    I can’t find any information on this issue but after updating to watchOS 4 I no longer receive stand reminder notifications! I have the first Apple Watch. I have tried restarting watch and also turning off notification for standing and turning it back on neither of these things have fixed the issue! Anyone else not getting stand reminders after update? Any idea how to fix it?

    Same here.

    I’m getting stand notifications but no activity ring closed notifications or all 3 goals complete notifications.

    Not seen a new style notification as yet either.

    I'm also having this issue. I just installed it last night. I'm not getting the "tap tap" on my wrist when an email comes in, either. I just set the wheelchair thing to "No" so we'll see if the stand notifications start coming in. Don't think I'll get all my stands today, but oh well.

    My S2 and my gf's S3 both aren't getting stand notices. I just changed the wheelchair setting so will hopefully be righted tomorrow (already completed stand today so can't know for sure). I just can't believe this oversight. No offense, but wheelchair users must be a very small percent. Yet the setting of "not set" rather than "no" by default affected a much greater number of users, with the steps to fix it not obvious at all.

    EDIT: This worked, thanks to yatbob! For the record and maybe to help get in search results for others trying to figure out a fix, here's the full steps to resolve:
    Open Health app on iPhone, tap the profile icon in the top right, tap "edit", tap "Wheelchair", Select "No" and save.
