How to Mirror Apple Watch to iPhone

A novelty allowed by iOS 16 and watchOS 9 is mirroring for Apple Watch: in other words, the possibility of controlling the Apple Watch from the iPhone, exploiting it to the scope of the phone’s assistive functions, such as “Switch control”, an option that could be interesting in some areas (e.g, for demonstrations) and for some users with motor or visual difficulties.
