How to Disable “Time to Stand” Reminders on Apple Watch from iPhone

Tired of Time to Stand notification on your Apple Watch? Then follow these simple steps to disable it using your iPhone.

The Apple Watch is indeed a great gadget to have on the wrist to get notifications for health monitoring, steps walked, and many other things. The only problem is that it is yet not that smart to know when to notify a user with a certain message. It can tell you to stand and start walking while you are in the middle of something important.

Just for an example, if you are in a meeting or in a cinema, where you won’t stand and walk every hour; the Apple Watch will tap you on your wrist asking to stand up and walk. This is ridiculous as well as irritating at times. Thankfully, Apple has provided us with an option to disable such notification.
