    Hi all,

    Just got my watch this afternoon, really happy with it so far. One thing I've noticed though is that although i've turned off some notifications mirroring from my phone to my watch (specifically whatsapp), those notifications still come through. I've double checked and the option to mirror alerts from Whatsapp is definitely switched off. Is there something I'm missing here or is there a bug somewhere along the line?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've gone to the Watch app > Notifications and checked off Mirror iPhone Alerts from Whatsapp, but they still go through. I want them to go to the phone but not the watch, but I can't seem to get it to turn them off on the watch.

    Same issue here. Never had a problem before (have had the watch for about a year), but since OS 3, anything that goes on my lockscreen on my phone is coming to my watch, even when mirror is turned off... done the reboot dance and everything.

    Very very odd and annoying. I really really don't want facebook or emails on my watch.

    Hey, just so you know... this morning I rebooted the watch. Then later that morning I rebooted the phone. That seems to have cleared up the issue for me!

    Good luck!

    On a similar note, am I the only one not getting scheduled Breathe reminder notifications?

    I did this earlier too and it seems to be the fix!

    I have trouble with notifications too. But with group messaging, I have the thread on DND but it always rings on my watch. Pretty annoying.
