    Hi,

    If I get a text/message or any notification for that matter, I get no haptic buzz and it only shows up on my watch if I raise it and look at it. What is the point?!!! This device is nothing like advertised. Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks

    Ive noticed a few things today:

    If I'm connected to the car's Bluetooth - no notifications
    If I'm walking and generally active - no notifications
    If I'm using my phone - no notifications

    The first two I'm sure are safety features to make sure you're not distracted and the last one is just to save battery since you're already seeing the notification.

    I seem to remember there was a reviewer or two who had faulty units with no haptic feedback and had to have them replaced.

    The last one is because you'll receive the notification on your phone but not receiving it whilst walking is STUPID. I'm returning mine if this is true.

    Talk to Apple support. My roommate was getting vibration 8/10 notifications and he just had his replaced at a local Apple store. 38mm blue sport.
