How To Screenshot Apple Watch
Ever since the release of the wrist-worn gadget, print-screening was available with an iPhone-like button combination. If capturing a screenshot on the iOS device is made by simultaneously pressing the Home and the Power buttons, the Apple Watch required a combo of Side button and Digital Crown presses. Nevertheless, when the trick is applied on a device running watchOS 2, nothing happens. If you insist on pressing the two buttons you end up with an Apple Watch force restart.
Fact: The watchOS 2 release was initially scheduled for September 16, but was delayed for 5 days because of an important bug. We’ve inquired Apple about this print-screen flaw and will update this article whenever we get a reply, regarding this issue! Stay tuned.
