How to Enable Handoff on Apple Watch: Make the Utmost Use of Continuity With iPhone

Handoff is an integral part of the Continuity feature that was introduced with iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite. It allows you to continue from where you left off on other iDevices. As for instance, if you are reading an email on your Mac and all of a sudden if you have to leave it mid way, you can pick it up on your iPhone right from where you left off.

You can enable Handoff on your Apple Watch as well in order to make the utmost use of this innovative feature. Supposing you have got an email or a message on your Apple Watch and want to reply to it in detail, how would you do it considering you can’t type on your watch? That’s when a feature like Handoff can be very useful in letting you reply to the email or message effortlessly from your iPhone.
