Of course, if you have to set your alarm early, your partner may not need to get up yet. Even if you take a nap on the plane, for example, it is useful not to disturb others with your alarm clock. That is why it is possible to set a silent alarm on your Apple Watch. Instead of sound, you only feel small taps on your wrist. That is how it works.

  1. First set an alarm on your watch;
  2. Open the Alarm Clock app on your Apple Watch (an orange icon with a clock);
  3. Tap on ‘New alarm clock’ and set the working time;
  4. Tap Set.

To then turn this into a silent alarm, simply switch on silent mode:

  1. Swipe up from the watch face on your Watch screen;
  2. Press the bell icon to turn on silent mode.
