    Is anyone else having a problem where their watch doesn't vibrate when you get a text. I get the vibration with every other notification and I'd say maybe 1/7 texts.

    Not sure of your details so I will throw out two thoughts.

    You need sounds on in notifications on your phone settings in order to alert your watch.

    You need your phone screen locked in order to alert your watch. If the phone is unlocked, it assumes you're looking at it already and will not alert your wrist.

    What's happening is with MOST texts I get, I only get the sound on the watch, and not the haptic feedback. Seems to only be happening with texts. All other app notifications give me sound and vibration 100% of the time.
