    Now I dont know if this is Watch OS ... or iOS related ...
    I have a bunch of news apps on my iPhone ... they all have notifications at ON with sound.
    Then in the watch app I have the same news apps turned ON in the notifications setting for the watch.

    When my iPhone is unlocked .. all the news apps do a sound when I receive a notification.
    But when my iPhone is locked ... I half the time get a Haptic feedback from the apps !
    They show up in the notifications of the watch ... but no haptic ... so I miss alerts..

    All stock Apple Apps like iMessages never miss a haptic feedback ....

    Anyone of you getting the same treatment ?

    Certain apps never actually give me haptic feedback. Off the top of my head Facebook and instagram are the two I can think of.

    Seriously why do certain apps don't give haptic feedback ? that's one of the major selling points of the watch !!
    Do these companies have QA departments who actually try and use the apps before releasing them ?

    Amex is the same way. I get the notification I made a purchase with the $ amount, but there is no haptic. It is weird b.c my pebble use to give me haptic with everything.
