For example, scrolling the Digital Crown will allow you to zoom in and out on Apple’s Maps app, while tapping it will take you back to the main home screen.

On the software side, the Apple Watch comes with Siri, allowing users to use voice commands at their wrist and to reply to messages. As on-screen typing will not be possible due to the small screen size, so a feature called Smart Replies will allow users to choose from a number of pre-written responses for those who feel silly talking to their wrist. Those who don’t will be able to answer calls from the Apple Watch.

Swiping up from the bottom of the display will launch a feature called Glances to swipe through recent notifications.
