    It's definitely communicating with the watch. BT is connected. If I take a picture with the watch it transfers it over to the device no problem. I am just not receiving notifications (text, email, etc...). Anyone else experiencing this? Any ideas on what to try? Reset the Gear and re-connect?

    Did you go into the Samsung gear manager and verify all the desired push notifications are on? May have switched off in the update ?

    I am getting notifications now. I think it took a few reboots and turning BT on and off a a few times. Doesn't really make sense but it's working now.

    the problem is that the Gear app (on the phone) doesn't have the permisisons to access the notifications. I found a workaround:

    Go to Settings -> My Device -> Sounds and Notifications

    and then under Notification there is a "Notification access" menu. Now you have to check the Samsung Gear checkbox to allow the app to read the notifications from your phone Note: this checkbox is automatically cleared off once you reboot your phone (I think this is a software bug that needs to be resolved by Samsung).

    I hope this works on your side.

    Glad to hear you got it going...

    It's not much help, but as a point of interest, I have a Gear 2 and my Kit Kat to Lollipop upgrade went flawlessly. The phone to watch communication carried on without skipping a beat.
