    For months now, on both watches I've had a CNN app. Before I'd get my vibration, hasn't happen on either Watch now. I get the alert pop up in the notification of the Watch but never alerted to it?

    Anyone have the same issue? Fix?

    Same here. Alert appears without haptic or sound notification. It's been like this for some time.

    Yeah, I'll search for another good national news app that can push alerts.

    Great idea. I could have that set to multiple news site. Probably would disable the vibrate from my other news apps then... I guess I would still want those updates but totally silent. No virbate/sound.

    you can play around with the settings until you get the optimum responses to your liking.

    for me i ended up picking one particular news source (to avoid duplicate updates) because some breaking news tend to be common across the news channels

    Does anyone have a comparison of the Breaking News vs. Associated Press vs. Apple News vs. CNN?
    I've switched over to this Apple news feed but wondering if that will still send updates or alerts?

    That Breaking News App is that just the latest/most popular up to the minute stories?

    The AP seems to have the Haptic alert just before the notification shows up. I like it that way.

    Early days yet! It is good to have choice of sources for US breaking news - the UK I have covered by the BBC and Sky news apps. Only comment is that a news alert doesn't seem to show the source of the story.

    I used Breaking News and thought it was great. I saw today it's been discontinued. What's everyone using in its place now?
