On your iPhone, do you enjoy using Shortcuts automations? The Apple Watch’s Shortcuts app allows you to run shortcuts right from your wrist. There’s no need to touch your iPhone because the shortcuts run on the Watch.

The Shortcuts app is available to Apple Watch users who are running watchOS 7 or higher. This is compatible with the iPhone’s Shortcuts app.

The Shortcuts app categorises and makes available on your wrist shortcuts that can be used on the Apple Watch. As a result, you won’t need to create separate Apple Watch shortcuts.

Shortcuts can be triggered from the Shortcuts app, as well as complications on the watch face. However, if you want to start the shortcut from the watch face, you’ll need to confirm it by tapping the “Run” button.

All of the Apple Watch shortcuts are stored in a separate folder in your Shortcuts Library. Open the “Shortcuts” app on your iPhone to get to it. Using the Spotlight search feature makes this simple. Swipe down on your home screen to find and select the Shortcuts app.

Now that you know what Apple Watch shortcuts are available, it’s time to put them to use. The Shortcuts app can be used to accomplish this.

It will run automatically if the shortcut is simple and does not require any input. However, if you need to enter something, you’ll be prompted to do so within the Shortcuts app.

It’s as simple as using the Apple Watch to activate shortcuts.

Although the Shortcuts app is simple to use, there is a faster way to activate shortcuts. This makes use of the complication on the watch face. In addition, you can now add multiple complications from the same app to the watch face using the new complications frame.

This means you can have up to eight shortcuts on your watch face (using the Infograph face).

Do you enjoy switching between dials throughout the day? Here’s how to use the Hotkey Automation feature on your Apple Watch to switch watch faces based on the time of day.

Did you know that the Shortcuts app can help you automate your Apple Watch? With some examples, here’s how to get started.

Have you ever wished that your Apple Watch would turn on Do Not Disturb mode as soon as you walk into a movie theatre? Would you like your Apple Watch to face to change automatically once a day? Apple Watch automations allow you to do all of this and more.

The Apple Watch now has some fantastic automation routines thanks to watchOS 7. The best part is that you don’t need any programming experience to set up or create these routines.

We’ll show you how to set up automations on your Apple Watch, as well as three examples of what you can do with them.

The Apple Shortcuts app is the epicentre of iOS automation, and it also includes everything you’ll need to set up Apple Watch automations. Unfortunately, iOS automations, unlike Siri Shortcuts, cannot be shared with others at the time of writing. This means we won’t be able to provide a download link for our favourite automations.

Instead, we’ll show you how to set up Apple Watch automations on your iPhone with a step-by-step guide.

To make an Apple Watch automation, decide what you want to automate and choose the appropriate triggers. Let’s start with something simple: every night at 10 p.m., put your Apple Watch on silent mode.

This is simple to set up if you follow these steps: Go to the Automation tab in the Shortcuts app. Here’s how to do it:

Your Apple Watch will now go into silent mode at 10 p.m. every night. If you want to turn silent mode in the morning, you can do so with second, similar automation.

Let’s take a look at some of the most useful Apple Watch automations you can set up now that we’ve looked at an example.

It’s easy to overlook the importance of starting workouts on your Apple Watch. The wearable has an automatic workout detection feature, but it isn’t always accurate. This is particularly true for low-intensity workouts like mobility exercises.

Fortunately, there’s an Apple Watch automation that can help with this:

Your Apple Watch will now start workouts based on your current location. In the first step, you can choose to Leave instead of Arrive to have this automation start when you leave a specific location, such as your home. So if you work from home and only go outside for a morning walk, for example, you can set your Apple Watch to start an outdoor walk workout every time you leave the house.

Changing watch faces is simple enough, but having your Apple Watch do it for you is even more convenient. Let’s look at how to change your Watch face regularly, as well as some other options for making this work.

To begin, make sure you’ve added, and customised Watch faces to your Apple Watch so you can work with them. Then, in the Shortcuts app, do the following:

Now sit back and enjoy the show as your watch face changes on its own. Set up similar automations with a different time in the second step if you want the watch face to change every few hours.

Instead of using the Time of Day trigger in the first step, you can use the Arrive or Leave triggers to change the watch face whenever you leave the house or arrive at a specific location.

Apple’s watch faces are sufficient to get you started, but there are a plethora of fantastic custom Apple Watch faces to choose from. You’ll be able to use a wider range of faces in your automations due to this.

Enabling Theater Mode (Cinema Mode in some regions) silences your Apple Watch and turns off the display until you touch it or press the Digital Crown. This is especially useful in movie theatres or other places where you don’t want to disturb others.

Here’s how you can use Shortcuts to enable theatre mode at specific locations automatically:

Create new automation using the Leave trigger and repeat the process to turn Theatre Mode off when you leave the location.

You could also use the Time of Day trigger to enable or disable Theater Mode automatically. This might be a good option for bedtime or if you have a scheduled meeting every weekday.

These are just a few examples of simple Apple Watch automations, but the possibilities are endless. You can try cool tricks like sending a message to someone each time you complete a workout and much more.

The automations we chose to focus on tasks that occur frequently, but with a little imagination, you can expand the capabilities of your Apple Watch. Don’t forget that the Apple Watch has a slew of other productivity-enhancing apps.

To help with this, go to Settings > [My Name] > iCloud and make sure “Shortcuts” is turned on, that your Apple Watch is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the iPhone, and that you don’t have an iCloud storage issue, and then contact Apple directly if you need any additional help. Cheers!

Button on the side: Underneath the Digital Crown is this flat oval button. Press it once to see the Dock (a list of recently used apps), twice to use Apple Pay, and once to turn your Watch on or off or make an emergency phone call.

Showering with an Apple Watch Series 2 or newer is fine, but we don’t recommend using soaps, shampoos, conditioners, lotions, or perfumes on it because they can harm the water seals and acoustic membranes. In addition, Water-resistance isn’t always present and can deteriorate over time.
