    Quick questions about notifications on the Apple watch ...

    - If you enable notifications from the Apple Watch companion app so that notifications show up on Apple Watch .... Do they still vibrate on the iPhone at the same time you get a Taptic feel from the watch ? Does turning on notification for Apple Watch silence notifications on the iPhone ? I dont want multiple Alarms going off around me.

    - If you respond to a notification on the Apple Watch does it relfect your actions ? (lets say you close a notification from the watch ... does it still show up on the lock screen of the phone ? )

    Notifications have not been well informed to the public by the recent reviews, insted chosing to only say that too many notifications were happening on the wrist ...

    thanks guys

    From what I remember if you are wearing the watch it goes to the watch only and when you are not wearing the watch it goes to the phone. Not sure if there is an option for both? (which makes no sense)

    Nice !
    So the apps that I chose to push notifications to the watch (via the Apple Watch companion app) are not going to do notification on the phone, but the ones I did not chose to push notifications to the phone will still continue to appear on the phone ?

    Wish I had answers in that detail but I don't sorry. We'll have to wait and see.

    I would like to get notifications always on my iPhone regardless of wether its unlocked or not. Does anyone know if that is possible now that I paired it with my Apple Watch?

    answer?

    Does anyone else have a problem ANSWERING the phone?

    I tap on the green answer icon, nothing, then press and hold, nothing. I know the screen is working but it really doesn't want to answer.

    I've tried tapping and swiping? Is there a specific movement for this?

    yes, the notifications still come through on your phone/lock screen. You can just dismiss them from the watch if you want.

    I'm doing other things with my Watch, not notifications. So far it's rather interesting.

    I received and placed a call without any issues. The speaker volume wasn't bad either. I was home and the TV was on. I could hear without holding it up to my ear.

    I wish the phone would still make the notification sound when I get emails or messages. I can hear the phone alerts but not always the watch alerts, especially in a noisy place. (yeah I know, theres adjustable taptic, but still)
    Plus, I have different sounds for incoming mail and iMessage, but the watch has this one generic 'ding' for all notifications. :mad:

    I agree for some reason I still like getting message and email alerts on the phone even with the watch on. Maybe all get used to just using the watch but for now I miss not getting them on the phone. Turning on "Prominent Haptic" helps to ensure you don't miss a message.
