    Are you using your phone at the time that the watch isn't getting the notifications?

    Make sure I gear manager you selected to have notofications from all your apps to be sent to your phone.

    There's also an option in Gear Manager that you can set to have notification to be sent to watch while you're on the phone.

    Thirdly make sure your Gear is not set on mute.

    Anyone else unable to get notifications to vibrate on the S? I have them coming to the S but if I put the S in vibrate mode it turns the notifications and system sounds both to mute, not vibrate (only ringtone goes to vibrate). I can turn the notification and system sounds on and they work, just won't vibrate.

    I thought I was having problems but it appears it's a setting. Cause I thought it would ring and vibrate but it only does that on text messages for me. If it's just notification it just rings no vibrate.

    Not mine. I randomly get a vibration every once In a while but won't consistently vibrate for anything other than the phone.

    I agree. For instance Tapatalk vibrates but not Facebook messenger. Kinda defeats the purpose. I received these notifications back to back no setting change.

    When you say reset... what exactly do you mean? The reset features in the settings on the device?

    How difficult was it to get it back running? Similar to a phone hard reset?

    I basically just restored it and it's pretty much the same. Had to retrain S voice that's all I remember doing different.

    Hi, are your notifications working fine now? I'm having the same problem. Did a cache wipe and it seems to be working, but not sure how long.

    Did you clear the cache on the phone or the Gear.

    Just got the watch today (have lurked on the forums for a while now!) and confirm I've got the same issue. Has someone found out a fix? Basically some alerts work just fine (e.g. WhatsApp, 365Sports, Ebay) but the one I really want to work is the SMS messages on the phone.

    I have twitter sending me SMS messages to my phone number so they come up on my watch. I have found out that you can't receive text messages on the watch SIM whilst it's paired with the main phone so have gone back to the main phone receiving the twitter alerts and then showing up on the watch. HOWEVER, the watch does receive the messages and I can see them on the watch but there's no alert on the watch. I get vibrations from all other apps apart from text messages.

    Anyone?
