    Any one know how to modify all 14 default messages on the apple watch? In the settings you can only change 6.

    Thanks!

    When you change the default ones, it adds a new one and still keeps the default one. hth

    What do you mean? For example, a default response that came with the watch is "BRB" but I don't see it in the settings app to change that response.

    Well I changed all the default ones, and then when I go to reply to message, the default ones still appear with my new ones underneath. Now when I go to the apple watch app - messages, all I see are my new ones and not the default ones. So it didn't seem to change the default ones, just add new ones.

    I think the other preset texts are contextual based, so if the message you're replying too says for example "let me know if you can make it" the preset responses say "yes, no, maybe" etc...
    Or they may say "Thank you, no thanks, ok" etc depending on what the senders text says.
    Pretty cool!

    Your custom preset texts are at the bottom usually.

    Oh okay. Just curious but do you have 14 options when you reply to a message on your apple watch? I am wondering if there are a certain number of slots

    Thanks again

    On my most recent text message I have 10 default replies and 6 that I created. 16 total options.

    ----------

    Just got another text - 14 possible built-in replies, along with 6 personalized ones for a total of 20.

    I sometimes only see my own custom replies, and other times I see all of them. Is there a pattern I'm not paying attention to, or is this a glitch?

    I also wish I could rearrange the order of all replies.

    Yes, I also wish we could rearrange the order. Sometimes I don't see all my custom replies when the person asks "this or that" and then the watch recognizes that type of question and gives us answers pertaining to that question. Other than that, it seems to be working okay

    I actually just received a group message and didn't have 14 choices, maybe about five. Maybe it is a glitch, I am not sure, hopefully someone else can chime in :)
