The flashlight is one of the most important features on any personal device. You occasionally need light, and when you do you need it to be convenient.
The flashlight on the iPhone and Android devices is pretty good, but it’s a bit inconvenient because you have to dig into your pocket or purse for your phone, do the finger magic, and then hold the phone to aim the light.
Using the flashlight on the Apple Watch is way easier.
- Raise your wrist.
- Swipe up from the bottom.
- Click the flashlight button.
- Go back to doing what you were doing with both hands.
You can also swipe to the left to get 1) a flashing light, and 2) a red light, which I intend to use during astronomy sessions when I don’t want to mess up my night vision.
