apple watch strange issue or bug

watchOS and Apple Watch Apps

Here's the deal, I have my apple watch series 3 on mute. It is running the latest Watch OS, if that matters. I have it on mute. Notification sounds are muted as expected, but phone calls still ring through. Anyone know why this is happening? I think voicemail sounds come through too. And for the record, these are not people on my emergency bipass list.

It was the problem for me too. I have Apple Watch 5. The only way you can stop it is turning off the ringtone sound from your watch phone settings.

Not good, because that means your ringer is off for silent and not. They're about to find out it's a bug when I get my watch replacement and it does the same thing. Hope they fix it in the next OS.

I have an apple watch which is really good. I have been using this one for more than a year. Still in good condition.

Yes. I even turn theatre mode on and muted watch and phone and watch rang. Using 13.4.1 and 11 pro max. I do not trust mute setting on series 5.
