I cannot get my Watch 4 to vibrate / sound for SMS notifications. The orange light comes on, but no "physical" notification. Vibrate / Sound works for all other notifications, just not SMS.

Have you checked that notifications in the Wearable app are active for Messages? You may also need to modify your 'Show phone notifications on watch' options to show alerts even when phone in use.

Also, if you're using Google Messages, are you logged into the web version on an active PC/browser? If so that may be 'intercepting' the notification (since it's acting like the currently-active device) and leaving all other sessions with just an unread, silent notification. Very common with Telegram, too.

I ended up downloading Google Message and it works with that, but not with the SMS app that came installed on my Samsung Galaxy phone. Don't really like the Google App, but i guess I'll get used to it. Thanks for the reply.
