Can You Use WhatsApp On A Smartwatch?
At the time of writing this guide, there is no dedicated WhatsApp Application available for Apple Watch, Samsung Galaxy Watches, or other Smartwatches.
However, you can receive and respond to notifications, messages & calls from your Smartwatch.
How To Use WhatsApp On The Smartwatch Without SIM?
Most Modern Smartwatches such as Apple Watch, Samsung Galaxy Watches, and others come with Bluetooth connection, which allows them to connect with your smartphone.
You can use the Bluetooth connection to connect your Smartwatch with the smartphone and receive the WhatsApp Notification, messages, and calls from your Smartwatch.
On Samsung Galaxy Watches, you get the options to send the pre-written response, voice notes, and emojis as a response. Similarly, other smartwatches also come with pre-written responses, which make it easier to respond to queries.
Here’s how you can connect your Smartwatch with your smartphone.
- Go to your Smartwatch and enable the Bluetooth Connection.
- Now go to your smartphone and enable Bluetooth Connection.
- On your smartphone, open the explore section of Bluetooth and look for your Smartwatch on the list of available devices. If you have Apple Watch, you should see “Apple Watch” on the list. Similarly, if you have Fitbit or Galaxy Watch, you will see the relevant name on the list.
- Tap on the name of your Smartwatch on your list and let the Bluetooth establish the connection.
Once the Bluetooth connection is established, you will receive the WhatsApp Notification, Calls, and messages on your Smartwatch.
How To Use WhatsApp On Apple Watch Without SIM?
Like other smartwatches, Apple Watch also allows you to receive WhatsApp messages, calls, and notification, but the problem here is that you can only reply to recent messages and notification.
There’s no way you can explore the previous messages. However, you can use the “WatchApp,” which is designed specifically for Apple Watch, and it allows you to check your previous response from your Apple Watch. Here’s how you can set up the WatchApp.
- Install WhatsApp on your Apple Watch.
- Now open it, and it should show you the QR code on the screen.
- Open your WhatsApp and open the QR Code Scanner to Scan the QR code on your Apple Watch.
Once you scan it, the App will get connected, and you will be able to receive messages, calls, and notifications. WatchApp is free to use App, but the free version comes with only basic features, and if you want to access full features, you will need a premium version.
In My Opinion, you should use WatchApp only if you really want to check your previous messages. In most cases, you won’t need to check previous messages as you can simply check it on your Apple Watch. So, my recommendation is that you should use the Bluetooth connection to receive WhatsApp messages, calls, and notifications.
