Change default Apple Watch timer duration?

I’d like to change it to 1 min, 2 min, 3 min, 5 min, and 20 min. Can I do that? If not any better timer apps to use on my Apple Watch?

I bought Due for the nagging reminders but find I’m increasingly using it for its configurable timers. I’d recommend you take a look.


Not a complete solution but at the bottom of the list of default timers should be 3 “recent” timers, so if you are setting a 4 minute timer for your Aeropress coffee every morning, that should likely appear at the bottom of the list.

I always use Due when steeping tea/coffee, doing laundry, and timing car street meters. Siri/Reminders isn’t loud enough. I can hear the Due alarm (I use Nautical Bells) through headphones hanging down a foot away from my ears.

Busy day, I like the idea of constantly reoccurring timers. I use Die mostly to remind me of medications, I need to play with the app a bit more to see if it’ll fit my use case.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is called a Freudian slip.


Well maybe I use the risk of dying as a reason to take my meds too
