    I am just not a fan of the bell ding. Other than that, the watch is everything I dreamed it to be.

    Is there anyway to change it? Surely apple did not lock us in to this one sound?

    So far, no options for sound/tone changes that I am aware of.

    Just take it off completely. The little taps should be enough.

    That's what I did. I also turned of sound notifications on my phone too now. Except for phone calls.

    Go to the app on your phone and change from "Mirror to iPhone" to "Custom" from there you can change the settings .

    I just found this out , it was driving me crazy . Though I did leave the sound for important notifications for the moment . I have to get used to the haptics which are not very strong .

    To answer the OP , I don't think you can change the sound , just make it higher or lower .

    You can leave those on. The phone won't make notification sounds unless your actively using it while your wearing the watch.

    I believe Apple's reasoning for this is that they want different notifications to have a distinct sound and "feel" to them. The taps are subtly different, and the sounds were designed to correspond to the taps so that the wearer could, over time, pick up on these cues to know what type of notification they were receiving before they even looked at the display.
