How to Use Maps on Apple Watch for Navigation and Directions

You may feel helpless when your iPhone is navigating you to an important meeting, and an emergency call needs your attention, leaving you in a muffled up situation. An Apple Watch can come to your rescue in this situation.

Apple Watch comes with Maps, which allows you to use Maps for navigation and directions, find your current location, zoom in and out the area, map search, gather location info, call a location, get directions, and more.
