You can find out a lot of important information about the iPhone on its About menu, and you can do the same thing on the Apple Watch. So if you need to find your Apple Watch’s serial number, you would navigate to that menu on the watch.

The zoom feature on the Apple Watch can be helpful, but this article can help you to unzoom if it seems like it’s stuck.
