If you think that red dot won’t go away, you need to check the steps mentioned below. You can actually turn off the red dot by following two simple methods.

Note that red dot basically shows that you have received notifications on your Apple Watch. Since your smart watch mirrors contents of your iPhone, you receive all those alerts and notifications on your watch for a quick glance. Though you can always turn off notifications on Apple Watch, it is a good idea to keep them enabled for a quick look. But if you want to get rid of that small red mark or dot, you can simply clear all notifications on Apple Watch at once. Since all your Apple Watch notifications are deleted, you won’t see that red dot again or at least until you receive another notification on watch.

Once you clear all your notifications, you won’t be able to see them again; this is the drawback of the action. However, if you have made up your mind to remove that red dot from Apple Watch, you can turn off Notification Indicator.
