Most seamless way of Apple Watch as capture tool?

I don't use it often but I purchased Braintoss ($2.99) which comes with a Watch app. You can set it to go to your email, or the email address of your list manager's inbox if your app has that feature. It's useful when I need it.
Really liked that app for iOS but unfortunately I cannot trust it. So many messages are being stuck in queue or failed. Have reported but no solution. Still think my solution above is better though. Thanks for the tip if you like the app and it actually works I can see that it is useful.

Thanks for mentioning that, you have to trust your tools. I do not use it often so I guess that's why I haven't experienced a problem with it.

I'd recommend checking out Drafts.app - probably one of the best capture tools for Apple watch.

They also have ios apps, a Mac app, and a limited browser plugin.
Somehow Drafts and I have never clicked. It feels like an inbox for my inbox and it is not as good at extracting information from other sources as the apps I use a lot. For example, Bear does an amazing job of extracting text, formatting and images from web pages and translating into markdown.

EDIT: Found it: https://braintoss.freshdesk.com/sup...9588-how-do-i-change-the-format-of-the-email-

I just bought this app to try it out. Is there a way to remove the [Brain Toss] from the beginning of the subject when it sends? That's kind of annoying.

I use drafts as my go to capture tool on my Macs, Watch, iPhone and iPad

The drafts watch app has a complication that looks like a microphone. tapping it begins recording directly for as long as you care to speak.
The current release requires an additional tap, but Greg Pierce is working on a solution to that.

I use a combination of Hey Siri remind me and drafts capture.
Drafts is useful for me because it houses a kind of mind sweep and incubate processing center. I can send the item anywhere: to email, to a reminder list, archive it in Drafts, tag in drafts as incubate in various categories (essentially creating multiple incubates by category).

Drafts has integration with about everything, including Todoist. It has full coverage of the Apple ecosystem

Hope this helps
