On the settings menu, you can also change the font size for the Notes app on your Watch.

How To Use Notes for Apple Watch

The best thing about Notes is having your notes ready at all times. Add the notes on iPhone, then they will be with you on the Watch all the time. The notes you deem most important can be checked directly from the Apple Watch Glances menu.

If you have a more detailed note that you want to refer to more often, then you can go back to it quickly by using the multitasking trick. To access the note, just double-click the Digital Crown to display the last used screen.

You can edit, add and delete notes directly from your Apple Watch. The Watch’s microphone works seamlessly with Siri, which means you can dictate new entries and additional details to notes that already exist. To see your saved notations, go to the home screen view of the app, where they are listed. Tap on the item you want to expand. To add a fresh note, just tap the “+” button!

To edit a note you have already saved, open its expanded view and press the screen. A force touch will give you with a hidden options menu with the following buttons: Increase, Decrease, Append and Delete. The Increase/Decrease will change the text size.

    How stupid of Apple to release it without notes, since notes has been on iPhones since the beginning. Glad they saw past their blunder and released the watch notes app.
