Another feature of the Apple Watch 9 is “Double Tap” (“Double Tap”, in direct translation), a new gesture control feature that uses only the user’s index finger and thumb. In this way, it is possible to quickly touch both fingers twice to activate many of the watch’s basic functions. This includes answering and ending a call, pausing and restarting a timer, or even pausing and playing a song, for example.
