How To Manage Notifications - LG G Watch

Learn how to manage Notifications on your LG G Watch. Most notifications you see on your phone will also show up on your watch. These include notifications for missed calls, texts, event reminders, and more. When you get a notification, your watch will only vibrate; it won’t make a sound.

How notifications work

Your watch uses the notification settings you have for each app on your phone.

  • If your app vibrates or makes a sound for notifications on your phone, your watch will vibrate.
  • If your app doesnt vibrate or make a sound for notifications, your watch wont vibrate, but youll still see a card on your watch.
  • If your entire phone is in silent mode, your watch will still vibrate since the watch uses each individual apps settings.

For example, if you have sound and vibrate notifications turned on for Gmail on your phone, your watch will vibrate when you get a new email. If you turn off these notifications for Gmail on your phone, your watch wont vibrate, but youll still see Gmail cards on your watch. When you dismiss a notification on your watch, it’s also dismissed on your phone (and the other way around).

Mute notifications on your watch

If you dont want to see notifications on your watch, you can mute your watch. When your watch is muted, it wont vibrate for new notifications.

  • To mute or unmute: Swipe all the way down from the top of the screen until your watch vibrates. Youll see the word “Mute or Unmute.
  • When your watch is muted, youll see a Mute icon on your screen.

Turn off watch notifications for specific apps

If you get notifications on your phone that you dont want to see Silence icon on your watch, you can stop specific apps from showing up on your watch.

  • On your phone, open the Android Wear app icon.
  • Touch the Settings icon.
  • Touch Mute app notifications.
  • Touch the Plus icon.
  • Touch the app you want to block.

Turning off Google Now cards

  • If you dont want to see any Google Now cards, you have to turn off Google Now on your phone. When you listen to music on your phone, youll always see the music card with options to pause and play. You cant turn this card off.
