Start a timer to wash your hands

You can time your hand-wash routine on your Wear OS smartwatch with the hand-wash timer. The timer runs for 40 seconds to match The World Health Organization’s recommendation.

After your timer goes off, you’ll get a notification to wash your hands again in three hours. If you ignore the notification, it won’t continue to remind you to wash your hands.

Start a timer

  1. If your watch’s screen is dim, tap it to wake it up.
  2. To open the list of apps, press the Power button.
  3. To start the timer, tap hand-wash timer Hand wash.
  4. Your watch will vibrate when your time is up.

Tip: You can add the hand-wash timer to your watch face or set it as a tile on your watch.
