With Watch Keypad, you are now able to call everyone directly from your Apple Watch, without having that person in your contacts. You are able to actually 'type' a phone number on your Apple Watch and call & text.
Your phone numbers which you have called and/or text will be automatically saved onto your iPhone, and are visible on the iPhone and the Apple Watch when in range with your iPhone.
You can call and text all the recents from within the recents table view.
You are also able to add the Watch Keypad Glance, this will allow you to initiate a call or text even faster. Furthermore, you are also able to add a Watch face complications, also to be able to initiate a call or text even faster.
Watch Keypad is a native app for watchOS 2. This means that it will run directly on the Apple Watch itself instead of running the app of the iPhone. To initiate a call or text someone, your iPhone has to be connected, because the Apple Watch needs the cellular network to connect to the desired number.
