Apple's latest model of the Apple Watch has some pretty cool features that help to make it one of the best smartwatches on the market. It has a better battery life, new health tracking, and support for digital car keys. It's also got a built-in gyroscope and accelerometer that will detect when you have been in an accident, as well as a fall sensor and SOS button to contact emergency services.

However, some of the most useful features include the ability to block calls and messages on your Apple Watch, which can be helpful if you don't want distractions from people trying to contact you. But how exactly can you do that? Read on to learn how to block on apple watch.

The quickest way to disable phone call notifications on your Apple Watch is to enable Do Not Disturb mode. Swipe up from the bottom of your watch face to open Control Center, then find and tap the button with a crescent moon (Focus). This will silence your Apple Watch and prevent notifications from appearing on its screen until you turn it back on.

You can also block specific contacts or phone numbers in Messages, FaceTime, and Mail. In a Messages conversation, tap the name or number at the top of the screen, then tap Info. Tap Blocked this Caller. In Mail, tap the email address or contact, then tap Blocked.

You can block incoming notifications from specific apps on your Apple Watch by going to Settings General Notifications on your iPhone and choosing a setting for each app. This will ensure that the apps you choose don't show notifications on your Apple Watch.
