apple watch alarm

Just like your iPhone’s alarms app, Alarms On Apple Watch works in the same way. iPhone has an alarm clock, stopwatch and a timer, Apple Watch also has all the same built-in apps which work in the same way. But what if your iPhone is far away from you? Or you don’t wake up from the music? Apple watch helps in getting you up on time because you are wearing it.

iPhone alarm clock vs Apple Watch alarm clock

The Apple watch alarm clock is completely different from the alarm clock of your iPhone. Apple Watch’s alarm clock will not show you the alarms set on the iPhone’s alarm clock, and vice versa.

iPhone alarms work and collaborate with Apple Watch alarms. For example, if your iPhone alarms go off and your Apple Watch is not on your wrist, only iPhone’s alarm will alert you. In this way, you can save yourself from silencing two devices.

If you are having your Apple Watch on your wrist, the iPhone’s alarm will push through the Apple Watch and wake you up. If you happen to snooze or dismiss the alarm, it will silence the alarms on both the devices.

Also, you can create different alarms on both your devices for better functioning. If by chance, your iPhone is away from you or you don’t want it nearby, you can set alarms on your Apple Watch. It will send you wrist notifications so that you wake up on time.

Ways to create and manage alarms on Apple Watch

There are different ways by which you can set alarms on your Apple Watch. You can set, edit and delete the alarms according to your wish. Set up notifications, sounds and timer as and when you like.

Wake up with the help of Siri

You can command Siri to set an alarm for you. It is by far the simplest and easiest way to set an alarm clock.

Just look at the watch face and say ‘Hey Siri’. To set an alarm, say ”Hey Siri, set an alarm for 6 AM” or ” Hey Siri, set repeating alarm for 6 AM”. The alarm will go off every day. If you do not want to set alarms for the weekend, simply say ”Hey Siri, set my alarm for weekdays at 6 AM”.
