4 minutes ago | The Apple Watch will not be disabled if you or your friends cancel an Apple Watch session, Apple announced this week.
Instead, when your Apple watch goes into sleep mode, the device will automatically dismiss notifications, including those from the Apple Watch app, if you’re offline or the notifications from your Apple iPhone, iPad or Mac are not showing up in the Watch app.
This feature is useful if you don’t want to have to manually dismiss notifications from the Watch because your friends are not online, and you don�t want to take away the ability to see your Applewatch status information on a map, for example.
The feature is available for Apple Watch owners, who will be able to disable the feature at any time by turning off Apple Watch notifications and turning on Apple Watch wake, alarm, and vibration controls.
Apple has made this a requirement for many people with the Apple TV and Apple Watch, including users of third-party smartwatches.
