    since I got my watch last week, notifications will work for about 2 hours and then stop. The phone needs to be restarted for it to resume again. When it stops working, notifications come through and light up the phone and bypass the watch. I have a genius appointment Saturday at 4. Any ideas?

    There's a known software bug where the watch no longer detects the iPhone, requiring a restart. I've run into this bug maybe 4 times on my launch day Watch. However, if this has been occurring on a daily basis for you then it's a bigger problem than a bug, possibly a hardware defect.

    I see. I will report back with the genius's opinion. How can I tell it's not the iPhone?

    If i leave my watch on my nightstand and go to work, when I get home should my watch continue to work as if nothing happened or do I have to re-pair?

    It definitely should continue to work without having to re-pair.

    Not re-pair in a sense, but turn Bluetooth on and off and then hard reset phone

    That's still not normal if it's happening on a regular basis.
