Checking your emails can easily get you distracted, especially when users can do it right on their Apple Watch. Despite all the reports that blame emails to be one of the primary cause of productivity loss, I still firmly believe that the Mail app deserves an honorable place in my everyday life.
But here is the problem. As of right now, you can’t compose a new email message directly on your Apple Watch or send an email from your wrist. Sorry to break it to you so early. However, there are many other useful features that the Mail app provide.
Let’s me break it down for you.
The most prominent feature. If the Mail app on your Apple Watch doesn’t allow you to check and read your emails, then I don’t know if we even need a watch for. To read your emails on the Apple Watch, just open the Mail app and give it a few seconds to load. After that, it should present you with all the incoming message.
If you found any emails that are no longer important, you can remove them from your inbox. To delete any emails from your Apple Watch, just swipe from the right side and tap on Trash.
Reply to an Email
Even though you can’t create and send a new email directly on your Apple Watch, you can still reply to an existence one. Any emails that you sent from an iPhone or desktop that get loaded into your Mail app are “replyable.” While you’re viewing particular email, just scroll down and tap on the Reply button at the bottom of the page.
Mark Email as Unread
Sometimes we come across an important email that you want to remind yourself to read at another time. What’s better to do so then marking that email as unread. To mark emails as unread from your watch, swipe right from the item and select More. Now tap on Mark as Unread. You can also perform the opposite action using the same method to mark an email as read.
Flagging an email can also be another way to remind yourself to read the message again. To flag your emails on the Apple Watch, use the same More function from the previous step and choose Flag.
I take advantage these features throughout the day, however, not having the ability to create and send a brand new email from the Apple Watch feels very inconvenient. Hopefully, Apple will add this feature to their stock app soon.
