    I have noticed that with Text message that gear is behind phone in getting messages. Not sure if an issue with gear picking up that phone is near so it doesnt bother or what. Some times noticing about 1 min lag behind. Not significant, but noticeable when hearing phone go off in your pocket and then nothing on your wrist. Any others notice this. Email seems to be instant??

    It's probably a software issue, wait for the next update

    It's very frustrating...I get some and don't get others at all. Wondering if the phone is defective or the watch at this point

    I have tried resetting both with no luck thought about exchanging both at this point to see if others are doing the same

    Like I said, wait for a software update. It is an issue that's software related and should be sorted out soon by Samsung

    I would think the Gear would be slightly behind on all notifications since the cell signal is not tied to the Gear, but rather the phone?

    Text and other notifications are being relayed to the Gear from the phone.

    The delay is miniscule unless of course you're obsessing about it. I think your device is working fine?

    An updated...i read several reviews tonight how stated the galaxy gear should get notifications instant as phone gets text. I decided to reboot device and galaxy gear. This corrected the issue and now getting notifications instant on galaxy gear. I did download go sms at one point and then removed when finding out galaxy gear working only with default sms from samsung. Wondering if that caused issues.

    The challenge is always making sure the apps are in sync (so to speak) or compatible with the device. Glad to hear its working out for you now.

    So, to clarify you're issue here, was the delay was happening when you were using a go sms or the native app?

    This delay was coming from go sms when using original texting app with phone no issues and getting messages instantly

    I got my galaxy gear over the weekend and have been relatively happy with what it can do. The biggest problem I have is inconsistent notifications. At first I wasn't getting any notifications at all and now it seems like I am getting many of the email notifications. I am not getting any Text message notifications except for one yesterday. Since I received one, I am pretty sure that I have everything st up correctly, I just can't figure out why it is picking and choosing which notifications to send me. The main reason I got the gear is so that I could "screen" the notifications and decide when I have to go the smartphone, and when it is okay to wait. Can anyone help me with this?? By the way, I am running the native email app and test messages app on my Note 3 -- I have not downloaded any 3rd party apps for those functions.

    Would it be safe to say that you do have the messaging function checked in the settings under notifications?

    I don't care how many times I have uninstalled the Gear app & reset my watch, installed everything again, reset the gear only, reinstalled the gear app only etc etc etc. I can not get this thing to send notifications to save my life. Bought the gear yesterday, could not get it to work. Took it back to BB and got another one, the tech set it up and it worked fine; even though he didn't do anything different then I did. So I figured it was the watch. it stopped sending notifications today (SMS, Emails), I have installed every scenario I can think of, so I know its not the watch or my phone since they both worked fine yesterday. I'm at my wits end…..any other special secrets I do not know about?

    If I have your phone's screen on a long time out that will stop notifications from being sent-if the screen is on the notification will not be sent-hope this helps

    The Gear works like the notification light on your phone. It only receives notifications when the screen is turned off.

    I have the opposite problem. SMS messages seem to show up on my wrist instantly, but emails are either a few minutes behind the buzz in my pocket or don't show up at all.

    I'm testing with the screen on my phone locked, I'm using the stock Email app and yes, email notifications are selected in the Gear Manager.

    Im having the same issue as you and the the other person a few post above. Tried resetting reinstalling reconfigurig the gear app and gear watch and I get very inconstant results. Very few times do notifications arrive on both as expected. Often times I will get a flood of email text and other app notifications all at once. None of it makes sense. And then you have thungs like calendar notificatiins that show consistently on both devices at the same time as expected

    I did manually flash the watch with the UK mk7 rom. Ive been trying to find the stock USA rom thay shipped on my watch so I could downgrade and officaly update via the gear app. Anyone onow where I can downlod the pre mk7 rom for USA users? This is the only thing I have not tried. Both my partner and I have galaxy note 3 with galaxy gear. I upgraded his to mk7 as well with the same UK rom and he has not had any issues that Im experience.

    I also uninstalled any app from my phone I dont need and turned of all factory baked in apps I do not use.

    We are on verizon if that makes any difference

    I found the solution to the text delay notification, at least for me. I use Pop Up Notifier for only SMS messages. It's set to wake up the screen and not time it out for 20 seconds -- which explains why my text notifications on the Gear are delayed for 20 seconds. I deactivated it and I get text notifications as promptly as other notifications.

    Am I correct to say that when you are receiving notifications your phone is not on? meaning you are not actually looking up something, checking emails, playing candy crush etc. Because if so I noticed that when I am doing something with the phone and I receive a text, email or gmail it will not show on the GG until you close the phone then the notification will pop up! It kind of makes sense because why would you need the notification on the watch if you're already looking at the phone?.... just saying

    For me that is the case as well.

    Where i'm also having an issue is if i'm not using my phone at all. It would be in another room very near by on the charger, i get a text, email, etc it takes 20-30 minutes for it to make it to my watch. That is if it ever makes it to it. But then very few times, it works just fine under the same conditions. So it has me stumped. That is why I wanted to now if anybody could point me to a download of the original firmware for the watch thinking upgrading on my own may have caused some issue.
