If you’re getting a lot of unwanted calls, emails, or texts from someone you want to block, Apple allows you to do so easily. In this article, we’ll explore the different ways you can block a contact on apple watch.

The main method to block contacts on your watch involves using your paired iPhone. We’ll also cover other methods that allow you to effectively manage incoming calls and messages, ensuring a peaceful and controlled smartwatch experience.

To block a contact on your Apple Watch, open the Messages app and find the conversation you want to delete. Then, tap the blue info icon at the top of the conversation and select ‘Block Contact’. Once you’ve done this, the contact will be unable to call or message you and your phone will automatically forward any messages to voicemail.

One thing to keep in mind is that your blocked contact won’t receive any notification or indication they’ve been blocked, so they might still try to get in touch. However, if they’re a persistent nuisance or scammer, reporting them to your carrier may help stop them from calling/texting again.

While the main method of blocking contacts on your watch is through the Messages app, you can also block calls and Facetime from the Phone app or Silence Unknown Callers feature on your iPhone. Keep in mind that any changes made on your iPhone will sync with your Apple Watch, ensuring consistency across devices.
