Yes, you can make calls with an Apple Watch. If your Apple Watch is connected to your iPhone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, you can make and receive calls on your Apple Watch even if your iPhone is not nearby. You can use the Phone app on your Apple Watch to make a call, or you can use Siri to initiate a call by saying “Hey Siri, call [contact name].”
To make a call on your Apple Watch, follow these steps:
- Press the Digital Crown on your Apple Watch to go to the Home screen.
- Tap on the Phone app.
- Use the Digital Crown or your finger to scroll through your contacts or use Siri to call a specific contact.
- Tap on the contact you want to call.
- Tap on the phone icon to make the call.
Note that you need to have a cellular-enabled Apple Watch (Series 3 or later) and an active cellular plan with a supported carrier to make calls without your iPhone nearby. If your Apple Watch is connected to your iPhone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, you can still make calls even if you don’t have a cellular plan.
