The one electronic gadget that I never regret buying is the Apple Watch. The watch is so sophisticated to use. However, my Apple Watch lacks some common features like mail. None of the mailing apps are available for Apple Watch. Being a Yahoo Mail user, I started my digging to use Yahoo Mail on my Apple Watch. And I have two solutions.

Another one is that I have to install third-party Yahoo Mail client apps on my watch. I have structured the article with these two methods. If you are a Yahoo Mail user, use the below guide to get the mail on your watch.
