    Is there any way to make my iPhone's alarm time appear on the watch?

    I think they alarms on the watch and phone are unrelated, so i don't know if this is possible.

    I was a bit dissapointed to hear this.

    If I use Siri on the Watch to set an Alarm for 6am, it doesn't set an alarm on my phone.

    I'll have to see if my watch is loud enough to wake me up, but I can't imagine it being as loud as my iPhone is.

    Yes I wish the watch face would show the alarm time or the timer, if it's set. I prefer setting the timer using the app or Siri rather than having it as a complication on the watch face, and once it's set it would be nice if it could show up on the watch face (sort of how it shows up on the lock screen when it's set on the iPhone).

    Alarms set on the iPhone do send notifications to the watch - I have a 9:00 AM alarm that I setup years ago on my iPhone, and get the notification on my watch. I am able to dismiss it on my watch, which also dismisses it on my iPhone. I have heard that this happens whether you're wearing the watch or not, but since I have my watch silenced, I don't know whether the taptic notification works when you're not wearing it.

    Alarms set on the watch do not transfer to the iPhone, as far as I can tell.

    You can set up alarms with the same repeat function as on the phone. As I sleep in my watch I've just switched over to the watch completely now. The first week I had the phone with a backup alarm 15 minutes later, just in case but I didn't need it. The watch alarm is fantastic.

    Does it have an audible alarm or just vibrate?

    Or is it intelligent, so if your wearing it, it vibrates, if it's charging, its audible?

    Just tried it. It vibrates and is “quietly” audible.

    Both. It triple taps your wrist whilst beeping at you. I'm a very heavy sleeper and this thing wakes me up.

    I just noticed this the other day but when an alarm from your phone goes off and you have the watch on it goes to the phone too. I don't wear my watch at night so I didn't notice it til I snoozed and put my watch on one morning.

    I wish there was an option for the watch to beep on the hour (like a normal digital watch), that would be cool.

    You mean the phone alarm goes to the watch?

    Is 24 hr time available for setting alarms on the watch?

    I charge mine in the morning after getting up, while showering, getting dressed, feeding the cat, etc. All up about an hour before I leave for work. That easily takes it through the day and the following night, with power to spare.

    EDIT This is my night watch face:

    It prevents disturbing bright flashes when I move around and the display comes on.

    I do the exact same thing and I just leave the regular watch face. The battery on this thing is fantastic. I have slept with mine on every night since the 24th. Charge it for an hour or two in the morning (sometimes i wake up early to watch the news) and it has yet to die on me. That being said... I don't really play with mine. I use it if I need it, but sometimes i'll go an hour or two without looking at it.
