How to turn off notification sound on Apple Watch

At Apple Watch, it's easy to close unnecessary notifications immediately after they appear on your wrist. Starting with watchOS 5, you can mute notifications from some apps. Then notifications will appear without sound immediately in the Notification Center Apple Watch and linked iPhone. This is a great way to save yourself the frequent annoying notifications without changing the settings in the app to iPhone.

If you will not use the application for a long time, Siri will offer to disable notifications from it, which is very convenient. You can change your notification settings in different ways, and we'll explain how below.

Method # 1: quick setup

1) First, swipe left on a notification or a group of notifications when they appear on your watch, then tap the three dots icon.

2) Now choose one of the options:

  • Deliver quietly: Notifications will be sent directly to Action Center, not the lock screen, and will arrive without sound.
  • Disable at Apple Watch: Notifications from the app will be disabled.

If you select Deliver Quietly, you won't get notifications from specific apps, but you can still view them when you have time.

This is how the function Apple describes:

If you want notifications related to a particular program to come without sound or be accompanied by tactile signals, click 'Deliver quietly'. Such notifications will go directly to the Notification Center on both Apple Watch and iPhone, without a sound or tactile signal.

The function will be applied both on the watch and on the smartphone, if this is not a standard application, notifications can be configured separately in them.

Method # 2: Action Center

1) Open the Action Center by swiping down from the very top of the watch face.

2) Swipe left on a notification or a group of notifications, and then tap the three dots icon.
