Ive set multiple reminders via my watch multiple times and it just won't remind me of my reminders. I get no alert at all.

I then set a few reminders with my phone (iPhone 6, Vers: 8.3). The phone isn't alerting me of my reminders either. Its weird because when I open up the reminders app, the reminders are there. Its not like the phone won't set the reminder when I make it.

I checked to see if reminders was turned on in iCloud and it wasn't. So i turned it on, but I'm still not getting my reminders.

Anyone have any idea whats going on? Hope I don't have to do a restore just get my reminders to work.

This might be a silly question, but are you setting times/dates to be reminded at?

For example, if I tell my watch to "Remind me to feed the dog", it will go into my Reminders app but never remind me. If I say "Remind me to feed the dog at 5 pm", then I'll get the notification at 5.

Havre you tried "Reset Sync Data" under general settings, it corrects calendar sync issues.

Yea, i make sure to use specific times.

I don't see that option under general settings.

EDIT: Figured it out. I didn't realize I had to set set my default list in Reminders to iCloud, but thanks.
