    I've had my watch since October now and it has worked great. Over the weekend, I decided to be an idiot and go mountain biking without a plastic bag for my phone on the chance of rain.

    Well it rained. A lot. And now my iPhone is dead. (iWatch of course handled the water like a boss!!)

    So here I am now with a spare iPhone 5S I got from work. I set up my apple watch again and now every time I get a text or iMessage and read it on my phone, it still notifies me on my watch and is never cleared from the notification center unless I manually do this.

    I've tried resetting the watch and phone multiple times, turning notifications off and on for iMessage... airplane mode...

    Anyone have this issue? I only haven't tried completely erasing the watch again because it is kinda a pain and I have to re-do my Apple Pay each time.

    help please!

    Did you ENABLE HANDOFF in the Watch app AND the iPhone setting?

    The setting was on in both, I just checked. I toggled them both just now, maybe that will do the trick
