    I just go my Moto 360 and the Moto 360 Will Not notifiy & vibrate on watch when when I get a txt or mms when Note 3 Is In Vibrate Mode. The watch will Vibrate & Notify when I'm got my phone set to silent or sound. I prefer to keep my phone on vibrate so I miss my notifications for text and mms... Anyone else have this problem or a work around..

    That's odd. Mine isn't doing that. I did switch to Hangouts though to be able to reply directly from the watch, but I just tried it switching back to the stock messaging app and it works. My phone is always on vibrate while at work.

    You have a Note 3? I can't figure this out. Watch will only vibrate for txt & mms on silent and sound. It only appears to only affect txt & mms because email will come through... Arggg

    So weird... Are you using the stock messaging app or Hangouts? Does your phone vibrate when you get a message? Do any cards show up on your watch, even if it doesn't vibrate? This happens to me BUT with Facebook Messenger notifications. They will show up, but not vibrate no matter which setting my phone is in.

    Mine doesn't act that way either on the Nexus5

    8sms also supports replying from the watch.

    I suspect it's the phone. My phone is an asurion insurance refurb replacement. I tried 3rd party msg apps (handcent, go sms pro) and they both work on vibrate. I decided to use go sms pro at this point...

    I don't think it is the phone, I think it is Android Wear.

    I have the LG G Watch and I tested it with both a Note 3 and a Galaxy S3. I tried both the default Samsung Message app and Verizon's Message+ app. Neither will vibrate on the watch unless the phone is set to silent.

    When I use SMS in hangouts it vibrates on the phone and the watch. But I hate using Hangouts as my text message client.

    So maybe it's the watch? I have the Moto360 with a Note 3 before, now a Note 4, and like I said, other than Facebook Messenger, everything else does what it's supposed to do and vibrates when it needs to.

    For some reason, though, the stock messaging app from the Note 4 does allow replying from the phone. You just can't read the threaded conversation and if you have more than two messages waiting you can only see the preview (sort of like how the stock e-mail app works). So, still using Hangouts for SMS. Sadly, using Hangouts breaks compatibility with my car and it can't read the messages. Bummer.

    I have used GoSMS Pro for years and it seamed to work fine on the watch. Someone had suggested Textra in this forums so installed Textra just to play with it and see what I thought.
    Here's what is Interesting. With Go SMS I got the options to reply via sms or Open on phone but with Textra I get Reply, mark as read or call.
    I like those three options much better.

    Yeah, those are the options I'm seeing with the Note 4's stock messaging app, but like I said, not much use if you have more than one message waiting...

    Thanks, I tried 8sms and really like it. I liked it so much I even donated to developer. It has a minimal look and works great. It also works with Light Flow.

    I tried several SMS programs before settling on 8sms. I personally think it is the best and works the best with repeat reminder systems, the watch, and other things. I was totally bummed when he put ads on it recently. I have no problem "donating" but I would have been more willing had he just asked instead of putting on ads.

    In any case, the developer worked with me to get fixes when I pointed out some bugs, too.

    Funny, I had no idea ads had been added to 8sms. I don't let any of my apps auto-update so I will not be updating from the pre-ads version I have, I guess...

    I'm using Textra and I get my text messages on my Moto 360. I can reply by voice to them also.

    They are extremely wrong. Several (or more) sms programs work just fine with the Moto 360. I wish they wouldn't tell people things like that. It makes it sound like Hangouts is mandatory.... blech.

    @stu5797..........Did you Resync apps in Android Wear? Hangouts updated last week and I would not get notifications, Resync fixed it.

    I think if you update an app on your phone the app *may* not sync with the watch anymore, at least in my situation.

    You need to switch to something like 8SMS, GOsms, Textra, or Hangouts
