Turn off the sound (or lower the volume)

By default, the sound is on Apple Watch is on. At first, it's fun to listen to all the unique melodies and alerts that Apple has built into its watch. However, it can get annoying after a while, especially if you have a lot of messages. If you usually keep your iPhone on silent, you might want to do the same with your watch.

To mute your watch, simply swipe up from the bottom, then tap the alarm icon in Control Center.

To simply turn down the volume, go to Settings, then Sounds & Vibration on your watch or in the Watch app, then use the volume icons to adjust accordingly. You can also turn on Silent mode to silence notifications.

Set up the clock to unlock your Mac

If you have a Macbook, especially one without Touch ID, you should set this feature up. Whenever you wake up your Mac by lifting the lid of your MacBook or pressing a key on your iMac, it will immediately unlock as long as your Apple Watch is unlocked and on your wrist.

Turn off notifications for apps that you don't need

By default, Apple Watch displays many notifications, especially if you have many notifications set up on your iPhone. Fortunately, controlling them directly on the watch is quite simple.

Adjusting this setting is key to fully enjoying your Apple Watch.
