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.
How to Enable Handoff on Apple Watch
Step #1. Launch Apple Watch app on your iPhone.
Step #2. Tap on My Watch tab at the bottom.
Step #3. Tap on General.
Step #4. Toggle on Enable Handoff.
If you are viewing a message on your Apple Watch, you would notice a new app icon at the bottom left corner of your iPhone. It is the app that is currently active on your Apple Watch. Simply, swipe up on the app icon and you have the access to the same page which you left off on your watch.
Handoff is compatible with Safari, Calendar, Contacts, Mail, Messages, Notes, Reminders, Keynote, Pages and Numbers. It is also compatible with the third party apps like, Pocket, Wonderlist, NyTimes and more.
