How to clear all notifications at once from the Apple Watch

Take the one-fell-swoop approach to deleting notifications from the Apple Watch's Notification Center.

One of the best features of the Apple Watch is delivering pulses and chirps and chimes to your wrist, saving you from needing to pull your iPhone out of your pocket or dig it out of your purse to check an alert.

Like the iPhone, the Apple Watch has a Notification Center that you can access by swiping down from the top edge of the screen. It saves your alerts, letting you swipe on each to delete it. If you'd like to clear out the Notification Center entirely, however, there's a much quicker way than deleting each notification one by one.

To clear all notifications, you must first press the Digital Crown to show the watch face.

Next, swipe down to call up the Notification Center.

Next, force touch on the screen.

Lastly, tap the X to clear all notifications.
