Steps to split the bill and calculate tips with the Apple Watch calculator
The good thing about these functions is that they are already installed by default on Apple smartwatches, as long as they have a version of watchOS 6 or higher. What you have to do is the following:
- Open the app from “Calculator”. This is one of the applications that is installed by default on an Apple Watch, so there is no loss.
- Use the digit keys in the app to, for example, enter the total amount of the restaurant bill. When you’ve done that, tap the “Advice” which is located in the upper right, right next to the button for the division.
- Now, turn the digital crown to set the tip to be awarded. This is something cultural that usually varies from one country to another, but generally it is located between 10 to 20% of the total bill.
- To split the bill, change the number of people using the digital crown. Turn it to set the number that will go into bill payment.
Thus, the Calculator application will show you, immediately, the amount of tip and the amount that each person must pay. As you see a function that is not bad and that can help you clear up your doubts, when you go to a bar or restaurant in the company of friends.
