Fortunately, it’s not impossible to get a keyboard on apple watch and all it takes is a simple app. The iMessage app allows you to text using 50+ fonts and send GIFs & Emojis directly to your friends. You can also customize your keyboard theme to make your iMessages more personal.

The new Apple Watch Series 7 has a dedicated QWERTY keyboard that makes typing easier. The keyboard can be accessed from the Messages or Mail app when replying to or creating a message. You can also use the digital crown to scroll through and select letters to form words. The keyboard is much more efficient than scribble or dictation, and it also provides feedback when you type. However, the QWERTY keyboard is only available on the Apple Watch Series 7.

Other watches, including the smaller Apple Watch SE and older models, can still use scribble or third-party apps to type. One option is FlickType, which offers a full-fledged keyboard that has predictive text, speech output, and customizable settings. It’s also been designed to be accessible for people with vision loss, with large keys, high-contrast colors, and effective VoiceOver feedback.

The Apple Watch can also be used as a remote control for your iPhone. This is possible by connecting a Bluetooth keyboard and holding down the modifier keys. You can then navigate the Apple Watch with your keyboard, while your iPhone is playing music or responding to a call.
