Inside the highly customizable app that connects your Apple Watch to your iPhone

“The forthcoming Apple Watch is all about customization, as demonstrated by the long list of user-configurable options found in the companion app hidden within Apple’s iOS 8.2 beta for iPhone,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.

“With the companion app, users will be able to configure a number of custom settings, such as what content is displayed on the Apple Watch, what music or photos are stored locally on the device, personalized text message quick-reply choices, and much more,” Hughes reports. “In the beta build, four parent menus are available corresponding to contacts, health-related applications, messages, and calendar. The app also includes a fifth, catch-all menu labeled ‘More.'”

“Apple allows up to 12 of a user’s contacts to appear on the Friends screen, which can be accessed by pressing the side button on the Apple Watch,” Hughes reports. “From there, users can call, send messages, or use the Digital Touch to send sketches, taps and heartbeats.”
