I want to clarify here, cause I was wrong in my previous post.

Antinephalist response was correct. You can long press on a notification and you'll be able to block it, even if it's from an app that doesn't appear in the list of the companion app.

Where I got it wrong... The long press needs to happen right when the notification pops up. If you go into you're notification list and long press on one, you won't get the right interface to block it. So you have to long press on the notification as it just pops up. Then you'll have the proper interface to block it permanently, even if it's not available in the companion app list.

It's really useful, just a bit tricky to pull off without knowing the details.

Thanks to Antinephalist for the cue.

Cheers

Is there then also a way to unblock such a notification?

To stop getting notifications when I update apps, I clicked Google Play Services in the Block Notification Settings.

I'm using Android Marsmallow and inside the Ticwear Global app --> Notification --> Block App notifications, I can select "Google Play services" and "Google App". These two will block Google Playstore and Google Now notifications coming to your watch.

Block Google Play Services in the Companion App, that will stop the app update/installed notifications.
