    I just picked up my first apple watch and was wondering about the expected behaviour when a notification is received on the watch. My understanding was that the screen would light up and show the notification every time - is this correct?

    I currently have silent mode on and when I get a tap (vibrate notification) the screen does not come on.

    Sort of... the screen will come on when you flip your wrist shortly after the tap.
