How to Make Calls with the TicWatch Pro 3

One of the most common questions new owners ask about the TicWatch Pro 3 is how to make phone calls with the device, and fortunately the answer is really very simple. In this article we’ll guide you through the process of making calls on a TicWatch Pro, with screenshots.

The TicWatch Pro 3 has a built in microphone and speaker, so you can use the device to make calls from your wrist. If you have the GPS version of the watch, it will need to be paired with a smartphone via Bluetooth for this to work, but if you have the 4G version, with its own SIM card, you can connect to a cellphone network directly without the need for a smartphone.

We should point out that this process should be very similar, if not identical across most Wear OS smartwatches.

Step 1 – Locate the Phone App

Navigate to the app menu on your TicWatch Pro, and you’ll find an icon with an old fashioned telephone handset – this is the phone call app that you will use to make and recieve calls on the watch. Tap on the app icon to get started.

Step 2 – Open the App

Once you tap on the icon, the phone app will open up and you’ll be shown your recent call history, along with a contacts list and an icon to open up the keypad for dialing a number directly.

If you want to call an existing contact, just scroll down until you find their name and tap on it to start the call. Otherwise, tap on the keypad icon to start dialing.

Step 3 – Dialing a Phone Number

With the keypad open, just enter the number that you wish to dial. Obviously the keypad is quite small, so be sure to check you’ve entered the correct number, as it’s easy to make a mistake – especially if you’ve got big fingers.

You can press the delete key to correct a mistake, and if you need to enter a special symbol just tap on the button on the bottom left to bring up those keys. Once you’re ready to dial, just click on the green phone icon to start your call.

Step 4 – Making and Ending the Call

While your call is in progress, the screen will look something like this. You’ll be able to hear them through the speaker on your watch – or via Bluetooth headphones if they’re connected – and you can speak into the watch’s built in microphone. Once you’re ready to end the call, simply tap on the red “hang up phone” icon.

We told you it was simple, didn’t we? Now you know how to make calls with a TicWatch Pro 3, or indeed any other Wear OS smartwatch.
