How to Disable Start-End Workout Reminders in watchOS 5 on Apple Watch

Often get distracted by the automatic alerts about the workouts or find them annoying? You can choose to completely turn off start/end workout reminders on your Apple Watch running watchOS 5. Let me demonstrate how it's done the quick way:

Many a time, I forget to kickstart or finish my workout in time. watchOS 5 has got a neat feature called “automatic reminders” to help me remain alerted about the workouts. And, I make the most of it stay tuned with the routine! But just in case, you aren’t forgetful like me, you may want to disable the start/end workout reminders in watchOS 5.

The one simple yet pretty helpful trick to extend the battery life of the Apple Watch is to allow only selected apps to bombard your Notification Center. The more peace your Watch has, the longer it will run between charges. Hence, if you don’t find the notifications about your workouts worth, it would be apt to put them off.
