    I've had ios10 and the os3 betas downloaded for a few days now. I woke up this morning and now when I receive texts from contacts it shows up as their phone number and not the contact name. Has anyone had this happen and know how to fix it?

    Have you done the customary rebooting both devices and/or unpairing and re-pairing the AW?

    I had the same thing. It went away on its own after a couple of days.

    I have the same problem. The usual reboot of devices hasn't done the trick so really not sure what is going on.

    Had this happen once. Quick reboot fixes the issue.

    I've this problem come and go consistently. It was happening on watchOS 2 as well as on watchOS 3 beta. Sometimes contacts names will not appear on the watchh, sometimes they will..

    Go to Apple watch app on your iPhone, General, Reset, Reset Sync Data. It should fix the issue. Good luck
