    Well just got my watch about two hours ago and cannot figure out why message are not alerting me on the watch. they come through fine on my 6plus and on my rMBP.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Let me rephrase...they are on the messages app on the watch, just fine. Just dont get notified via haptic.

    I had that issue. I turned up the vibration and now it's flawless.

    For me it seemed to be that I was using my phone almost all the times when a notification (text, email, calendar appt) was coming through. I guess, from what I read, the notifications only come through to the watch when you are NOT actively on the phone. Actively seems to equal doing anything with the screen on.

    Once I kept my screen off, by not using the phone, all the alerts came through.

    Realizing it kind of defeats the purpose to be on the phone and be notified via the watch when the phone is in front of my face.

    It may sound silly but I found out that I somehow turned on the do not disturb option which kept me from getting notification after I turn that off everything worked perfectly
