How to check the weather on your Apple Watch

Like time, weather is something that a lot of people want to stay updated on as often as possible. Having it on your Apple Watch means quick information about temperature, precipitation, and even sunrise/sunset can be just a turn of the wrist away. What's more, thanks to Siri and the built-in Weather app, you can get more detailed information about any city in the world, and any day in the next week, with just a word or a few taps. Here's how!

How to check the weather on your Apple Watch with complications

You can set up your Apple Watch's clock face to show you a wealth of weather information. That way, any time you glance at your wrist, you'll be updated.

  1. Pick a clock face that allows for a good quantity of complications. (Utility is good for analog, Modular for digital.)
  2. Customize the clock face to show local weather, temperature, as well as sunrise/sunset and moon phases if they're of value to you.
  3. To change the location of the weather shown in the complication, use the Apple Watch for iPhone app.
  4. Tap any weather complication to launch the Weather app.

  2. Ask for the weather information that interests you. For example, "What's the weather?" "What's the weather in Cupertino?" "What's the weather in Cupertino next week?" or even, "Will I need a jacket tomorrow?"
