    i must have palmed it.
    When you palm it, and if you have snooze option turned on it would be nice to have snooze activated. Then the alarm would go off again in 10 min. But it doesn’t go to snooze when you palm it.
    Sucks.
    I overslept by 1 hour. Lol

    Ouch! lol

    Well, been there, done that... :p I never sleep with the watch on because it's too easy to turn off an alarm and go right back to sleep again. I take off the watch, then have an iphone alarm go off in the next room and wake me, so I have to get out of bed to turn it off.

    Man, what a grouch! lol maybe you should have slept an hour longer today eh?! ;)

    I started setting an alarm on the phone for 1 min after the watch alarm. So I will have to turn that off when I wake up.

    Careful though... If you wear the watch, iphone alarms will be mirrored to it and you will be able to "palm it away", and you might not even remember doing it when you wake up later - perhaps a long time later! ;)

    Thanks!
    I just turned off push alert.
    is this a new feature on ios 12 + watchos 5? For some reason, I never noticed it was there.

    No... iPhone alarms have always mirrored to the watch, since day one. Sadly not the other way around though, unless it's changed with wOS 5; I haven't had reason to check yet.

    That said, Apple could do a little more work with its cross-device interoperability in general, methinks. After all, they've got the money. :p
