And when you enable this option, you can turn on silent mode in any time directly by covering the clock face.
Wake up the clock inside the last app you used

How to use sleep mode on Apple Watch
The Apple Watch can track a lot of information on the way in you sleep, thus helping you sleep better and more comfortably.
But not all users may want to track their sleep via the watch, and you can turn the watch on in a small alarm that shows the time and suggested wake-up time.
You can do this by placing the watch on its side instead of resting it on the top of the screen or the back of the screen.
You can also use the new focus modes in the watch to link this mode with the iPhone in so that the phone also enters in silent mode.
