How to Create an Alarm on Apple Watch Series 3, 2, and 1

No longer wish to wake up late in the morning or want to hit the bed on time? It's time to set up and manage alarms on your Apple Watch Series 3, 2 or 1 so that you are able to get up and also go to bed at the right time. Head over to this straightforward guide to getting started!

Apple Watch Alarm app is entirely different from the one on an iPhone. If you set the alarm on iPhone and have your Apple Watch on the wrist while sleeping, then the iPhone will divert the alarm call to Apple Watch, so that you don’t have to manage two devices right from the bed. In case you don’t have an iPhone near you while sleeping, then you can also create an alarm on the Apple Watch itself.

The Apple Watch has a built-in Alarm app to do this job. Personally, an alarm on an Apple Watch is more promising than an alarm on an iPhone. That’s because sometimes we need a pinch to wake up on time, rather than music that fuels the sleep. Here we have mentioned a guide to help you create an alarm on the Apple Watch, have a look.
