Official Apple Watch User Guide Now Available [Download]

The successful roll-out of the Apple Watch doesn’t simply rest on the devices shipping out to those who pre-ordered it back on April 10th – there are several components to this major new product hitting the ground running. The Apple Watch App Store, complete with a reported 3,000+ apps, has just been launched, and now, the Apple Watch User Guide has also been published online on the Cupertino’s very own website, while also being available to download from iBooks.

Sure, not many people will read the official User Guide, because, let’s face it, we’re all experts. Being serious, though, seldom do we consult the manual unless a problem occurs, although with the Apple Watch being completely new and relatively alien, the Apple Watch User Guide will probably be getting quite a few hits over the next days and weeks.

Therein, you’ll find detailed information on how to navigate through the user interface, take advantage of the numerous functions, and learn of any good tips for everyday Apple Watch use. It’s definitely worth having a look through if you’re planning to or have already ordered your Apple Watch, particularly since you’ll likely be way too excited and preoccupied to do so once the device is in your possession.

There’s a quick-start guide helping you to get up and running with the Apple Watch, including pairing with iPhone, and you’ll be treated to an overview of the various watch faces available. It’s quite full-on, but necessarily so, since we’re talking about an all-new platform, and may prove invaluable in helping early adopters to familiarize themselves with these new surroundings.

We will, however, offer plenty of guides and how-to tutorials relating to the Apple Watch in the future, so if we stumble across any cool apps, tips or features, we’ll be sure to share them with you guys.


The Apple Watch is available in nine countries as of today, which includes Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US.

You can check out the full user guide by going here, or you can download it from iBooks from here.
