Apple Watch: How to Use the World Clock

A Few Apple Watch App

Set Up for Left-Handers: The Digital Crown isn’t best placed for those folk who wear their watch on the right arm. However, you can have the Apple Watch flip its controls so that the crown works on the bottom left instead of top right. In the iPhone companion app go to General > Watch Orientation and then choose your preferred wrist and Digital Crown position.

Trim Notifications: By default, the Apple Watch will show any notification that appears on your iPhone, but you can turn each one off individually, to quell the digital noise. To do so, in the iPhone’s Apple Watch app menu tap Notifications and scroll down to ‘mirror iPhone alerts from’ and start turning off those annoying offenders.

Re-Open the Last Used App: Switching between apps is easy – you can jump back to the last used app just by double-tapping the Digital Crown.

Customizing the Watch Face: There’s a healthy if not mind-blowing selection of watch faces for the Apple Watch, but they’re helpfully customizable so you can add and remove details (complications) as you wish. Press and hold the watch face to cycle through the selection, and tap Customize to enter an editing mode. Swipe to the right to make the areas that can be customized appear in boxes. Tap the area you want to change, and then use the Digital Crown to scroll through options – this is where those third-party complications can be added. For the minimalist look however, most can be turned off if you prefer the minimalist look.

Put the Apple Watch in Power Reserve Mode: The watch is draining power too fast? Swipe up on the main watch screen to bring up the Control Center. The first icon displays current battery status. Press this to reveal the Power Reserve button.
