    Hey everyone, is it possible for both my apple watch and iPhone to vibrate and alert me when I get a new text or email? Right now it seems to only be alerting/vibrating the watch and not the phone.

    the point of the watch is to take notifications away from the phone when you're wearing it...

    Mine does this with no problem. Do not choose the "mirror your phone" setting. Do a custom setting. Like many other features, the factor settings suck! lol

    Wrong. The point of it is to perform up to it's capabilities. It can indeed do what the OP is asking. I think he was asking for help rather than an opinion what the meaning of life is.

    Nope. You just gave him the "point of the watch" which was just as useless.

    I understand what your saying, but I want my phone to also vibrate for texts so its easier for me to respond

    Nah, I think the meaning of life is much more useless. Like... why was it even brought up? what is the meaning of life anyway?
