Then, tap on the Bell icon to enable Silent mode. The bell icon will turn red indicating that the watch has been muted. Similarly, know the meaning of other Apple Watch icons and symbols.

Note: If your Apple Watch is on Silent mode and you put it on charging, Silent mode will not silence alarms and timers.
