    Loving my apple watch it's basically everything I was hoping for when I went back to iPhone in the fall and gave up my android and android watch.

    One thing I loved about my android watch was that if someone was calling and I swiped to answer it would direct the Call through my wireless ear buds. Currently on my apple watch whenever I press answer it directs the call through the watch, anyone know of any way to fix this?(I'm using the LG Tone Infinums if that matters.)

    Thanks for your help!

    Silly question but doesn't your blue tooth headset have an answer button already? My LG Tone Pros have an answer button defeating the purpose of answering a call on my watch only to talk on the headset.

    I do have a button on my headset, its not like the situation is unusable. But I usually have one of the earbuds in my ear already so being able to just look at the watch and tap answer was so nice and convenient on my other smart watches. I know they will fix this eventually was just wondering if anyone knew a workaround for now.

    I have to admit I cannot see any logic behind why Apple set it up that way. If you've got BT headphones connected to either the watch or the phone, why would you then want to use the watch as a speakerphone by default? Makes no sense. The call should go to the headphones.

    Wondering if maybe there is a force touch feature somewhere on the watch where you can change the source of the phone calls like you can do in the music app.

    Wouldn't selecting answering on iPhone do the same?

    I don't know if this changes if a watch is paired, but if you have a bluetooth headset paired and choose to answer on the phone it will answer to the BT headset. You can then change it on the phone screen if you want
