How to setup medication reminders on Apple Watch running WatchOS 9

Configurare noua (How To)


Apple Watch is the ultimate device for a healthy life. And it has got even better with the new watchOS 9 update that adds native medication reminders. The new iOS 16 and watchOS 9 updates have made it easier for people to track their medications. You can now add medicines, vitamins, and supplements in the Health app. Alongside, you can also set custom reminders for the watch to alert you when it’s the time to take medicines.

These reminders can specifically be helpful for the elderly and people who are on a long medication or have to take multiple doses throughout the day. The watch would come to your rescue, keeping you from forgetting the dosage.


Your iPhone needs to be running the latest iOS 16. And your Apple Watch needs to be running the new watchOS 9. You can either update to the developer beta now (quite unstable), wait for the public beta, or install them when they’re publicly available for everyone.
