    If I had to guess, you can click the digital crown and digital touch button at the same time to take a screenshot. The image can be shared with your iPhone.

    Just speculation

    And for what it's worth, it was tweeted from an iPhone.

    So I'm assuming then if you do a screen shot it automatically shows up on your iPhone and/or iPad?

    I'm guessing it's stored on the photos app which is shared with your iPhone.

    Maybe you use the Apple Watch iOS to take the screenshot remotely.

    I tried to find the source by viewing the metadata, but no luck. I did find the resolution though. It's 312x390 pixels, which means Phil is using the 42mm model.

    Do you mean the Watch App on the phone? That could work, I guess...

    That would be terrible. I want to take a screenshot on my watch, let me pull out my iPhone.

    It'll likely be a button combo or something. The crown+ digital touch button seems hard, but it's hard to tell.

    Yup, pressing digital crown and the friends button at the same time will take a screenshot on Apple Watch. The screenshot will then be synced back to iPhone's photo library :)

    That watch face is not one of the default ones?

    or is that the one with the globe, but changes with time

    I agree with you!!

    I was just trying to clarify what their post was saying.

    Edit: maybe a two finger force touch?

    I'd imagine it is the globe one and it changes at night.

    That seems like a good way to me.

    It's the globe but you can zoom out to the moon. They did this in the first keynote.

    It was shown on the keynote. It's the one with the globe where you have this little moon in the lower left corner. When you click it it "files" to the moon.
