I have Wear on my Moto360 2nd Gen and 7.1.1 on my Pixel XL. I do not have the option to mute phone while connected to watch enabled in the Wear app. However, over the past week or so, I will sometimes look at my phone and see the Do Not Disturb icon by the clock. When I check, it say Alarms Only - Android Wear and has option to "End Now". I look at my watch, and it's not set to Do Not Disturb, I double-check to make sure the option to mute phone hasn't re-enabled itself in the Wear app... can't figure out why this is happening, but it's already caused me to miss a couple important texts/calls.

Has anyone else been experiencing this? Do you know if there is a fix?

I have as well. So far I've been chalking it up to settings I'd set add forgot in either AW or in Feel the Wear. Other times figure from pulling down menu and when I swipe to next item, it goes back to the watch face. Only later do I realize it took my swipe as selecting "do not disturb".

There's been a couple where I didn't figure out why.
