All Apple Watch models include a stock Calculator app that offers a couple of handy features for working out how much you should tip when eating out and how much each person in a group owes if you're splitting the bill.

The two functions can be used together, but if it's just yourself dining out then you can just leave the People field set to 1. The steps below show you how it works.

Note: If you see a standard percentage (%) button where the TIP button should be, you can change the calculator layout to replace it. Simply go to Settings -> Calculator and select Tip Function instead of Per cent.

How to Use the Split Bill and Tip Calculator Functions on Apple Watch

  1. Launch the Calculator app on your Apple Watch.
  2. Enter the total amount of the bill.
  3. Tap the TIP button in the top-right corner, just left of the divide button.
  4. With the Tip field highlighted in green, turn your watch's Digital Crown to change the percentage.
  5. To split the bill between a group of people, tap People and then use the Digital Crown to change the number (the maximum is 50).

You'll see the total amount below the two fields change to reflect your tip adjustments, and the amount below that will change depending on how many people are paying.

wait what? We pay the minimum wage (at least) and tip here in Germany? ?
Tipping is a big social problem and needs to go away globally.

How it's presented: compensation in lieu of gratitude for good service.

How it really works: it allows the employer to drive down wages and bottom line costs and retain people through making up tips. It's a form of indenture because the total compensation is unpredictable if you leave to go and work somewhere else with the same system.

Pay your staff a reasonable wage and don't expect tips. If that hurts your business, it's not viable or perhaps you should sell that Model S and pay your staff more (realistically how restaurants in the US operate).

This article seems to be incorrect... You can't have the Tip at 0% as the minimum is 1% (which is a bummer)... At least on mine with the latest public release...

Do people not know how to use a calculator? 10% tip = divide by 10. 20% tip = divide by 10 and double it. 5% tip = divide 10 and half it. 15% tip = Add the 10% + 5% tip. Bill for 4 people? Divide bill by 4. Bill for 23 people? Divide by 23.

any% tip = divide by 100 and multiply the tip amount. ie 17.3% tip = divide by 100 multiply by 17.3

Wow, just wow.

I'm ready to get yelled at.
