One of the most important features on any smartwatch is its ability to display notifications, so you can stay informed without needing to look at your phone.

By default, the Apple Watch mirrors most of the iPhone’s notifications. That’s convenient, but if you don’t clear them occasionally, they do tend to accumulate.

Whether you want to selectively delete notifications one at a time or clear them all at once, you can manage your notifications with just a few taps.

Here’s how to do it.
