    hello all,

    I am getting an odd error that I cannot seem to pinpoint. For whatever reason, whenever I get activity update messages from friends it comes through in Dutch.

    EVERY other notification is in English as I want. Cannot seem to link what is causing this anywhere systemwide.

    Any thoughts? I didn't wanna lose any data.

    Hey! I'm getting this too. When I set up my watch initially, I think I accidentally clicked an Asian language and had to change it back to English. Did you do something similar?

    I noticed that if I force pressed while in a text message thread would allow me to change to my foreign language (Japanese).

    To remove that Japanese language there, What I did was go into Settings--> Language and Region and delete the foreign language.
    (See attached)

    I then changed my watch's language (using the app on iPhone) to a different language, waited for it to load, back to english, waited for it to load, then rebooted the watch. Now if I force press in the messages thread, I don't see my foreign language.

    Hopefully this fixes my notification issue.
