Using Google calendar on Apple watch is an amazing experience; you can immediately see scheduled meetings, events, and reminders. But it is a little challenging to use Google apps on Apple Watch.

Step 6: Then tap on save. 

Note:
Syncing will take some time; in my case, it takes around 20 minutes for proper syncing. And then, you will be able to view Google calendar reminders, events, and other schedules. If events are successfully synced with your iPhone, they will automatically be synced with your Apple Watch.

Suppose you want to double-check whether that Google calendar is synced with your iOS calendar or not. Open the Calendar app on your iPhone, and tap on the calendar at the button. Here make sure that your recently added Gmail account is checked. 

Google Calendar On Apple Watch Not Working?

Sometimes Google calendar doesn’t show on your Apple watch, and this is because of unsuccessful syncing. So, in that case, you use your safari web browser for successful syncing. 

Here are the steps to follow. 

  • Open Safari browser on iPhone or any other iOS device.
  • Go to Google Sync Settings website.
  • Sign in with the Gmail that you want to sync calendars with. 
  • After successful sign-in, your Gmail id will appear under Shared calendars. Click the checkbox next to the calendar. 
  • The last click on save, and all your events and reminder will sync with the iOS calendar. And after a few, you can see Google Calendar on Apple Watch. 

Is Google Calendar Better Than Apple Calendar?

Google calendar and Apple calendar both offer complex services to users. Both have some pros and cons. But Google calendar works perfectly. We’ll caress all iOS, Android and other devices, whereas Apple calendar only supports the Apple platform. 

Similarly, you can integrate third-party apps with Google calendar, while Apple Calendar only allows native apps for integration. 

Most of the features are the same on both calendars, but the Google calendar app got some extra features. Firstly, it’s easy to use, and you can integrate Google Calendar with Zapier and then connect it with thousands of other apps. 

Similarly, creating events and tasks on the Google calendar app is a bit easier than using Apple calendar. At the same time, the Apple calendar gives a much more organized interface that might be challenging for beginners.
