Missing Notifications

I've noticed that when i am away from my phone with the Apple watch (series 5 cellular), not all notifications are received. I've noticed this at the gym, where in certain areas, although the mobile signal strength on the watch is at 2 bars, the watch appears to struggle with receiving mobile data. If a notification is received on the phone during this period, the notification is not received on the watch. When this happens - the notification will never get to the watch, even over wifi or bluetooth.

It appears that if the watch is "disconnected" when a notification arrives, it will never receive this notification when it re-connects. Quite often, i have left the gym to find i have had several missed notifications.

Is there a way for these notifications to be pushed on re-connection. I think this is an oversight from Apple?

Any thoughts
