    Already using your dominant hand? Can't answer the call on your Watch because your hands are full? Bring the Watch up to your face and touch the button to the tip of your nose. May be difficult when inebriated.

    Yeah, I think I'll pass. Why not just use a knuckle or something?

    Using your knuckle blocks your view of the touch target. You have an unobstructed view when using your nose.

    It really is. We used to need our fingers to answer calls, now we just need noses. If you are being sarcastic, you won't be next time you are able to answer an important call thanks to the tip of your nose.

    Did this the other day at work so I wouldn't have to change my gloves.

    Hmm. This was suggested on the thread that the guy had answered his mother in law in a public washroom. (he said he had a dry pinky).

    Talk about smudging! You're definitely going to need to keep a polishing cloth in your wallet if you're going to entertain doing this! :)

    If you wear long sleeves, like a dress shirt for work, then your Watch gets wiped with cloth every time you push your sleeve back to check your Watch.

    Because you'll be dragging yours. :D

    He said his hands are full... So assume too full for a knuckle poke.

    Just tried it. This is awesome. Even can do "force touch". I guess people with pointier noses than I can even enter the passcode.

    Did this the other day when my hands were covered in raw ground beef.

    Answered a call with my nose. :)

    i already do this on my phone when i have gloves on that don't have the touch stuff in them (or if it's laying face up on the desk or counter and my hands are filthy)

    so ya.... i guess it's an automatic progression to do it with the watch, too!
