Turn on Airplane Mode. Swipe up on the watch face, swipe to the Settings glance, then tap the Airplane Mode button Airplane Mode icon. When Airplane Mode is on, you’ll see Airplane Mode icon at the top of the screen.

The Settings glance where you can see the connection status of your watch and iPhone and set Airplane Mode, Do Not Disturb, and Mute. You can also ping your iPhone. Airplane Mode is selected and the status is Disconnected.
