How to Add or Remove Contacts in Friends on Apple Watch

Apple Watch allows you to remain in touch with your friends in the most personal way-thanks largely to a unique feature called “Friends.” You can add up to 12 of your favorite contacts in the Friends on your Watch to be able to communicate with them instantly.

You can edit contacts in Friends as easily as you’d like. Though you have to do it with the help of your iPhone through the Apple Watch app, it doesn’t seem to be a difficult task. Of course, you would have liked to get it done on your watch itself. However, there is no such option as of now.
