How Far Do Apple Watch Walkie Talkies Work?[ANSWERED]


The Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie is one of the coolest features of the Apple Watch. It lets you quickly and easily communicate with other Apple Watch owners in your area, even when you don’t have your phone or WiFi signal. But how far does it work? 

How Far Do Apple Watch Walkie Talkies Work

What Is the Range of Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie?

The range of the Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie depends on several factors. The type of Bluetooth connection, the number of walls and other obstacles between the devices, and the distance from the device to the Apple Watch. But it is known to be around 30 feet from both devices.

Settings to Enable for Full Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie Range 

  1. Turn on Bluetooth.
  2. Turn on Airplane Mode.
  3. Turn on Location Services (this allows the Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie app to use your location).
  4. Make sure your watch is charged and connected to Wi-Fi. Make sure your phone is also connected to Wi-Fi, as well as any other devices you want to connect with via walkie-talkie.

For your Apple Watch to be able to make a walkie-talkie call, it must be paired with an iPhone. When you set up the watch for the first time, you will be asked if you want to pair it with an iPhone. If not, follow these steps:

  • – Open the Apple Watch app on your phone and tap “My Watch” in the list of options at the bottom of your screen. Tap General > Walkie-Talkie under Settings on your phone screen.{Once in this menu, choose whether or not you would like notifications sent from your watch to appear on both devices (or just one). You can also set whether or not alarms should sound on either device when they go off while they’re both paired. For example: if someone calls while I’m out walking my dog but forget my phone at home because I left it charging while cooking dinner – will this alarm still go off?}
  • – Turn off Bluetooth and Airplane mode so both devices are connected through Wi-Fi (if available).
  • – On an iPhone XS Max with iOS 12 installed, simply swipe down from near where notifications appear at top right corner of display then select Wi-Fi option which allows users connect their devices without using cellular service such as AT&T LTE network but instead relying solely upon local Wi-Fi routers within proximity area.”

How far does the walkie-talkie on the apple watch work

The Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie is a great way to reach out and touch someone, but how far can you go? In most cases, the range of your Apple Watch walkie-talkie will be limited by your cell phone carrier.

Most cellular providers offer coverage at least up to 50 miles (80 kilometres) from their towers. If you’re in an area with fewer cell towers or if there are other obstructions between you and the closest tower (such as mountains), then the range may be shorter than these estimates.

You might also want to think about how much battery life you have left on your watch before going on a long walkie-talkie journey. If you don’t want it to die in the middle of your conversation, consider bringing along some portable power sources like Mophies or battery packs for charging up on the go!

Press and hold the pairing button on the back of the case until you see the status light flash white.

Press and hold the pairing button on the back of the case until you see the status light flash white. If you don’t see a status light, make sure that your Apple Watch is awake and unlocked. If your Apple Watch is asleep, press the side button to wake it up.

Open the lid of your Apple Watch Series 3 or later.

– Open the lid of your Apple Watch Series 3 or later.

– Hold the pairing button on the back of the case until you see the status light flash white. This will take less than a minute to complete. If you don’t see any lights flashing, check that your watch is awake and connected to Wi-Fi or cellular data and try again.

– Go to settings > Bluetooth > pair with watch

On your iPhone, go to Settings > Bluetooth and make sure that Bluetooth is turned on.

To get started, you’ll need to turn the app on in Settings. Go to Settings > Bluetooth and make sure that Bluetooth is turned on. You should see a message saying “Bluetooth is Off.”

Now you’re ready for some action! Press the Bluetooth button on your iPhone, then tap the name of your watch at the top of the list (it will appear as “Apple Watch”). Your watch will show up under Devices with a checkmark next to its name; tap it again if necessary and then tap Connect.

On your watch, tap My Watch, then tap General > Walkie-Talkie.

To use Walkie-Talkie on Apple Watch, you need to enable it in the Watch app for iPhone.

  1. On your iPhone, open the Watch app.
  2. Tap My Watch and then tap General > Walkie-Talkie.

If you have an Apple Music membership, you can also see which songs are playing on your friends’ watches. Other members of a group conversation will hear what song is playing on each other’s devices; they won’t hear anything else (for example, conversations).

Tap Add Friends to choose friends and family members that you’d like to talk with.

You can add up to 20 people to a list of friends and family members that you’d like to talk with. You can also add groups so that everyone in the group can hear each other’s audio.

You can share your location with your friends and family members, so they’ll know where you are when you make a call or send a message. You can also share your heartbeat, which is pretty cool!

If there’s something interesting going on around you (like if someone stands next to an Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie), take a photo or video and send it along with your voice memo so everyone else will see what’s happening too!


Does Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie work without WiFi

Yes, you can use the walkie-talkie app on your Apple Watch without WiFi or cellular service. You’ll need Bluetooth turned on and WiFi turned off to use this feature. To connect to another device, both devices must have an active connection to the same Wi-Fi network. If one of your devices has cellular service and another does not, they can still connect as long as they’re connected to the same Wi-Fi network. That’s because there’s no way for them to communicate over a cellular network; too many steps in between!

Does Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie work without service?

Yes, Apple Watch Walkie-Talkie works without service. The watch uses a cellular connection to make calls and send messages. But if you’re out in the wilderness and away from any cell service, you can still use the feature: all you need is Wi-Fi connectivity for the device that’s receiving your message (like your iPhone).

Can walkie-talkies work without the internet?

Walkie-talkies do not require internet. Walkie-talkies use radio frequency for communication and can be used anywhere with a clear line of sight. The range of this communication is about 2 miles, but it depends on many factors such as the device itself and obstructions in between like trees that may block or absorb the signal.

The walkie-talkie is not secure or encrypted; anyone with a walkie-talkie can listen to your conversations if they’re within range.


All the information you need to set up your device is contained within its memory and doesn’t require any external data sources.

This means that even if your phone isn’t working or has no service, it will still work fine on its own!
