5 Strategies for Maximizing the Use of Your Apple Watch Calendar

Unlocking the Power of Apple Watch’s Travel Time Feature

Ever found yourself sprinting to a meeting, only to arrive flustered and apologizing for your tardiness? Well, breathe a sigh of relief because the Apple Watch has your back! With its nifty Travel Time feature, it’s like having your personal assistant gently nudge you out the door, so you’re always on the dot.

Setting It Up is a Breeze

First things first, in order for this lifesaver to work its magic, your event needs a location. Punch that in, and like a trio of best buddies, your Apple Watch, Calendar, and Maps band together. Their mission? To scope out your current spot, chew over traffic and transportation options, and chime in with the perfect departure time.

How to Get Rolling

Ready to give it a whirl? Fire up the Calendar app on your Apple Watch. Spot that plus (+) icon in the upper-right corner? Tap it. Next, spill the beans – your event details, that is. Then, hit Travel Time, and give the toggle next to it a friendly tap to bring it to life.

Not Feeling the GPS Vibes?

Got trust issues with GPS? No problem. Manually setting your launch pad is as easy as pie. Dive into an event on your Calendar app, tap ‘Edit > Travel Time > Starting Location’, and key in where you’ll be kicking off your journey.

A Word to the Wise

Now, before you get too trigger-happy with Travel Time, there are a couple of caveats to keep in mind. Planning an all-day fiesta or love blasting out multiple reminders? Travel Time might just sit this one out, as it’s got a few no-go zones like “All Day” events and a cap on reminders.
