Disable annoying notifications on the Apple Watch
It doesn't take long to become overwhelmed by notifications on the apple watch.
The constant chirping and vibrating throughout the day could drive a person mad, but you can easily pick and choose which notifications you want to show up on your wrist.
Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and tap Notifications.
Here, you'll see a list of all the apps and services that have been buzzing your wrist.
To disable notifications from third party apps, scroll down the notifications menu and switch off the app you don't wanna hear from.
The top section of the menu is for notifications from Apple's apps.
These are the apps that come preloaded on the watch such as activity tracking, text messages, and emails.
The apps also have more customization options than the third party ones.
Say you only wanna receive a light buzz when a text message comes through instead of that annoying chirping sound.
Tap messages, select custom, and toggle the sound switch from on to off.
Or maybe you don't want to be reminded to stand every hour, you can tap activity and toggle stand reminders off.
I turned a lot of the notifications off, especially those from third party apps, but everyone has a different preference.
You should take some time to explore the notifications menu, and customize alerts to your liking.
