3 Bonus Apple Watch Tips & Tricks for Students

Set up Silent Alarms

If you’re in college, probably you must be living with somebody. Setting alarms on the phone can disturb your roommate. And you don’t want to be ruining your roommate’s morning with a loud noise.

I will recommend using your Apple Watch to set up Alarms instead of setting it on your phone. The Apple watch has silent alarms, so it will wake you up by vibrating on the wrist.

Steps to set up alarms on silent Apple Watch:

Silent mode on Apple Watch

To set up silent alarms on your apple watch, open the notification panel & turn on the silent mode. Another way to do this is via the Watch app on iPhone.

  1. Open the Watch app on your iPhone.
  2. Go to the ‘My Watch’ tab
  3. Select ‘Sound & Haptics’ option.
  4. Enable the silent mode.

Get Notifications

On-screen Notifications are useful, especially when you’re in a class. If you are getting text messages or calls on your phone, it’s not possible to take out the phone from your pocket. That’s why notifications are a wonderful way to get notified of what’s going. Easily get information related to who’s calling & texting.

To enable notifications follow these steps:

  1. First, pair the Apple Watch with your iPhone.
  2. Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.
  3. Tap My Watch, then tap Notifications.
  4. Then it shows up an interface to customize how some apps display notifications (Options include allow notifications, send to the notification center, Turn off notifications).

On the watch, access notification preference by swiping the screen left and tapping three dots. After this, you will be able to customize if you want to deliver the message quietly or permanently disable it.


The Apple Watch is powered by its official voice assistant called SIRI. The voice assistant SIRI is useful for navigating and performing various tasks. It is beneficial for students as it simplifies different tasks with the command of a voice.

For instance, you can set reminders to email your teacher, make calls with the command of a voice, play a song, perform calculations, create events, get the weather forecasts, activate DND, and more. Overall, it simplifies several tasks with the command of a voice.
