Based on the problems I had, detailed here, https://forums.macrumors.com/thread...n-apps-different.1879565/page-2#post-21277597

I've been taking a not of apps which do not vibrate or make a sound on Watch when a notification comes through (the red dot appears, but that's it).

Let's see if it's the same for everyone. Note this problem only seems to manifest itself in apps that don't have a dedicated Watch app - those always seem to notify just fine.

Apps which don't notify properly, ever
Facebook
Gumtree
Buzzfeed

Have you gone in to each app on the iPhone watch app and set them up correctly?

Thankfully, I turned off Facebook notifications to the watch immediately on getting it and they don't come to the watch at all. It'd be really annoying if that didn't work!

Facebook's behaviour is inconsistent for me. It worked first but now sometimes I don't get a notification, given that all the settings are correct, I doublechecked.
