    How do I get notifications on both phone and watch. Sometimes I do not feel the haptic vibration of hear the watch so I want my phone to still sound off when I get an email, text or phone call.

    Sorry for the newbie question but it is my first day with the watch.

    like any Apple device where ever you answer the notification first with stop/silence it on other devices. Now if you don't answer/view an incoming notification it will ping/sound off on all the devices that are aloud to receive that notification. In your case if you want the notification to go off on your phone and watch then just don't answer/view it when it comes in until both your phone and watch receive it.

    For me there is up to a 13 sec delay between when my iPhone received at message notification until my AW alerts me. So I still pick up my phone first 95% of the time.

    I am not answering the notification. If I get an email, the only way I know is to look at my watch and see the red dot or if I look at my phone. The email could have come 30 minutes ago and I will not know unless I look at my watch for the dot or look at my phone.

    I feel like I am missing the haptic vibration and even the watch ding so I want my phone to make the same noise it always has when I get an email or text before I started to use the watch.

    Is there a setting I need to use to keep the sounds active on my phone while using the watch?

    It is ashamed the option is not there but after a few days I am feeling the haptic vibe and actually hearing the ding in even noisy areas.

    Still think the option should be there for those who want.

    I've had this delay too, which coming from my garmin vivosmart is odd as that used to buzz most of the time before my phone did!
