    Upgraded my phone to ios11gm which in turn forced the watch to 3.2.3

    I noticed that my alarms no longer show up/vibrate on my watch. Nothing at all. Other alerts seem fine. Is this normal?

    Not get them on watch os4 GM either. At least alarms set on my phone. Which sucks cuz I sleep with my watch and liked hitting snooze from the watch

    Well that's annoying. I don't typically sleep with mine but I do make use of alarms a lot and snoozing/stopping from the watch is very convenient.

    My alarms sound and vibrate on my AW S2 running watchOS 4 (from an iPhone 7 running iOS 11). I just tested an ordinary alarm, and I use the Sommeil/Bedtime feature every weekday morning. As long as my Watch is not in Airplane Mode (which I sleep with it in sometimes to save battery), then the Watch sounds and vibrates. It did this morning.

    I set a new one just now and it worked on my watch. When I had the problem the other day I snoozed 4 times and it never fired off on the watch. I wonder if it's something about alarms that were set prior to the upgrade or something... New ones seem fine.

    Mine aren’t working either. Just tried setting a new alarm, iPhone went off but AW remained silent. I too enjoy snoozing from he AW, hope they fix this soon.

    AW 2, WatchOS 4 and iOS 11. Alarms are working OK for me. The Siri face shows a snooze countdown.

    For me alarm works, but not haptic alarm (in silent mode). Not even if I try to set a new alarm. AW S2.

    That’s it!! I always keep my AW in haptic mode; I’m still not getting haptic alerts.

    Have you tried adjusting the haptic strength in the iPhone Apple Watch app? I thought someone said that with watchOS 4 they had the haptic setting change or not work until they adjusted it again in settings.

    I redid my haptic settings on both my S2 watch and the iPhone app. Still no haptic with alarm. Alarm only works with sound. I have woken up to my Apple Watch haptic since day one so this is very disappointing.

    Yes. Also I have tried hard reset etc. Haptic works for everything else but not with the alarm clock in silent mode.

    I had the same issue, no Taptic on my watch just for alarms — and reported it to apple and they took my watch logs to see the issue.

    However, I did read a fix for this and it works. Go to your alarms on your iPhone and set a new alarm with a ring tone AND a vibration (all of my previous alarms were set w no vibration before)

    Now it’s fixed. You don’t even have to use THAT specific alarm ever or even set any other alarms with a vibration.

    But now all alarms set on your phone or even directly on your watch will vibrate again.

    Weird, huh?
