Probably a dumb question but need help please.

Is there a way to mirror iPhone silence/mute (when physical button on iPhone is switched to mute) and Watch?
Seems like when i silence/mute iPhone i don't see the Watch silenced as well (when check glances on watch).

Definitely a leaning curve with the watch. All good, i enjoy learning, i think....

Thanks

Why mirror it from the iPhone? You can mute the sounds on the watch separately. Which is good.

EDIT: Since I got the Apple Watch I always have both the phone and watch muted, only to be notified by taps. Which is good as well.

When i head to work i need all the audio notifications to stop.
This way i would just since the iPhone and it would mirror to the watch as well?

Are you still getting any haptic notifications on the Watch?
Probably lack of sleep is definitely affecting me or i need to reboot the watch, because right not I'm not getting any haptic notifications and my watch is on silence.

Well, one of the first things I did on the watch is turn sound notifications off as I already mentioned.

That is one of the main points for me with the watch, to be notified silently by it, have a quick glance and decide if I need to reply to one or not.

If you tried this it still would only be the phone you'd mute when you go to work.

EDIT: You edited as well and my answer is: yes, I do.

EDIT: When choosing the apps from which I want to be notified I changed most of the settings per app to : "my own", not "mirror iPhone" and "taptic" to on.

Another thing came to my mind:

Make sure you have the notifications for the specific apps you want to be notified by activated on the iPhone as well. You won't be notified on the watch if you have turned the notifications for that specific app off on the iPhone and choose "mirror iPhone".

Thanks for your quick response and help.
Thats probably my issue, I've set most to mirror my iPhone, and when i silence my iPhone, i don't get a vibrate from text notifications, thats probably why I'm not getting any haptics on the watch.

Seems like vibrate on the iPhone and haptic on the Watch mirror each other.
If vibrate is off for a particular notification on the iPhone and you are mirroring that notification on the watch, you will not receive a haptic notification on the watch.

But if you are mirroring, you will only get a haptic on the watch and not a vibrate on the iPhone, which is pretty nice.

I am not a fan of anything vibrating in my pocket, unless its my wife's doing...

You're welcome. I haven't tried your settings yet but that sounds reasonable.
