    Hello everyone,

    I set up to receive all notifications. I am getting messages, facebook, activity notifications, but not email. Neither from my gmail or my work exchange accounts. How do I fix it?

    Thanks.

    RJ

    Weird. I thought this watch was suppose to be all about notifications.

    I had to add Mail to Notification Center on my iPhone (under Settings->Notifications, move to "Include") to get any mail notifications on my Watch.

    It was already under include still not working. Do you have yours set up to show in locked screen? I wonder if that's it.

    You could be onto something here. Even though mine was set to notifications ON it was still in the not included section. I have manually dragged it over. Lets see if it works...

    It still didn't work.

    The notification came up on my iMac but not the phone or the watch.

    I tried this and I got the red dot above the 12 o'clock. I turned on show on locked screen for mail in notifications on iPhone.

    So I only get email on the watch if the phone is off / as in asleep. Although I had more problems as I was using the outlook app which added more confusion.

    I basically deleted everything and started again. Set up notifications on iPhone to include lock screen etc and then in the watch app turn them on and then click on my mail profile and turn on in there as well!!!

    Has been working but seem to need to add / enable in a few places.

    I just notice that if you select Custom instead of Mirror my iPhone the Alerts are set to OFF for all the emails. I've switched mine back on and will see if that helps.

    Under the Watch App on your phone go under notifications, then email, select custom, and turn "on" the email accounts you want. The mirror iPhone option didn't work for me.

    I have several Road Runner accounts and sometimes not all of the emails come through on my watch. My settings are correct. And I have trouble with some calendar items not showing up until 15 min. beforehand or not at all.

    For those having trouble, email on lock screen does NOT need to be turned on. I get my email notifications and do not have them set to appear on my phone's lock screen.
