    I have screenshots of my watch showing up on my iPhone, but I didn't take them. I don't even use the friend button of my watch.

    Anyone experiencing this?

    Could it be because you're wearing it too close to your hand and having it inadvertently press the buttons?

    I'm not sure.
    So no one else experienced this?

    yup watch was prob on snug and near your wrist, then you bent your hand up at the wrist. Common thing to happen with watches.

    what buttons do you have to press to take a screen shot of the watch?

    Yep, happens to me all the time. Bend my hand back which presses the buttons and I end up with a screenshot of the watch face almost every day. I wondered what was going on until I caught it happen one day.

    You definitely took them, albeit inadvertently.

    The digital crown and the other (friends) button below it.

    I do this constantly. Very frustrating, between screen shots and Siri being activated. I did try swapping wrists and also swapping the orientation but I just can't settle with it like this. It would be good if we had an option to turn this off

    I find screenshots of my watch from time to time. It's definitely inadvertent button presses in my case.

    Yeah, I have random screenshots popping up in my camera roll all the time, especially when taking the watch off. Countless number of screenshots of the passcode entry screen.

    Screenshots really should be disabled when the device is locked.

    I've had screen shots taken. Especially when working out and bending my wrists back really far. Presses on the buttons. No big deal.

    Just checked my Photos app on my Mac, I have 4 screenshots from the watch there I haven't deleted yet. So yes, happens all the time to me as well.

    How are you guys managing to do this? I suppose that my wrist's range of motion is more limited.

    (I normally wear it with the crown on the left, but flipped it to see if I could get the buttons to press)

    I had this happen the other day when I played golf. With the glove on I guess it pushed both buttons during my swing.

    May have to try the reverse crown setup to prevent it in the future.
