Increase Text Size on Apple Watch
« on: June 26, 2015, 02:20:28 PM »
Since the screen of the Apple Watch is very small, reading text on it can be difficult for many people, especially those with vision problems. Luckily, you can manually increase the font size of apps so that you can read the text more easily without moving the watch closer to your face. By changing the text size setting, all apps that support dynamic text size will change accordingly. These apps include system apps and third-party apps.

1. Launch the Apple Watch app from your iPhone’s home screen.

2. Scroll to the fourth section, and choose the Brightness and Text Size option.

3. Move the white slider of the text size option to the right to increase the text size. Moving the slider to the rightmost location will set the text at its biggest size. In this screen, you will also see the Bold Text option which forces all text to display in bold. Turn this option on if you find the font hard to read.

This setting does not change the text size of apps on your iPhone.

This seems like a great thing to know, but wouldn't the text get too big? I mean the screen on that iWatch is pretty small as it is. Would it make it harder to see what you're doing? I mean I personally lower my font on my phone. So, the way I see this I'm thinking that the screen would be too small to be compatible with a bigger font.
