Those who have an Apple Watch, might get stuck in zoom mode without any idea on how to get out of it, or might not know how to enable the feature in the first place. 

Apple rolled out the Apple Watch in 2015. The iPhone company released its latest wearable, the Apple Watch Series 3 in September. The Series 3 is priced at $329 for the standard Wi-Fi version and $399 for the LTE cellular model.

The device's zoom feature is a bit tricky at first, but is pretty simple and useful after learning how to use it.

How To Zoom In On The Apple Watch Screen

Unfortunately, it’s not so simple to use the zoom feature on the Apple Watch when users are new to the device. People are used to zooming in or out on devices by simply using two fingers moving inwards or outwards. For the Apple Watch, users have to incorporate an additional step.

To zoom in on the Apple Watch, users can:

  1. Double tap on the Apple Watch screen with two fingers to zoom in. The zoom feature will work even if the device is locked with a passcode.

  2. Users can then drag with two fingers to move around the display screen. A box should appear on the side of the screen showing the area in which the user is zoomed in on.
