When we ask our Apple Watch to show us directions to go somewhere, our watch will accompany along the route with taps on the wrist to get our attention. In addition, when we program the same route on our iPhone, the Apple Watch will also take care of the warnings.

Notices According to the Use of our iPhone

These warnings, basically consisting of two different vibration patterns when we have to turn right or left, are tremendously useful in most situations. However, in some cases, this double warning, especially if we are already consulting our iPhone to follow the indications, it is of more. Fortunately, Apple allows us to choose when the Apple Watch will give us directions. The steps to adjust this preference are as follows:

  1. We open the app Watch on our iPhone.
  2. We came in Maps.
  3. Under Turn notices, we activate or deactivate the notices for when we go by car, by car with CarPlay or walking.

In this way we can, for example, deactivate by car with CarPlay, if we use the car browser, with their spoken announcements, to receive directions.

Without a doubt, that our Apple Watch can warn us when we have to turn while we are walking through a city is very useful. Meanwhile, and that is already a matter of personal taste, to warn us while we are driving may be perhaps too much. However, we can choose when we want to receive notices.
