Use Your Apple Watch to Share Your Exact Location

The Apple Watch makes text messaging from the wrist convenient. Buttons in the main screen of the Messages app make it easy to dictate a message or tap a canned reply. But what if you want to share your location to show where you’re picnicking or your spot in a mall parking lot? To do that, force-touch Messages’ compose/reply screen and tap Send Location to add a tiny map to the conversation, with a pin at your location. This map isn’t especially useful on the Apple Watch, but on the iPhone, recipients can tap it to view a larger map or get directions to the pin.
