How to set ‘Taptic Chimes’ on Apple Watch to produce hourly sound and haptic motions

Apple Watch users can enable ‘Taptic Chimes’ on the smartwatch to produce a sound or/and haptic motion on the hour.

As an accessibility feature is very useful for individuals with special needs to get hourly time checks but it is also for anyone who gets too indulge in a task/ activity and loses track of time. At the unveiling of the feature in 2019, Apple’s VP of Technology explained that “when enabled, on the hour, you will feel a silent taptic on your wrist. And if the sound is on, you’ll hear an audible chime.”

We have composed an easy-to-follow guide for you to turn on Taptic Chimes on your Apple Watch.
