How to enter passwords on Apple Watch with voiceover

watchOS & Apple Watch Apps

Hello everyone,
I am using Apple Watch S4 with watch OS 601, (the latest software as of now). I am trying to enter the password for my WIFI. As I am fully blind and do not know the alphabets or numbers/symbols etc, I am unable to scribble my password.
Is there any way I can key in my password without sighted help?
Thank you.

You should be able to do it from within the watch app on your phone if you even have to do that. When I first got my watch and paired it, I think I turned wifi on from within the watch app on the phone and it just connected since it saw that my phone was connected to the network.

This seems broken. I tried getting an app from the new watch App Store and it asked for me to type in my Apple ID password as with the OP, it seemed to talk to my iPhone and the option was there to type, but I couldn't activate the button on the iPhone screen. This may have been fixed recently but I'm still a little disappointed with the bugs that remain on the Apple Watch such as not voicing some complications which has hung around for years.

Hello. Your watch will mirror your phone's wifi setting but only on 2.4ghz networks. It's not duel band so you'll need to go into your phones wifi settings and connect to a 2.4ghz network and your watch should be set for that even if you want to connect your phone to a 5ghz network.
