    Ever since I downloaded iOS 10 and the new Watch OS, I haven't been getting every notification on my watch. I will get a few here and there, but the majority of my notifications do not show up on my watch. All my settings are ok and I've already re-paired the watch to my phone. Anyone else having this issue?

    If your phone screen is on at the time a new message comes in, your watch will not notify you...(that's how it is for me)...

    Like said about unpaid and repair. Reboot both devices.

    It's been happening with iMessage, ESPN, and GroupMe most often. I've noticed it happens when I'm getting a lot of notifications in a short amount of time.

    Did it again last night. We'll see how it goes today.

    I wasn't trying to be snarky with you so you can stop feeling offended.

    ...thus far, working correctly, or?
    Also, what if you restart BOTH the phone and then the watch (in that order)?

    In wondering if what happened is what I experienced. You paired with the new phone and all is right? I hope it's a one time bug and it's not something I have to do again and again. So far so good.

    I'm having a similar problem.

    If the iPhone is unlocked, I don't get any notifications on my watch. If my Mac is unlocked, I don't get any notifications on my iPhone OR my watch. It's really annoying. I want notifications to pop up on all 3 at the same time. Or at least all route to my watch as the primary.

    I don't know why, but my Mac seems to be a dictator. My Bluetooth headphones usually connect to the last paired device (like my iPhone or iPad) BUT if my Mac is unlocked, it forces the headphones to connect to it. I have to delete the headphones in preferences to stop this from happening.

    I am having the same issue with notifications from the news app. I get maybe 1 out of every 10 notifications. I get notifications for everything else though. I figure an un-pair and re-pair would do the trick. But since my iPhone 7 is coming in three days I figure I'd just wait until then. Hopefully this resolves my issues like it resolved yours.

    I have this same problem in a way, when my Watch is off my wrist and locked it still handles all my notifications and my phone stays silent

    I just got my new Apple watch. Notifications for my text messages worked last night for a few messages, now no sound or haptic alerts. I've been on the phone with senior advisor at Apple, we went through unpairing, rechecking all settings and now he's sending the diagnostic info from my phone to the engineers. I noticed this was a big problem with the first watch series, would think they would have addressed it by now.
