How to set multiple timers on an Apple Watch

Why time only one task when you can time all of them?

My Apple Watch saved the timer day several times while I was cheffing it up in the kitchen. When I put a dish in the oven, I can set a timer on my wrist and forget about it until the silent vibration alerts me that it’s time to take my dish out.Why time only one task when you can time them all?

Nevertheless, it’s most likely that you’ll need more than one timer if you’re preparing more than one pot. For your cooking needs, or really any other need, here’s how to set up multiple timers on an Apple Watch.

1. Make sure you have watch IOS 8 downloaded to your Apple Watch 3 or newer.

The latest software update adds the ability to set up multiple timers in the Apple Watch’s native timer app. Currently, watchOS 8 is only available via a public or developer beta, which means you must also have iOS 15 beta installed on your iPhone. Check back later this fall for the general release of watchOS 8 and iOS 15.

2. Head to your Timer app.

Pressing the Digital Crown will display all the apps you have on your watch. Timer apps are usually located near Stopwatch apps on the screen, but yours may look different. There are a couple of similar-looking icons, so make sure you select the right one.

3. Tap on “Custom Timer.”

You’ll see a small menu of preset timers when the app opens. You can also set a custom timer, which runs for the amount of time you specify in your first timer. Simply tap that and set the timer.

If you need a timer, you can name it using Siri. I assure you that naming it is better than having a timer go off and not knowing what to do.

4. Hit “Start” on your first timer, then repeat the process.

Once you have more than one countdown running, repeat these steps for each timer you wish to set. Once you have more than one running, all of your countdowns should appear in list form.

I prefer to use my Apple Watch in quiet mode so that my timers vibrate when they’re done. You can, however, set your timers to beep when they expire if you don’t want Silent Mode turned on.

Set your timer and get ready to cook! Wash your clothes! Bathtub bubbles from your scrubbing! Previously, household chores overlapped in such a precise manner.
