Your Apple Watch can send you a lot of notifications every day, many of which come from the Activity app. Whether your watch is reminding you to stand, letting you know that you’ve completed a goal, or alerting you to an particular achievement that you’ve reached, the Activity app is the source of many different bits of information.
But it also sends you a weekly summary of your activity, which, depending upon the way you exercise, could be unwanted, or maybe even a little disheartening. Fortunately the Activity notifications on your Apple watch can be adjusted, and you can even turn them off. Our tutorial below is going to show you where to find the setting for the Weekly Summary notification on your Apple Watch so that you can disable it.
