⌚ Apple Watch

Apple Watch uses two types of emojis. When responding to a message, a regular emoji can be sent. This uses the same emoji set as iOS and other Apple platforms.

watchOS also includes an animated emoji feature. This provides various options to customize the appearance of various smileys, hand gestures, and hearts. An emoji-like reaction feature is also available, allowing a message to be given a variety of responses including πŸ‘, ❀️, and ‼️.

Please note: watchOS animated emoji is unrelated to standard Unicode emojis supported by watchOS and iOS, and is also a different feature to Animoji on iOS.


The smiley can be customized to show a number of faces including tongue-out, heart eyes, crying. These come in yellow or red.



Hearts are available in red, purple and blue and include wings, arrow, and other animations.



Animated emoji gestures available include fingers crossed, shaka, thumbs up, and waving hands.
