Whenever I cook spaghetti, I use a timer to let me know when its al-dente (usually 10 min). Before it was the old timer that you have to turn, later I used my iPhone or sometimes iPad to set the timer. Nowadays, I set timer on Apple Watch, it is much more convenient. Because I usually don’t tend to carry iPhone or iPad around with me all the time. Luckily, for the Apple Watch, it is most of the time resting on my wrist. So, as a result, the chance of missing an alert is usually reduced.
