Silent Modes on Your Watch
To make sure you're always on track, you use your Galaxy Watch for setting all kinds of reminders. But sometimes they can be more distracting than helpful. If you are somewhere where alerts (excluding Alarms) need to be silenced, like the library or a movie theater, you can temporarily disable them. You can also turn them off when it's time to go to sleep.
Available screens and settings may vary by provider, phone, or watch.
Do Not Disturb
If you have a lot of work to do, you can turn on Do not disturb on your Galaxy Watch. It will silence all alerts (except Alarms) to help minimize distractions. You can also set a time for Do not disturb to turn on automatically.
From the watch's Home screen, navigate to Settings. Swipe to and touch Advanced, and then swipe to and touch Do not disturb. Touch the slider to turn it on. Choose when you want to turn it on, and then touch Done.
To schedule when to turn Do not disturb on and off, touch the slider next to Turn on as scheduled, and then touch Set schedule. Select the Start time, End time, and Days. Then, touch DONE.
Everyone silences their phones in a movie theater, and if you get alerts on your Galaxy Watch, you should silence it too. That way, alerts won't interrupt the movie.
From the watch's Home screen, navigate to Settings. Swipe to and touch Advanced, and then swipe to and touch Theater mode. Touch the slider to turn it on, and then touch Done. When you are done watching the movie, make sure you turn the mode off.
Nothing is more annoying than being woken up by a notification in the middle of the night, especially if the notification isn't important. With Goodnight Mode, all alert sounds (except Alarms) will be silenced so you can get some sleep.
From the watch's Home screen, navigate to Settings. Swipe to and touch Advanced, and then swipe to and touch Goodnight mode. Touch the slider to turn it on, and then touch Done. Make sure to turn the mode off in the morning.
