    I’m getting texts but there is no sound and my watch doesn’t light up. Anyone know why this would be?

    I'm experiencing the same thing, where I'll get a text, however my watch does not notify me that one came through. I noticed after a little bit of experimenting that the text does come through to the watch, i.e., swiping down, I see the text, but the watch never notified me of the inbound text.

    I turned on the sound, (which was off), to see if that fixes the issue, but so far I've not received any texts, to report on the success/failure of that.

    Do not disturb is on ? Is the setting on the Apple Watch notifications set to mirror ?

    It’s finally working now for a few days. I think my watch needed to get acclimated to the network.

    Thanks!
