You can also turn on the iPhone’s Do Not Disturb setting. In this case, when you turn on Do Not Disturb on your device, the other device will pick up the setting automatically as long as the second device is in range.

A Few More Words About Notifications
If you don’t see your notifications on your Apple Watch, make sure that your Apple Watch and iPhone are connected. In fact, if your devices disconnect, your notifications will go to your iPhone instead of your Apple Watch.
You should also check the settings on your Apple Watch. When your Apple Watch locks or you turn on Do Not Disturb, your notifications go to your iPhone.
When your Apple Watch is locked, Lock appears on the watch face. If your Apple Watch has a passcode, it locks automatically when you aren’t wearing the device, when it loses contact with your skin, or while it’s charging.
When Do Not Disturb is on, a Moon icon appears on the watch face. To turn this feature on or off, swipe up on the watch face, then tap Do Not Disturb.
How to Customize or Mirror Notification Settings
By default, the Apple Watch notifications are set up to mirror your iPhone settings. For example, if you have set your iPhone Mail app to notify you only of VIP emails, and the notifications on the watch mirror the paired iPhone, you will only see VIP email notifications on your Apple Watch.
For built-in apps, it is possible to customize the notifications on the Apple Watch:
- Open the Apple Watch app on the iPhone.
- Next, tap the My Watch tab.
- Tap Notifications.
- Now, tap an app.
If the user wants the app’s notification settings to mirror their settings on the iPhone, tap Mirror my iPhone. If instead the user wants to use different notification settings just for the Apple Watch, the user should tap Custom.
For third-party apps, users can turn off notifications. To do so, scroll down to the Mirror iPhone Alerts From section and turn off the setting next to the app.
If the user prefers to hide the notification icon: A red dot icon appears on your watch face when the user gets a notification. It is easy to hide the red dot, so it doesn’t appear when you have unread notifications. To do this:
- Open the Apple Watch app on the paired iPhone.
- Tap the My Watch tab.
- Next, tap Notifications.
- Turn off Notifications Indicator.
Note that some people are sensitive to certain materials. This can be due to allergies, environmental factors, extended exposure to irritants like soap or sweat, and other causes. In addition to ensuring that all materials adhere to existing regulations, Apple developed its own specifications for the Apple Watch that go beyond those requirements. In fact, every material that touches the user’s skin has gone through extensive evaluation in accordance with these specifications. According to Apple, this includes:
- Thousands of material composition tests.
- More than a thousand prototypes worn for trial studies.
- Hundreds of toxicological assessments.
- Consultations with board-certified dermatologists.
If you know you have allergies or other sensitivities, be aware that the Apple Watch and some of its bands contain the following materials: nickel, stainless steel, space gray aluminum, or rose gold aluminum case, and methacrylate (but the Apple Watch and its bands are designed so that parts containing methacrylate are not in direct contact with the skin).
