    I noticed that if I turn on Do not Disturb on the watch it turns on, on my phone and vice versa. The same thing happens with Airplane mode. However I noticed a thread on Macrumors saying that turning the phones hardware mute switch to silent should also turn on mute on the watch. But this doesn't happen with mine. Even with my phone on hardware mute, the watches sound is independently set, and doesn't turn on mute on the watch. Is it the same for you guys?

    I am seeing the same as you.
    Mute appears to be independent of the phone.

    Right so your iPhone can be on silent and your Apple watch still sound notifications?

    But do not disturb is working both ways fine, that should be enough or is mute required

    Mute is not mirrored. Sometimes when I get bored I flip the switch back and forth just for fun, my watch would go nuts if it's mirrored.

    If you mirror airplane mode, be sure to turn it off on the watch after turning it off on your phone. I actually forgot this afternoon and was wondering why I have no notifications coming in.
