There are a lot of similarities and compatibility between the Apple Watch and the iPhone but, unfortunately, one big difference that cannot be overcome is the size of the screen. The Apple Watch screen is pretty small and you may find that you have trouble reading it.
One way that you can adjust this is to apply bold text on the watch. This will make a lot of the text bolder and, hopefully, easier to read. So if you struggle to read the text on your watch at times and are looking for ways to make it more comfortable to use, then follow the steps below to enable bold text on the Apple Watch and see if that improves your experience.
