Key Highlights

  • The Google Calendar app is not available for Apple Watch.

The Apple Watch comes with the pre-installed Calendar app (Apple-made app). If you want to use any other calendar app on your Apple Watch, like Google Calendar, you are out of luck.

You can sync your Google account on your iPhone and get Google Calendar alerts on Apple Watch.

With this, all your Google Calendar events will be synced to your iPhone and you get alerts on your Apple Watch. Let’s see how to do this in detailed steps. If you aren’t interested in syncing your Google Calendar app, we have also mentioned a few third-party Calendar apps that are natively available on the App Store for Apple Watches. With the help of those apps, you can manage schedules, appointments, events, and much more right from your wrist.
