    when i'm wearing my watch and i get a message, only my watch notify's me and my iphone doesnt make a sound or even lights up.
    Isn't it possible that both notify me?
    I'm missing messages because i can't feel the haptic on the watch sometimes and my iphone stays quiet/not light up......very annoying!
    I just can't make it happen, tried just about anything.
    Any help please?

    Some watches have been shipping with defective/light taptic feedback. You may need to contact support to see if it is a set up issue or if your watch is bad.

    You could try resetting the watch and starting set up all over again.

    You iPhone will not provide you a notification when wearing your favorite feature. This is by design. Perhaps in the future.

    As Kramer says, it's either or, depending on whether your iPhone is locked or not. It doesn't seem to work for the iPad though, so it's not iCloud account based. I still get notifications on both devices.

    Is this true?? Where in settings can you activate this feature (I've been wanting to only have my watch's taptic feedback notify me when the watch is on). Currently my phone and watch both vibrate
