Do Not Disturb is a useful feature when you don’t want to receive any notifications and calls from anyone (you can make exceptions for your favourite contacts). With rising popularity of Apple Watch, users have also begun to use Do Not Disturb on Apple Watch.
If you want to enable Do Not Disturb on Apple Watch, there are two methods: you can do this from the Watch app on the paired iPhone and you can also use this feature from the Apple Watch itself. Both the methods are easy to perform on respective devices.
Note that your Apple Watch will collect all notifications but it will not notify you as long as this feature is enabled on your smartwatch. This Do Not Disturb can be a great help when you are in the middle of a meeting, having sound sleep, watching movies or at hospital, where you don’t want to grab attention of hospital staff by notification sounds.
As the name suggests, Do Not Disturb will simply not disturb you; it will keep disturbing your smartwatch anyway.
