So I discovered this...
Secret copy and paste functionality built into the new Apple Watch
How'd you do it?
Explaining how to do it would be useful....
This. Please tell us more! =]
Something tells me it has to do with accessibility but I don't care enough to investigate.
And where exactly would you be able to paste it?
I sense a troll. Account created today, with two posts (each talking about this hidden copy / paste functionality, neither post describes how to activate it).
Exactly two posts since joining MR. Both with same image and no other details.
Rhymes with roll....?
jinx. angle beat me to it.
Not a troll. To reproduce:
Go into Apple Watch app on iPhone
Privacy->Motion & Fitness, then turn off Heart Rate and Fitness Tracking
On the watch, open the Workout App
Double-tap and hold to get the magnifying glass and to get a Select menu
Tap Select All to get Copy
Here's a video:

Okay, so you copy... and then you can post it..... where?
that's so weird.
Why is it only under these circumstances. They even have a "define" and a box pops up and everything.
Where else can this functionality be used?
But none the less, very good find by OP.
You naysayers should feel ashamed calling him troll
Huh looks like some iOS functionality the accidentally left in the watch os banch
Yep. I bet they used a UITextView for the message and forgot to make it unselectable.
Where can you paste it? As far as I can tell, nowhere because there are no text input fields.
Interestingly the "Define" menu item sort of works as well. Tapping "Manage" just brings to you an empty screen, and "Search Web" does nothing. It's obviously something that they accidentally left in, and I don't think it necessarily means that they have any plans to implement copy/paste on the watch.
^^^ what he said.
Differant time scale means I cannot reply instantly, yes I discovered this last night (uk time). It's just to show that the Copy and Paste function is Already built into the Apple watch.
It's hardly usable but it shows what may be to come in future updates.
Due to being (UK) time I cannot reply instantly.
I am certainly not Trolling, this is for education purposes to show that Apple may have plans for copy/paste on the watch for the future.
This can be done in a couple of Apps already built intothe Apple watch.
