How to speed up the Apple Watch

I’ve been back on the Apple Watch for the last few weeks and I’m reminded of the little things you can do to speed up your experience across any of the models.

Luckily there’s only really one set of changes you need to make. Within the accessibility settings on the watch app on your iPhone you can change

  • Reduce transparency to ON
  • Reduce motion to ON
  • Auto play message effects to OFF

You’ll immediately notice the improvement in navigating around the UI and even on a series 5 or 6 it’s nice to reduce some of those animations and get straight to where you want to be.
