How to turn on Airplane Mode on Apple Watch

  2. Find the Airplane Mode button.
  3. Tap the Airplane Mode icon. It should turn orange, indicating that Airplane Mode has now been enabled.

When Airplane Mode is enabled, you’ll also see an orange plane icon on the top of your Watch face. Turning on Airplane Mode disables the cellular and Wi-Fi radios.
