One nifty feature in watchOS 5 is automatic Start/End Workout reminders. These remind just in case you forgot to Start or End your Workout by pushing you a notification.

Follow along as we guide you through how to disable this feature in watchOS 5.

watchOS 5: How to disable Start/End Workout reminders

  1. On Apple Watch, head to Settings > General > Workout.
  2. After scrolling down just a little, you’ll see toggles for Start Workout Reminder and End Workout Reminder. These can be toggled off individually.

These notifications are super handy if you have a tendency to forget to use the Workout app to log workouts. However, if you don’t have an issue with this, you can turn this functionally off entirely on Apple Watch.
