    Hi all. Switched to Samsung from Apple. This is amazing!

    I got the phone yesterday (T-Mobile) and also a Gear Fit 2. I've trying everything but notification on the tracker from the phone don't seem to work. Everything is on under settings but still is not working.

    Anyone has the same issue?

    Big thanks!

    Welcome to Android. I think you'll love it.


    Have you installed the Samsung Gear app on your phone, then used that to set the watch up?


    CNET details the process here if you need more. Good luck.

    OK, so under the "Manage Notifications" section, they are all selected I assume, right?

    Not sure what it might be then honestly. Hopefully others might chime in with solutions.


    If it were me, first I'd unpair/repair with the phone. If no luck, then factory reset the Gear Fit2. If still no luck I would look to exchange it.

    Are you getting notifications on the phone? It only sends the notifications to the Gear if the phone is getting them? Just another idea. I don't have the Gear Fit 2, so I don't know specifically.

    There is a setting to only show gear fit2 notifications when your phone is not in use. Check that out?

    I have been bothered by this for the most part of today as well. I was about to give up i had actually taken the watch off and then i noticed there is a white sticker on the bottom of the watch. I peeled it off then tested again and it works perfect. Wow i feel like an *****. I guess that sticker blocked the sensor and was detecting that it was on my wrist. Not sure if this is whats wrong with you but its what was with me.

    Out of curiosity, is the gear fit 2 watches coming in black or the grey showing in the promo pics? Didn't get an option to choose a color

    Black and it is a lighter black. almost charcoal grey. There is also blue and pink - at best buy anyways.

    I already had the Gear Fit 2 so it's not one I got with the promotion (I'm waiting on a backordered SD card!) and it was working fine with my Note 3 but for some reason I am not getting any notifications on my Note 7. It worked like a champ until I switched phones and hard reset to it my Note 7. It's not a sticker issue-I pulled that off in the first place when I originally got it a couple months ago. I wonder if I need to reset and start from scratch but I have all the settings telling to accept notifications and I am not getting alerts to my watch when my phone rings nor text messages or anything. Before I factory reset, does anyone have any suggestions?

    I turned "Limit notifications" to off in the Gear app on my Note 7. Since upgrading from my Note 4 my regular email notifications stopped appearing on my Gear S2. Now that I've changed that it seems to have fixed that issue.

    Now if they'd just push out a fix to keep my watch from ringing when I get a call even though it's set to vibrate only. ><

    Yeah, I do have that turned off too. Thanks anyway. though. I wish I knew why it's not working. I just got a phone call and no notification. Looks like I will be factory resetting and trying again soon.

    I decided to reset my phone and that did the trick. All is well and I'm getting my notifications just fine now.
