AssistiveTouch allows you to use an on-screen button for certain features that are not accessible otherwise. For example, the digital Crown button can be difficult or impossible to push if you have an injury or disability in your wrist area. AssistiveTouch makes it possible to use the Crown button if you’re unable to touch the physical button with your finger. It also lets you perform other tasks in different situations, including when you need more advanced controls over your on-screen elements.
If you no longer need the AssistiveTouch feature, you can disable it from your Apple Watch.
