by james thomsan blogger

When you are watching the movie in the theater or attending an office meeting, and you don’t want to receive any notification sound from the Apple Watch. Sometimes you consider muting the sound or vibration that you receive from the Apple Watch so that you don’t get disturbed when doing any essential work.

Instead of disabling the notification sound, you can stop that sound by placing your finger on the Apple Watch screen as this is the easiest way not to get disturbed when you are in some important place.

In case you wish to do the above thing, then place the finger into the “Mute” button located in the “Sound and Haptics” column of the “Apple Watch Application” on the iOS device. This is only a quick option to mute the sound from the Apple Watch, and it is just a temporary way.

Steps for enabling “Do Not Disturb” on the Apple Watch

In case you wish to enable this “Do not disturb” feature on the Apple Watch, then slide up from the end to hit the “Control Center” page to open it on the screen, and right-hand column to the “Bell” symbol which you will use to place mute mode on the Apple Watch, a symbol of “Half-moon” will appear on the Apple watch screen which you wish to click.

Before placing the Apple Watch into a mute mode, a time period option of placing this feature will come which contain a button such as for few minutes or two hours, and this feature will not automatically get disable in case you had not selected any options from the given list. Make sure that you do not forget to disable “Do Not Disturb” option by following the steps mentioned above, and the “Half-moon” symbol should also change into the disable button.

Once you enable the “Do Not Disturb” option, you will not receive any notification sound from the Apple Watch until disabling this “Do Not Disturb” option again. You will still receive notification sounds from the “Timers and alarms” features of Apple Watch after enabling the “Do Not Disturb” option. Even you do not get vibration sound on the Apple Watch.

When you use the iOS application, ensure that you should place “Do Not Disturb” option in both Apple Watch and iOS device together. In case you wish to enable “Do Not Disturb” in both the device and then below the “General Settings” button click “Do Not Disturb” option after that, select “Mirror iOS” button.

In case you place the iOS device into “Do Not Disturb” option then the Apple Watch also enables this feature.

Steps for enabling “Theater Mode” on the Apple Watch

The Theater Mode feature silent the notification sounds from the Apple Watch such as in “Do Not Disturb” option and it also disables the screen wake feature on the Apple Watch.

In case you want to enable this “Theater Mode” feature, then click the “Digital Crown” button till you do not return to the font display of the Apple Watch and move upward from the end to the “Control Center” page. Once you enable “Theater mode” option, there will be no disturbance coming from the notification sound of Apple Watch. In case you wish to disable this feature, then go through the steps mentioned above, and your Apple watch screen starts waking up.
