How can you Truly Claim Something as your own after you have it?
I’m not referring to the watch band you choose or the face you decide to wear on any given day. But let’s speak about customising the software so that you have the apps you want, where you want them, and have your favourite contacts and frequently-needed information in an accessible spot. Of course, such things are important. And receive enough alerts to be useful but not enough to make you want to take the device off.
After using the watch for a month, I discovered that by adjusting these and other options. The wearable could be much more helpful.
While some of this may be done directly on the watch, the majority is handled by the companion Apple Watch app, which is located on your iPhone and was added there by Apple as part of a recent iOS upgrade. (It is the one with the black emblem showing the watch from the side.) So, for a fast tutorial on customising the Apple Watch, click here.
If you need even more details, you can access Apple’s user manual here or in the Watch app on the iPhone (down to the bottom under General/About). It’s still a lot to read, even if it’s just 96 pages long.
The Apple Watch’s Settings
From a panel you temporarily access by swiping up from the bottom of the watch screen, known as a “Glance,” you may rapidly set a few items. One of them adjusts a few options, including muting the watch and switching it to Airplane or Do Not Disturb mode.
Launching the Settings app on the watch is necessary for more adjustments. Here, you can adjust the notifications’ loudness and how hard the watch “taps” your wrist when an alert comes on. When you lift your wrist, you may choose whether the watch should instantly wake up and show the time or restart running the last app you used.

The iPhone app for Apple Watch, which is independent but largely mimics the phone’s own Settings app, is required for practically everything else. You need to be in the “My Watch” part of the app. Which can remain accessed from the far-left icon in the bottom row of the app.
Some of the main things it regulates are listed below:
You may select which applications to display on the watch by scrolling below Apple’s built-in apps (anything below Workout) on the primary My Watch page. You may not want to clog up the small space on your screen with these third-party iPhone applications. But they provide some watch functions.
For instance, I maintained other news applications like the one from the New York Times even though I uninstalled the AP Mobile app from my test watch since I found it to load pages slowly.
You can also decide whether or not all of your iPhone applications with watch functionality will automatically appear on the watch by going to General in the My Watch section.
The first menu option in the iPhone app for the Apple Watch is called App Layout. And it allows you to organise the watch’s display. To avoid constantly pan across the little screen in search of your most-used app icons, you may put them closer to the centre here.
You may find it infuriating to have your watch touch you every few minutes, but you may also find it annoying to miss something important. You may select which third-party applications will provide notifications by browsing the list in the Notifications option. These notifications may occasionally be watch-specific or “mirroring” the alerts you receive on your iPhone. It’s worth noting that activating fewer notifications may increase your watch’s battery life.
