obviously change the style. So you can see here there’s, a few different styles. I actually like this one where you have the top that’s actually filled in and the bottom isn’t, and then you can go through here.
You can also change the specific colors. Obviously customize make it unique to you and there you go. You can obviously customize this one as well. There’s, not as many customizations just because of what it is, but this is another great watch complication right here on your Apple watch.
I definitely recommend testing out the brand new voice recordings app right here on your Apple watch. You can actually now do voice memos directly from your Apple watch watch this all you have to do is tap the record button to record voice memos right here on your Apple watch and click stop and, as you can see, you can have all of the different Recordings that you do that you can playback you and send off two devices.
You can share it here and you can also delete as well, so that’s. The way that you can actually store voice, memos right here on your Apple watch. Of course, we also have the gradient Apple watch, face which I love, because, obviously, as the hands move, it changes where the gradient is.
I just love the simplicity of this. The way that it looks right. It’s, one of those things that is very simple yet elegant and obviously, if you click on it, you can go into the gradient itself. You can change.
The color obviously comes in a nice red by default, but there is a wide wide variety of different colors. Here I like some of these. Oh nice royal, blue color. You can go through. You can change the style right, so you can see that we have different ways that you can have the gradient, so you can either have the three gradients or less gradients like so then you can go through.
You can change it. You cannot just have it full screen, you could have it be circular right, so you can change how you want it designed and then obviously there’s, not complications in the full screen version.
But if you were to screw switch to the circular, you can actually add the complications around the watch face as well, so that’s. Important to remember, if you switch to the other version, you can add the extra complications.
I just love the way that this gradient one works. Let me know in the comments section below what your guys’s. Favorite watch face. Complications. Are I always love to hear from you guys and see what you guys like the best another new app for watch OS 6? Is the noise app, so this actually allows you to measure sound in your area and actually hear how loud the noise is.
That way, you can make sure that you’re, protecting your ears. You’re, staying away from dangerously loud noises that could damage your hearing. So this is a very unique extra app right here on your Apple watch.
Another great new watch face is the solar dial, where actually the center watch face moves around the watch face as the day goes on there’s a lot going on here, yet it still looks very elegant. You can obviously go through here and customize.
It your cell phone to wake it up there. There we go, you can go ahead and customize it yourself. You actually switch from an animal to a digital time as the part of the watch face of the complication that goes around.
So this is a good kind of middle-ground. I do like the analog better though so we’ll switch it back to analog here and then, of course, you can change all the various complications around the watch face as well.
I think this is a really great style. You can see here that this looks very fancy very complicated here yeah. It still has that elegant feel right. There’s a lot going on, but it also it looks great at the same time.

Of course, we also have the modular compact just like this. As you can see it’s, got the day view down below with the weather what its gonna look like. You also have at the top. Obviously your watch face itself.
You have a few different complications in here as well. There’s, a lot of different things. You can change, you can change it, of course, to digital or analog, and then, if you scroll through, you can see that we can change the color.
Obviously I like the one that has the white background, because I think it pops right kind of adds that extra element, then, of course you can go through and you can change the different complications down here.
You have kind of the wider complication which is interesting because you can actually set this up, not just for the weather each day, but maybe for the UV index each day right where the wind each day.
So there’s, a few of these different ones that you can do there’s also, some other ones as well like stocks right, different reminders. These widescreen complications that work really well right here in this modular compact watch face one of the first things you may want to do when you get your Apple watch is make sure that the text size and brightness that all meets your standards.
So you can see here you can actually change the brightness. The default brightness on your Apple watch to actually increase it even brighter right here in your settings. So you just open up your Apple watch app.
Then you’re gonna go to brightness and tech side. You can see here that you can actually increase the brightness, keep it at the normal rate or even decrease the brightness, and that might help save your battery life as well.
So this is up to you. One of the things that I like to do, though, is I did go ahead and increase that brightness just so, I can make sure I can always see my Apple watch, especially on a bright day. Now you can also increase or decrease the text size if you want so, as you can see, that’s, gonna actually increase the text size on your device.
You can even make it bold to make it a little bit easier to see as well that’s all right here in the brightness and text size settings of your Apple watch app on your iPhone one of the first things you’Re gonna want to try with the new Apple watch, is actually tapping the screen in order to get it to tell you the time so just tap with two fingers, and it will tell you the time 5:41 p.
m. just like so it’s. A really cool feature that they’ve, now added with the brand new Apple watch. You can have it to say the time whenever you want to hear it. Forty-One yeah just like that. So with your Apple watch and the screen always being on, that is a great thing, but what you can do is you can decide to hide.
Send of complications from your watch face right, and so, if we go here into your Apple watch and we go to brightness and text size, and then you can see here that we have always on the Apple watch face is always on that’s.
The watch itself and, of course you can obviously change. You know the brightness text size all of these settings right in here as well, that’s, something you’ll, probably want to customize. But what you could do is go in here and I’ll because you can see the watch face is always on, which is a good thing, but you might want to hide sensitive complications.
So if you choose hide sensitive complications, then data such as your calendar appointments your heart rate that could be hidden when you put your wrist down like that right, when you’re, not looking at it.
That way, other people can’t get catch a glimpse of your sensitive information. This is definitely a hidden feature. You’re gonna want to look into, especially if you’re concerned with somebody’s, seeing something that you don’t want them to see.
This next feature is a little more serious and I encourage everybody who is watching this right now to set this up just to be safe. This is emergency SOS, and hopefully none of you watching ever need to use this, but this could save you from a dangerous situation.
So I recommend everybody watching this right now to set up emergency SOS you’re gonna go into your Apple watch. App on your iPhone click on emergency SOS and, as you can see here, you want to make sure that you enable automatic dialing.
You want to turn this on. It might be off by default. You want to turn this on automatic dialing in order to call emergency services. If you press and hold the side button – and you also want to turn on fall detection so that Apple watch can automatically call emergency services if it detects that you fall now again, it will give you a slight warning beforehand, so it’ll, say Or do you really want to do that? Like you know, if you’re, if you’re conscious right, you can say: hey nope nope.
This is a false alarm, but if you’re unconscious, it will automatically call emergency services if you fall and you have the ability to hold the side button now. The reason that I recommend everybody watching this turn that on is think about that.
If you find yourself, hopefully you never do, but if you find yourself in a dangerous situation, all you have to do is press and hold on that side, button to call emergency services or if you take a fall and you can’t press and Hold that side button, the Apple watch will automatically detect that you fell and call emergency services on your behalf, so I really think it’s better to be safe than sorry.
That’s. Why? I recommend going here into your Apple watch settings going to emergency SOS and enabling both the automatic dialing by holding the side button and fall. Detection, hopefully never have to use this.
But I encourage all of you to set this up just in case just to be safe, its emergency, SOS right here for your Apple watch. Those are the first things you’re, going to want to do with your brand new Apple watch series.
5. Now we’re, going to transition into some footage. I shot on a previous Apple watch, showing you step-by-step, how every part of your Apple watch works from taking it out of the box to each individual component.
This is a comprehensive guide that I’m about to show you right now. First, we’re, going to show you how to connect your Apple watch to your iPhone. If you’ve already done this, you may skip on to the next chapter, all right.
So, first off you want to make sure that you have an iPhone running iOS 8.2 or later for these demonstration purposes. I’m using my old iPhone 5s. However, you can of course use your iPhone 6, 6 plus or even 5.
Now make sure that you have the Apple watch application installed on your phone. It should have Auto installed with the latest iOS update. Now, if you do not have the app go into the settings, go to general software update and make sure you’re up to date.
If not, you can download it install the latest iOS software right from this screen by clicking, download and install it will take a little while, so we recommend plugging it into your charger, while that happens alright.
So the next step is to go into your Apple watch and press and hold the side barton right here. So this is the side button, just press and hold and as you can see, you will see the Apple logo pop up while it’s.
Turning on once done, you’ll, be greeted by a screen that asks you to select your language, choose your language and then to start pairing, pick up your iPhone and swipe up to access the control center.
Once you’re in the control center, make sure you turn on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth after you’ve done that go into the Apple watch, app and click on start pairing. Now you want to click on start pairing on your Apple watch.
You’re, going to use the camera to locate your Apple watch to instantly and easily pair your Apple watch to your iPhone click setup as Apple watch. Now you’re going to choose on which wrist do you wear? The Apple watch? Choose left or right, depending on what your personal preference is, and it will calibrate and setup the Apple watch.
According to that preference, you’re, going to agree to the terms and conditions by clicking agree. Then you are going to enter your Apple ID password will come right back once I’ve done that now you’re, going to select whether or not you want to turn on location services.
Now this is very important. Just click! Ok! Siri click. Okay, Diagnostics. Do you want to send automatically diagnosis from your Apple watch? You can choose ok or no. So I’m. Going to choose automatically send and I’m going to click.
Ok now you can actually add an apple watch passcode from this screen to create a passcode click create passcode, but that will require a passcode on your Apple watch for the video purposes. I’m, not going to use a passcode, but you can of course, always go back and change the settings which we’ll, show you later on in the video now install available applications.
You’re, going to want to hit install all if you have a lot of applications that are functional with the Apple watch. I’m going to use choose later for now, because I’ll. Show you how to download the apps later on in the tutorial and the Apple watch is currently sinking and it’ll notify you once you are ready.
We’re gonna skip past this part once it completes your Apple watch is ready to go. Alright, let’s continue on to the next chapter, so you can learn the basics of the Apple watch when the Apple watch is completely powered off to turn the Apple watch on.
You need only press and hold the side button to see the Apple logo, which will inform you. The Apple watch is turning on to completely power off your Apple watch. You need only press and hold the side button, followed by sliding the power off toggle to turn on your Apple watch.
When it’s asleep, all you need to do is bring it up close to your face, or if that doesn’t work, say it’s in a different position. You can just tap to also wake up. The Apple watch then, to put the Apple watch to sleep.
You need only drop your wrist down and you can’t see it really well, but as you can see, the Apple watch is turned off. Now we’re, going to talk about some of the different components of the Apple watch.
Of course we have the display in the front, but we also have something very unique on the side here. This is the Apple watch, digital crown. Now this allows you to scroll and zoom in using the little slider on the side it acts kind of similarly to a regular watch knob.
Now, in addition to that, there is a home button that you can press this acts as the normal home button that you might have used on your iPhone. So here’s. How this works the home button, just by pressing the front, will allow you to go all the way back to your main area, where you’ll, see all of the different app icons.
You can also press it again to enter back into the clock face now. A single tap will enter you in and out of your application view and your clock face. A double tap will send you to the previous application that was open in my case.
Settings double tap again, go back to the app prior to that now you can actually press and hold to activate Siri like so. The side button also does some very important things on your Apple watch. One press of the side button will bring up your favorites, so you can scroll through them in order to contact them individually.
So say you have one favorite, you wanted to contact just on them and you can actually give them a call message or you can actually send your heartbeat or other pictures if they have an Apple watch as well.
You exit out of there using our home button. Now, if we double tap, we can access Apple pay. I don’t, have any card setup right now, but we & # 39. Ll. Show you how to do that later on in the tutorial and then, of course, pressing and holding will bring up the menu that allow you to power off your device.
You can hit cancel to cancel that action. One more thing to note: the Apple watch, doesn’t just respond to regular touches and taps. It also responds to something called force touch, which is when you press and hold more firmly on the screen.
This allows you to access a whole different settings. Menu, so just something to look out for when we talk about it later on in the tutorial, you have a speaker, microphone and, of course, the heart rate sensor, which will monitor your heart rate.
While you’re doing exercises, you can also take off the band’s using these little buttons at the top and bottom. So all you have to do is press in on the little button and just pull the fan out from side to side like so and as you can see, the band comes right out and you can of course slide it back in.
You can do the same thing with the other band and it locks right into place, so just press the button and slide right out. The Apple watch is a very unique charging port. What this allows you to do is take this Apple watch charging terminal and just stick it on the back of the Apple watch.
Now the other end is going to allow you to connect it to your regular wall. Mount right like so and as you can see, you can plug this right into the wall to charge your Apple watch easily. You can, of course, just take off the magnetic strip or put it back on with ease if that easy to charge your Apple watch.
Now we’re, going to show you some important features and settings for the Apple watch. As you can see, you can access the Apple watch home screen just by pressing once on the digital crown now to move around the home screen.
You need only press and hold your finger to swipe around just move your finger around and you can see the different applications that are available to open it up an app just tap on the application. For instance, this is the email app and I can quickly read some of my emails to go back press the digital crown to enter the previously entered app, just double-click the digital crown, to go right back to that app before now to rearrange your app icons.
All you need to do is press and hold on one of the app icons, at which point you can pick up the app icon and move it around. So if you want to have your mail application a little bit closer to your clock, you just need only to pick up the mail application and bring it over to a spot right next to the clock.
So, as you can see, I’m able to easily and more quickly access mail like. I would normally want to right there. You can also more easily adjust your home screen on your watch by going into the my watch, application clicking on app layout, pressing and holding and then moving around the different icons.
This will instantly affect your Apple watch and is that easy and simple to do from either your watch itself or your phone? In order to adjust the brightness and settings you’re going to want to go into the settings application and then you’re, going to scroll down to brightness and text size.
This allows you to increase the brightness. There are three different notches or decrease the brightness I like to keep mine on the medium setting in general. You can also change the text size here. If you’d, like it a little bit bigger, that might make it easier to read or you can have it smaller, so you can add more text on each page.
You can also add bold text, which is a cool feature. If you want something a little bit easier to read, also in the settings, you can adjust the sound haptics now the sound you can adjust whether you would like it to be loud or softer.
You can also mute the device so that it only taps you when it receives a notification. You can scroll down to see the haptics to see how hard it will actually tap on you. You can adjust that to see what kind of tap you like on your wrist to access do not disturb airplane mode, mute and ping.
Your iPhone, all you have to do, is swipe up and then scroll to the left. Until you see the connected tab, this is going to allow you to turn on and off. Your do, not disturb which make sure you receive, or don’t receive notifications on your Apple watch.
You can also turn on airplane mode if necessary, but give it a little bit of time to connect once you turn it back off. You can also turn off sound, but that will keep your haptic on the haptic. Is what taps you so to completely turn both sound and haptic off? You can select the do not disturb now say you lose your iPhone or you don’t know where it is.
You’re in a rush, just push this button and it’s gonna instantly ping. Your iPhone really simple. To find your iPhone. You could do it as many times as you need [ Music ] from the same glances menu, which is the list of different quick view applications.
You can swipe over to see your current battery life. As you can see, we have 66 % remaining. Now there’s, something really cool called power reserve. Now power reserve is great for reserving your battery when the battery is low.
Now it’s, going to continue to display the time, but all of the other apps will not be available to use. Now it acts as this mode, which is very convenient if you’re starting to go low on battery, but you still want to have your watch face.
All you have to do is press and hold on the side button like so then you’re, going to swipe to enter power reserve from power Reserve is only going to show you the time, and that is it that will reserve a lot of Battery, but it also means you can’t access anything else even from here.
The only way to get back everything is to completely restart your Apple watch, because, as you can see, if you turn it on or tap it all it’s. Going to do is show that now to get back to all of your other settings, you have to completely restart the Apple watch.
Unfortunately, you cannot access anything else, other than just restarting the watch, as you can see once that restarts it brings you right back to your normal Apple watch functionality. Now we’re, going to show you how to customize your watch face on your Apple watch to customize.
All you have to do is press and hold using the force touch. Now there are a few presets which you can either customize use as they are, or you can even create your own. So, as you can see, we have utility modular, simple motion skipped over one astronomy, color, solar, cronograph, Mickey and extra-large.
You can also create your own watch face in here as well. Now, for this purpose, we’re, going to show you how to create your own, but of course you can choose one of these watch faces or even customize it.
However, you like so we’re, going to click on new and we’re going to choose what type of watch face we want. We can use the digital crown to select the watch face. Now I like the utility, so I’m going to click utility from that I can hit customize.
As you can see, I’m first able to customize the detail. So how much detail do we have do we have no numbers? Do we have a lot of numbers? Do we have even the different seconds listed as well in minutes, or we can take down all the detail away? It’s that easy with the simple digital crown.
So I like all the numbers, but no minutes so that’s good! I’m going to swipe over to the next. Now we can change the color, so you can choose what type of color you would like for the minute hand. So, as you can see, we do have our standard red.
We have a gray, we have an orange, I like the orange color, so we’re gonna do that swipe over now we can choose what we would like to display for the date. So, as you can see, I’m gonna have Friday the 15th, and then that is what you need to do for that and you can choose over here up at the top what you want at the top left, so you can actually swipe Through so let’s start it off.
We have off there’d, be nothing there. You could have the date there. We already have the date. You have a calendar, you could have. The moon phase is sunrise/sunset the weather activity. You can have an alarm that you have a timer that you have a stopwatch.
You could even have the battery. If you want to have the battery listed there, you can also show a world clock in different locations, and those are all of the different options that you have. I’m gonna have the battery, because I like to be able to see what the battery is we go over here.
You have the same options, so I definitely think the weather looks pretty good at this side at the bottom. Instead of the calendar – and actually this is really cool because you can have even more spelled out word so the larger words at the bottom.
So let’s scroll through here, let’s, see the weather actually has a lot more. So I think I’m gonna keep the partly cloudy weather up at the top here, and for this one I’m gonna change it to my activity.
Now, when I start using the health applications, I’ll, be able to quickly see what my current activity is from there. So once you’re done, all you have to do is press the home button and then your watch face is completely customized.
When you click on it, as you can see, I now have a custom watch face the way I want it. This is what the standard utility watch looks like. Next, we have the modular watch as you can see, that’s. What it’s gonna look like I just want to give you guys a little view, so you can decide what you want.
