An Apple Watch is a pretty amazing device, fitting impressive technology into a small package and offering access to an array of software, data, and content kept on a paired iPhone

However, due to the small size of its screen, it's often hard to see what you're looking at on your Apple Watch face. 

The good news is that you can easily zoom in and out on your Apple Watch, getting a clear view quickly and then returning to the full view.

Here's how to do it.
