    I was trying to find a setting that can prevent phone from ringing when wearing apple watch and saw a RINGTONG settings (see it in the pic below) under the phone settings in apple watch app. I set it different ways but it has no effect when receiving calls. Does anyone know what this setting is for?

    I am on iOS 8.4.1 and watchOS 1.01.

    Plus, to me a big purpose for buying the watch is to have only the watch vibrate when receiving all kinds of notification. But it seems, unlike other notifications, you can't stop the phone ringing when wearing the watch. Is there a solution for this?

    It's to toggle whether or not your watch has an audible ringtone or just taptic feedback when receiving a phone call. It's an independent setting from "silent mode".

    You are right and I've just found out myself lately today. Thanks!
