    I am new to the forum and thinking about a watch that can vibrate every 15 minutes. Is there a limit on how many alarms I could set with Apple watch?

    I heard if you set 1970 different alarms, the AW will become bricked.

    I haven't found a limit yet. I've had maybe ten different alarms, probably more.

    Why so many? Sometimes, on a business trip, I'd get to the hotel, sit down, and immediately set an alarm just in case I fall asleep before the next event on my schedule. Later, I neglect to delete the alarm.

    Is it important to be precise about the times?

    I reason I ask is that one thing you could do is keep reusing a 15 minute timer. it takes me just a few second to cancel the alarm and start a new one, but over a day you would drift away from an exact schedule...

    I just want to time myself and notify myself every 15 minutes have past.
    For both time management and so people do not have to wait too long.

    I tried the fitbit, but they surprised me with a 8 alarm limit.

    And those alarms could set to just vibrate once, right?
    Or vibrate then tap to dismiss/snooze?

    I have thought of the 15 min timer, but I need to be precise to be at xx:00, xx:15, xx:30, xx:45 from 8:45 to 4:45.

    Vibrate with Dismiss & Snooze button, just like on iPhone.

    If you want it to vibrate only once. You could try Reminders (on iPhone of course but it will also notify you on the Watch). Just have it remind you at 1.00, 1.15, 1.30 etc. I'm not sure if there's a delay but time-based reminders like this there shouldn't be.

    Or there might be some apps for this particular purpose.
