Android Wear is a useful tool to have—notifications on your wrist are a brilliant thing. But it can also be incredibly distracting, especially if the notification isn’t “important.” Maybe you want something on your phone, but it has no place on your wrist.

First things first, jump into the Android Wear app. On the main Wear screen, tap the cog icon in the upper right corner.

Under the “General” section, tap the “Block app notifications” entry.

Bam, done. That’s literally all there is to it. Notifications from those apps will no longer appear on your watch.
