    If it's just the haptic feedback that's not working but you're still getting a notification on your watch, then it could be a defective watch or you could have it too loose. If the watch is loose it can be difficult to feel the haptic feedback.

    If you're not getting notifications at all, then is your phone on? If the phone is on and unlocked then it doesn't send notifications to the watch, under the assumption that you're using the phone and you'll see the notification there.

    Try doing a reset. Also did you go into the haptic settings?

    Yea, settings are very limited
    If I turn volume all the way up I feel the haptic half the time, if I mute it NO HAPTIC. Wtf

    That definitely sounds like a defective watch:( if you have an apple store near by they should be able to replace it for you.

    I've done more testing. Not looking good. The most definitive was it was working only when volume was up then it stopped doing that too

    Call your Apple store and make sure they have replacement units in store, you'll probably walk out with a brand new watch.

    Thanks for this.....I could not understand why it worked sometimes and not others....as you say, it was because my phone was unlocked. :)

    My roommate just had his replaced after talking to support chat online and booking a genius bar appointment. He said it took 12 minutes and he walked out with a new 38mm sport blue.

    Mine was low/faint. Adjusted it in the settings in the Apple Watch App and it was fine after that. I do notice that I dont get it for some notifications, such as Instagram. But that isnt weird cause I dont get audio notifications on my phone from Instagram.

    It's called haptic feedback.

    The taptic engine generates haptic feedback.

    Haptic feedback from the proprietary TapTic engine. God, I hope the grammar Nazi's don't get a hold of this nuclear bomb of "who cares" :eek::eek:;)

    He was wrongly correcting people. Nipped in the bud now.

    The OP completely goofed. This thread is bogus.
