Like anyone, you have notifications that are important to you. But often they arrive at times when it’s inconvenient — or impossible — to reach for your phone. With Apple Watch, the information you care about most comes right to your wrist.
YOU’LL KNOW IT, WHEN YOU FEEL IT.
When a notification or alert arrives, a gentle tap lets you know right away. Then a quick glance at your watch tells you if it’s something you need to respond to promptly — or not.
Be alerted with a tap, then raise your wrist to see who it’s from and to read the message.
When an email arrives, you can quickly see the sender and subject. Then tap to read it in full.
Apple Watch shows you invitations, lets you know what’s up next, and alerts you when it’s time to leave for another event.
Get alerts and encouraging messages that keep you motivated to meet your fitness goals.
See who’s calling and answer right on your watch, or cover it with your hand to dismiss. You can ask Siri to return the call later.
Hey Siri, call Allison back
