    This is a real problem. I even set my phone to vibrate for emails and set watch to mirror phone. Nope. Neither did setting notifications in watch app itself help.

    I hope Apple will deal with this.

    I've had similar problems on my series 3 where not all notifications seem to work, hit or miss at times.

    I usually end up rebooting both the phone and watch but series 4 does seem to be more miss and than hit at the moment.

    Yeah, rebooting does nothing. The notifications are perhaps the highest priority for me and they are so glitchy. Running iOS 12 on an iPhone 8. Boo.

    Don’t mirror the iPhone, rather, choose custom and enable haptic etc per email account

    Same issue here with an AW3 and a XS Max.

    Its really irritating. Some TXT (from Android people) don't even show up on my watch. E-mails are hit and miss for haptic feedback.

    So the Outlook mail app works perfectly, all my work emails provide a notification ( ping and buzz ) on my Watch.

    So there must be a bug in the native email app from Apple.

    I might just use a different email app

    What total garbage. I'd be embraced for new AW4 owners who cannot get the simplest thing like this to work.

    This is not a universal problem. Email notifications are working for me using Mail, Outlook and Spark.

    What are you on about??? He’s on your side!! He’s saying it looks bad on Apple that something so simple is causing so many issues for a lot! SMH, JHC!

    I think there was a bug introduced in on of the beta's, then it was fixed, and then it came back again. I'm having the same issue. I just installed Outlook and problem solved. Not ideal as I would rather use the native app, but I not getting email notifications is really annoying

    Common sense would tell you that if email notifications are working for some, then far from being 'total garbage', this is likely a problem impacting some users for reasons that are rather less obvious than a bug or software implementation fault. That it isn't a total anything.

    Likewise, that there are some posting that it impacts earlier models than S4 devices, that it isn't a series 4-specific issue either.

    I meant “embarrassed”. Autocorrect can be funny sometimes. And chill out. I’m pissed my AW3 is having issues with simple notifications. It’s complete BS. How does crap like this get by Apple?

    The fact that in IOS12 the mail altert is set to “None” tells me Apple didn’t do much testing for the GM. I had the previous betas with no issues.

    My experience is that each time I have gone through an initial setup, the default has been 'None', for mail notifications.

    In every other sense, my previous comments stand.

    I’ve never had that issue before.

    The current bug is widespread.

    The same to me to aw3 also to aw4. I am wondering if setup as new phone and setup as new watch fix the problem, but i am too headache to do all of this. I download the gmail app and this is working like a charm. also to is not working auto fitness reminder when you start to walk, in the first 3 betas was working but not anymore.

    Hey guys,

    This is a bug with WatchOS 5 and apparently according to this thread apple is aware of it and working on it.

    https://discussions.apple.com/message/33910428?start=0&tstart=0

    I have the same issue and when I setup custom notification on the watch, it doesn’t notify it at all. Even when I get mail I can’t swipe down to dismiss in the watch also.
