How to Disable Start-End Workout Reminders on Apple Watch

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.

That’s all there is to it!

Wrapping up

I’m, more or less, happy with watchOS 5. Some of the features that I have found commendable are the ability to use the Internet, walkie-talkie, and 7-day competition. Besides, the operating system runs more smoothly on the watch. Let us your thoughts about it and the features you would have liked to see in it.
