Apple Watch includes a miniature version of Apple Maps, which offers many of the same features as the full iOS version if you know how to access them. Some of what Maps can do is fairly obvious, but there are a few features that require a bit more know-how. If you are interested in learning the ins and outs of Apple Maps on Watch OS and would like to know some simple tips for getting the most out of the turn-by-turn directions feature, we've got a handy tutorial for you. At first glance, Apple Maps on Apple Watch may seem like just a location browser. When you open the app, it automatically populates a map of your current location. You can drag your finger around on the screen to view nearby stores and landmarks. Turn the Digital Crown to zoom in on a particular location. You can also double-tap the screen. If you find a business or landmark that you'd like to know more about, tap it to bring up the information window. You can see the business's rating, hours of operation, phone number, address, and walking or driving directions. Tap the phone number to call directly from Apple Watch.
