    So I've got an AW2 and I get the notifications from messenger on my watch but I can't always read them. It's like the app crashes. So end up getting my phone out which defeats the object!

    Anyway I've used Google and tried the fix with changing an auto response. Works for a while and then goes back to not working.

    I've tried force quit and unpairing and repairing and again out works for a while and then stops working again.

    I'm getting frustrated, is it a watch issue or an app issue?

    Assuming that you are talking about the FB Messenger, mine has not worked since I got my AW2 but it worked fine on my first Watch a couple years back. Still doesn't work right...

    Doesn't sync right, it shows messages from last year and nothing current from today or yesterday.

    I have the AW0 (with the latest watchOS) and while I get notifications for my facebook messages every time I open the messenger app it takes at least 5 minutes to load all the new messages

    I've been having the same problem with FB Messenger app on my Series 0, the app loads but just a blank screen for several minutes until it finally loads messages. Must be a buggy app.

    I haven't experienced any issues on my AW2. It pings up the message on my watch before my phone.

    It shows messenger notifications. But if you open the messenger app, it loads for some minutes without updating the messages.

    Was there ever a fix for this?

    I will get notifications for Facebook Messenger when I get a message but think that's a standard notification because of my phone

    However the app on the AW just refuses to load up this is all I get:
