Watch app instructions:

TYPING
- Don't worry about being super accurate with your taps or flicks!
- Type a word, and then flick RIGHT. This will guess the word and insert a space.
- For alternative word suggestions, flick DOWN.
- To insert punctuation, flick RIGHT again after a word.
- For alternative punctuation suggestions including emoji, flick UP or DOWN.
- To delete, flick LEFT.

WHEN DONE
- To review your entire message or move the cursor, rotate the Digital Crown. Tap anywhere to resume typing.
- To send your message, firmly press the screen to bring up the menu. This includes: "Send", "Clear", "Predictions" and "Sound".

Please note that there are a few things still missing from the watch app, such as number or symbol entry, as well as manual typing.

Warmly,
- Kosta and Ashley
