NameDrop is a new approach for watchOS 10 Apple Watch wearers who want to share contacts without the hassle of going into your contacts app.

Think of the ease with which AirDrop lets you transfer files or photos; NameDrop offers that level of ease for your contact information.

It’s a significant improvement over their prior model, which I think we all agree was cumbersome, and unecessary.
