    Anyone else finding that notifications appear on the Watch even though you're using the app said notifications come from on your iPad?

    E.g. I'll be having a conversation on Facebook messenger on my iPad and my Watch keeps vibrating each time I receive a message.

    If I use the messenger app on the phone then the notifications on the watch stop, as expected.

    My iPad, iPhone and Watch are all on the same iCloud and iMessage accounts.

    Very annoying.

    It is because its not synced to your iPad, its synced to your phone which is what it was designed for.

    Apple needs to sort these kinds of things out. It should know you are looking at your phone, iPad, MacBook, and if so, not send to the Watch. We now have 4 devices and we don't need them all beeping and buzzing and tapping at the same time.
