Apple Watch: How to Set Alarms

Apple Watch includes the Alarm app for setting alarms. This app enables you to set as many alarms as you need to be set on directly on Apple Watch. You can choose what days of the week you want the alarm to repeat. You can enable or disable the snooze function (this lets you get a few more minutes before the alarm rings again). You can name the alarm in order to identify it easily. After setting an alarm you can set it On or Off as needed.
