Fongo + Watch (Fongo 3.7.5+, iOS 8.2+)

Intro

As of Fongo 3.7.5 for iPhone we support Apple Watch with specific enhanced Notifications and a small Watch app.

Notifications

When Fongo is running in the background on your iPhone and your iPhone is currently not being used the Apple Watch will display enhanced Notifications to the user for the following events.

The notification events that can be performed on the Watch include those where actually Accepting, Calling or Viewing are not required (due to Apple Watch limitations).
If you do not currently have the Fongo app running in the background, you will be shown a simple notification that will not allow you to perform any actions on the Apple Watch.

Incoming Calls

Notification

When you receive an Incoming Call while the app is running in the background on the iPhone you will receive an enhanced notification on the Apple Watch with possible actions.
If the app is not running you will receive a basic notification where you must perform any actions on the iPhone.

Decline

You can decline the call directly from the Apple Watch, no need to take your phone out.

Message

If you are subscribed to Fongo SMS you will also have the option to decline the call and message the user back directly from the Apple watch.

Which will in turn give you the option to choose a canned response or dictate your own message.
