Wrist watch with alarm function

Apple watch alarm clock

Let’s talk about the Apple Watch here. In fact, the Apple Watch has an alarm clock function. Many people may not have discovered that the Apple Watch has this feature or does not need it. Then I will briefly tell you about the Apple Watch. Where is the alarm function turned on.

How to Use the Alarm function

You can set multiple alarms on your Apple Watch. As we mentioned, the Alarm app on Apple Watch is completely separate from the Alarm app on the iPhone. However, if you have an alarm set on your iPhone and you’re wearing your Apple Watch when it goes off, the watch will alert you and allow you to snooze or dismiss it.

To open the Alarm app on your watch, press the digital crown to access the app menu screen and tap the Alarm app icon.

To give the alarm a name, tap “Label” on the New Alarm screen. Because it’s not easy to type on the small watch screen, you are prompted to speak your label. The text then displays on the screen. If the text is right, tap “Done”. If the label didn’t turn out right, you can tap “Cancel” and then tap “Label” on the New Alarm screen to try again.
