Apple Watch is the perfect device for quickly glancing at the things you need to do today or to fill you in on your plans for the weekend. It is also a useful device for quickly setting up a reminder without needing to pull out an iPhone.

While much of the setup for Calendars is done on iPhone, you can use Apple Watch to respond to invites, add a quick event, and get alerts to remind you when to leave for your next appointment.

Using the Calendar App

The Calendar App on Apple Watch is tied to Apple's native Calendar app on iOS, which is also compatible with OS X. I sync my Calendar app with Google Calendar, but it is compatible with a number of services, like Exchange, Facebook, Yahoo, and remote servers via CalDAV. In order to use the Calendar app on Apple Watch, you must be using it in some form on iPhone.

Looking at the squished text in those "screencaps" is painful...

Okay, you say that I should be able to add location based reminders on the watch and I kinda remember having done so but when I try it now I get " The calendar that tracks your reminders doesn't support location based reminders"

I've tried removing various calendars from the watch to the point, I think, of only having the Apple calendar app ... I've tried removing various calendars from the watch to the point, I think, of only having the Apple calendar app Anyone have any suggestions?

MacRumors: thanks for posting these occasional "How To" articles.

Despite much of this information being available elsewhere, the Apple Watch is new enough -- and different enough -- that many of us are still working our way through use-cases and techniques. Your articles provide both guidance and a forum for peer-to-peer conversation.

What I really want to know is has anyone actually used the watch to set a location based reminder successfully?

I've had cataract surgery and wear glasses and absolutely NO problem reading these caps or the watch. You absolutely need to visit an optometrist or ophthalmologist. I'm concerned you have some serious vision issues that should be checked out. Good luck.

Absolutely agreed. I think they are great and save me lots of time searching elsewhere.

Squishing text into a narrow six-letter wide collumn is what looks so painful about it. Not the font size itself.

Siri is great for adding reminders when it is available. When it is not available, there are apps like AddReminder on the app store that allow to type reminders.
