Smart no­ti­fi­ca­tions

When you cre­ate an event with a lo­ca­tion in Cal­en­dar on your iPhone, you can choose when it should alert you. “Time to Leave” as­sesses the traf­fic, and no­ti­fies you (in­clud­ing on your Watch) when it’s time to go.

Travel time in Maps

In the Maps app on your Watch, you can look up lo­ca­tions (en­ter­ing text by scrib­bling or dic­ta­tion), and then get walk­ing, driving, or pub­lic trans­port di­rec­tions. These will show an es­ti­mated time for each op­tion.

Siri will help

The Siri watch face is de­signed to be proac­tive, and one thing it’s able to do is look at your work ad­dress in your con­tact info, work out what time you nor­mally ar­rive, and start warn­ing you if traf­fic con­di­tions will af­fect that.
