To do this on the Apple Watch, Launch the Settings app, then tap General. Scroll down, tap Nightstand Mode and slide the switch to the On position.

Moving forward, you simply need to place your Apple Watch on its side while connected to a charger for Nightstand Mode to be activated.

Your watch will display the current time, date, next alarm, and battery percentage. Tap the screen, or press either of the physical buttons on the watch in order to display the current time after the screen turns off.

Once it does, you can use either the digital crown or the side button to quiet or snooze the alarm.
