    Recently I've noticed that text messages and iMessage notifications vibrate on my iPhone first, and maybe 30-60 seconds later pop up on my Apple watch. I have tried to do a reset of both my watch and iPhone but still the same problem. My watch was working perfectly before!

    Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    Some have posted about this before. Sometimes resetting your watch and then repairing will fix it for good.

    This has just started happening with mine as well. Everything was perfect from launch day until 2 days ago. Very strange. I've rebooted everything a few times.. I guess I'll try resetting/pairing. I imagine, in about 6 weeks, it'll happen again though.

    Look into the settings and mirroring your phone when in silent/vibrate mode. Try un-silencing your iPhone and see if that change anything.

    This is the most common bug of 1.0.1. Don't reset and un-pair your watch those are major steps for serious issues. For the Messages one just go to your phone's Settings/Notifications/Messages toggle off Allow Notifications wait a minute and then toggle it back on. That will fix it, until the next time and then you'll do it again. Hopefully the next update will fix it permanently.

    It happened to me today. Also I could not ping my phone from the watch. After hours on the phone with Apple senior support, she said to unpair and re-pair.....they would not pair. So as a last resort. I had to reset my phone and set it up as a new phone.....( not to use a backup). This seemed to take for ever.
    When it had finished installing a clean copy of IOS 8.3, I tried to pair again. It worked and now everything is perfect. It seems there was something on my iPhone that was causing the problem.

    Having the same problem too. I was quite surprised to unlock my phone and see an e-mail sitting in my inbox for the past 10 minutes since I never got the notification on my watch.

    Smooth sailing up until today. Very frustrating. I haven't changed any settings that would stop the notifications from coming.

    Bump - anyone got a solution to this other than wipe your iPhone and Watch and start again?

    Yeah, just wait it out. This will happen to me every once in awhile- sometimes one random occurrence, other times for a long streak of messages/notifications. Unless the problem persists for days (perhaps over a day), you should be able to just relax and ride it out. I've had plenty of times where I haven't done squat when this starts to happen and it disappears just like that.

    Another suggestion though, is to toggle your Bluetooth on/off (or really off/on) in the settings on your iPhone.

    I disabled Messages Notifications on the iPhone (Settings/Notifications/Messages), waited a few mins, turned it back on and all is well in the world again.

    Hoping there will be a 1.0.2 coming soon.

    Worst come to worst turn off blue tooth and at least your phone will start to make noises again!
