See the time on your nightstand
Apple Watch becomes a convenient bedside alarm clock while it’s charging.
Set up as a nightstand clock. Connect Apple Watch to its charger, then set Apple Watch on its side, buttons facing up.
Check the time by your bedside. To see the time, tap the display or lightly nudge Apple Watch. Even nudging or tapping the table might work—try it.
Use Apple Watch as an alarm clock. If you set an alarm using the Alarm Clock app , Apple Watch in nightstand mode will gently wake you.
When the alarm sounds, press the side button to turn it off, or press the Digital Crown to snooze for another 9 minutes.
