Why won’t my Apple Watch take a screenshot?

Since the release of iOS 10 and the accompanying watchOS 3, the ability to take screenshots on an Apple Watch is now disabled by default. This is quite annoying, but when you have done it the first time, the Settings menu will remember your settings and you won’t have to do it again. Launch the Watch app on the iPhone that has been linked. Make sure that the tab labelled “My Watch” is selected (bottom left).
