Resume Previous Activity
By default, the Apple Watch will display your watch face when you use Raise to Wake. For most people, that’s a decent option. But it can be annoying if you’d rather have the wearable show your most recently performed activity like Music playback.
There’s a setting for that. Just go to the Settings app on your Watch, tap General and Wake Screen. Then, select Previous Activity. Now, when you wake up your Apple Watch’s display, it’ll show you whatever you were doing on the Apple Watch before the screen turned off.
