    Just got my apple watch and am loving it. Had a quick question though. Currently if I receive a text message my phone will not make any noise or show signs of notification. Instead my watch will beep and haptic.

    When I receive a call both my phone and my watch ring. Is it possible to have just my watch notify me when I have a call and not have my phone ring? Is it possible to have my watch just haptic and not make noise when I receive a call?

    I don't think it's possible to disable this on the watch. Maybe if you turn off Handoff from the Apple Watch app? But that would also disable the other handoff features (opening an app on the watch and continuing an action on the phone).

    I wanted the same thing, so I engaged the silent slider on the side of my phone (although I've set the phone to vibrate on silent). Now only my watch rings when I receive a call. Regarding your interest in only allowing the haptic alert on the watch, I'd think muting the watch in Settings on the AW itself or through the AW app on your phone would allow you to silence the ring but keep the haptic feedback.

    exactly this. I have my phone on silent with no vibrate and the watch on silent. It only vibrates for all of my notifications.

    I wanted to be able to do this so I created a silent ringtone in GarageBand.

    That way I can have a silent ring without having to turn all audible feedback off. I like having the keyboard clicks, for example.

    This is good advice. I also like having my Apple Pay ding.

    Flick the switch to silent mode, and disable vibrate.
