If you own an Apple Watch, chances are it will great you into the new year with a notification, which shows fireworks on the clock face when tapped.
Apple Watch is one of the smartest smartwatches out there, and it’s a lot of fun too. It has a wide range of faces to chose from, allowing you to customize each one to your liking, great fitness features, and some other little things that make a big difference when compared with similar devices.
Surprise notifications are one of those little things that make the Apple Watch a great smartwatch, and you get them on various special occasions, such as to celebrate the new year. If you own an Apple Watch, you might want to check the notification area for a special message.
Happy New Year!
That’s right, Apple Watch wishes wearers a happy new year if it’s past 12 midnight where you are in the world. And, if you tap on the notification, it will show fireworks for a couple of seconds on the clock face you have set. If you don’t see the notification, you need to wait until after midnight, of course.
And it looks like the “Happy New Year” notification won’t go away so fast, which means that you will be able to show those fireworks to your friends and family too, so hurry up. It’s now 47 minutes past 12 for me, and I can still access it and tap it to see those cool fireworks on the clock face I set.
While the “Happy New Year” notification might go away sooner or later, remember that you can earn the “Ring in the New Year Challenge” special achievement on your Apple Watch if you close all three rings for seven days in a row throughout January 2018. Have fun, good luck, and happy new year!
