Text and Calling any number from Apple Watch

This app puts a number pad on your Apple
Watch so you can make calls or send texts
from your wrist to numbers that aren't already
saved in your contacts.

Call With Apple Watch

It's easy to call or text someone from your
Apple Watch if you have that person already
saved in your contacts. Or they called
recently.

Strangely, Apple didn't outfit its Watch with a
number pad to dial a number manually, leaving
such seemingly basic functionality to a 14-
year-old developer from Holland who created
the Watch Keypad app.

With Watch Keypad, you get a simple number
pad to dial a number from your wrist. After
entering a number, a force touch on your Apple Watch brings up buttons to call or text that number. There is also a button to view
recent calls and another that swaps out the
number pad for three symbols: +, # and star.

Not only are the numbers of recent calls
saved to the Apple Watch, but you can also
view your call and text history on the
companion iPhone app. Watch Keypad costs $0.99, £0.79, AU$1.49.
