Apple Watch alarm not waking me up fix
Here’s how to fix the Apple Watch alarm not working and failing to wake people up:
Users report that power cycling the Apple Watch can fix alarms not triggering at all. Meanwhile, disabling silent mode should fix the Apple Watch alarm with no sound error. Heavy sleepers can adjust the Sound & Haptics settings to make Apple Watch alarms louder and/or silent haptic alarms stronger.
Anyone using a silent alarm to not wake others, but still struggling after maxing out the haptic feedback settings, will need to wait on a new WatchOS update. Some users believe that Apple’s WatchOS 8 update made the vibration weaker; if that’s the case, the California tech giant could address the silent Apple Watch haptic alarm issue in a future software patch.
In recent gaming news, Fortnite is collaborating with Dune and Ghostbusters. PlayStation is also entering a collab, of sorts, by launching a God of War (2018) PC port.
