    Default Apple Watch in Professional Environments

    As a psychotherapist who loves technology (sound familiar?) I'm looking to get an apple watch. However, I have concerns that notifications or sounds may interfere or become very distracting during my sessions. Is there a setting on the watch that would silence the speaker completely? Is there a setting that will allow you to keep the screen off?

    From what I saw on the Apple Event telecast - you can have it notify with just a little vibrate...

    My understanding is that notifications can be set to just tap you on the wrist with no sound. And it won't show in the screen until you lift your wrist up.

    If you forget to silence notifications, you can just cup your palm over the top of the watch to silence it.

    Just set it to vibrate or more like a pulse feeling is how people have described it.

    My question is when you have the watch on notifications will obviously come through on watch but will the notification also come through on your phone? I don't think this was explained. I'm sure they'll be a setting for this but Apple didn't explain how the phone and watch will work together.

    I believe the Apple Watch app on the iPhone will permit you to manage which/how notifications are forwarded to your  Watch.
