While you initially love how each time your new devices buzzes as it delivers a notification, soon a time follows when the notifications start to get annoying, and even more so when they come off the downloaded or one of the built-in applications.
However, users have the customization facility before them when it comes to notifications, and here’s how you can do it:
On your iPhone, make your way to the Apple Inc. Watch app and look out for the notifications tab. Following this, you will be presented with a list of apps that notify you when needed. However, it is at the top of the screen where the problem lies for you.
The Notification Indicator, and the Notification Privacy, are both toggled-on by default, and this is where the change is needed. The former delivers a red dot on the top of your screen to notify you regarding unread notifications while the Notification Privacy ensures all your personal data is kept at a distance unless you wish to make changes.
All you have to do is disable the button on the top of your screen, and your watch would no longer bother you with useless alerts.
Staying in the notifications menu, you will find a section that is dedicated to the stock apps on your watch. Among these, text messages, emails, and the fitness tracking apps are incorporated, which can be customized precisely to your liking; be that a tiny little vibration, or a sound that alerts the whole room, it is all down to the way you want things to be.
To change the notification style, look up the notification menu on the Apple Watch app, and head over to Messages. In the following menu, tap Custom, and you will then have the option of toggling-on or off the sound.
As for the downloaded application, you may well find it nerve-wrecking since you will be notified merely every now and then off one app or another. To change the way things stand, make your way to the Notification tab in the Settings app on your iPhone and customize notifications to your liking.
In case you wish to disable these notifications altogether, look up the Notifications option in the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and make your way to the bottom. Here, you will see the list of apps you have downloaded, along with the option of disabling notifications; thereafter, feel free to make the necessary changes based on your mood.
Things seem to have been tailored precisely to match the desires of the users, and you can work your way with the notifications and alerts the way you want to.
