    No, it's not supposed to stay on all the time like on iPhone. No point as it'll wake itself up at the appropriate time and you'll know this when you detect the haptics.

    Wake up on the appropriate time you mean just before I get ready to turn?.... Cause it didn't wake up. It woke up 100-200m before while I was on a big straight and get to sleep again after some seconds.... Didn't woke up just before the turn.

    Why do you mean detect haptics? No haptics during the travel.

    Do you have it turned off? Most of us have it on as we can discriminate left/right turns from the different haptic patterns (continuous tapping for right turns and three sets of taps with a pause in between for left turns).

    Well you do need that on, but you also need to have haptic on if you want to feel the taps.

    I suppose it's a bug then. Hopefully Apple will fix it. In the meantime, try rebooting, as several individuals in those threads have found success with this as a temporary fix.

    I just reboot watch and it worked.

    So from what I see 3 solid taps is for turning left and 3 to 6 quick small taps is for right ?

    From Apple:

    Follow directions. After you tap Start and head off on your first leg, Apple Watch uses taps to let you know when to turn. A steady series of 12 taps means turn right at the intersection you’re approaching; three pairs of two taps means turn left. Not sure what your destination looks like? You’ll feel a vibration when you’re on the last leg, and again when you arrive.
