Apple Watch: Block and Unblock Contacts

Apple Watch allows to block a particular contact so that person will not be able to get in touch with you. Use the Friends screen in the Apple screen on iPhone to perform the action. When you block a contact, you block all the telephone numbers and all email addresses in the contact record. But you can then unlock individual phone numbers or e-mail addresses, leaving the other numbers and addresses blocked.
