The log screen on the Apple Watch allows you to log a cache right from your watch. The options and process mirrors what you would do to log a cache on your iPhone. You can toggle Send Now to upload the log immediately to geocaching.com or to store it locally on your iPhone as a pending log. You can toggle Draft to control whether the log is stored as a Draft once uploaded to the geocaching.com site. The default log type is Found It, but you can select Did't Find It, Write Note or Needs Maintenance by selecting the log type and scrolling the watch dial. The Message for your log, when tapped, will open a dictation window where you can speak your log entry. Tap Save and your log will be sent to your phone and based on the Send Now/Draft options will remain on your iPhone until uploaded or immediately be uploaded to geocaching.com
