    HI Everyone,

    What apps are you using for reminders, and notifications on your Apple Watch?

    I use OmniFocus for my tasks, Wunderlist for groceries (we have android and Windows devices in the household so cross platform syncing is required), and Due for reminders.

    Reminders nano will give you the reminders on the watch and is the best one out there

    I used Siri this morning to set a reminder. I said, "Hey Siri, remind me to go get medicine at lunch." Siri set up a reminder which said, "Go get medicine," and automatically set its time for noon.

    I like the stock reminder app and use Siri either on my watch or phone to add items to my grocery list, etc.

    Love it.

    I use 'Reminders on Watch' - it's free and works fairly well, but no option to create reminders or show completed. I may give Reminders Nano a try.

    I use Due. It lets you set recurring reminders and has some really useful auto-snooze options. I think the free version lets you auto-snooze for either one minute or one hour, but the paid version lets you choose 5, 10, 15, or 30 minutes, etc. I really like this feature because if something is urgent I can set it to keep nagging me every 5 minutes… or even every minute. If it's not so urgent I can set the auto-snooze for a longer period. When you get the reminder on your watch you can tap to mark done or reschedule. If you ignore or dismiss the reminder, it will remind you again at the next auto-snooze interval. It's easy to add reminders in the iPhone app, or you can use "Hey Siri, remind me to…" and Due will automatically set the reminder for you. Due also lets you set up custom timers you can access from the watch app. This has been one of my most useful (and frequently used) watch apps.

    My calendar app (Fantastical 2) also has a reminders feature that supports "Hey Siri," and my task manager (currently TickTick) offers reminders for tasks. Then there is also the stock Reminders app for iOS, so a dedicated reminder app isn't necessary for me. However I like using Due enough to keep using it for reminders. I guess I just prefer a separate reminders list (which tends to be very short) for things I absolutely need to be nagged about. My task and project lists are much longer, and I don't usually set reminders for them.

    You can can create Reminders on the :apple:Watch but you can't see completed Reminders.

    That's exactly what I do. I've never needed anything else.

    Wunderlist, although I wish they had a complication.
