How to fix Apple Watch responding slowly issue


There are two methods to enable “Reduce motion” option, and we are going to show you both.


Method No.1: Do it from your iPhone

To enable this option from your iPhone, do the following:

  • Open the Apple Watch on your iPhone
  • Tap General
  • Next, tap on Accessibility
  • Click on Reduce motion
  • Toggle the switch next to it until it turns green (which means it’s enabled)



Method No.2: Do it from your Apple Watch

You can enable “Reduce motion” using your Apple Watch, and here is how:

  • Navigate to Settings
  • Tap General
  • Next, tap on Accessibility
  • You will see “Reduce motion” there, so just toggle it


Reduce motion limits animations of the user interface, which is why the Apple Watch won’t respond slowly anymore. We showed you both methods to enable this option, so you choose the one that is more convenient for you. You can always turn the option off if you change your mind, just follow the same steps as the ones you saw above, and toggle “Reduce motion”.
