How to Ping apple watch

If you’re not familiar with the term “ping,” it’s a method of sending a signal from one device to another to test connectivity. When you “ping” your Apple Watch, you’re sending a signal from your iPhone to your Watch to see if the connection is working. If you’re having trouble connecting your Watch to your iPhone, pinging can help you determine if the issue is with your Watch or your iPhone.

Set Up Ping

In order to use the Ping feature, you and your friends must have an Apple Watch and must be running Watch OS 3 or later. Once you have updated to the latest version of Watch OS, open the Ping app on your Apple Watch.

From here, you can add friends by tapping the “+” sign in top right corner of the screen. Once you have added a friend, their contact information and photo will appear in the Ping app. To ping a friend, simply tap on their name and then tap “Ping.” Your friend will receive a notification that you are trying to reach them and they can ping you back by tapping “Reply.”

Find Your Watch

Use the Ping Feature

The Ping feature on your Apple Watch lets you know where your iPhone is, even if it’s in Silent mode. This is really useful if you can’t find your iPhone, or if it’s stolen. The Ping feature sends a sound to your iPhone, so you can hear where it is. You can also use the Ping feature to find a lost Apple Watch.
