    Hi everybody,

    a short question, maybe somebody can help: I am using an Apple watch and an iPhone. My understanding is that with the watch (at least when is is at my wrist) the iPhone shouldn't light up anymore when receiving a push notification – but it does. As I'd like to save battery time on my iPhone and pretty sure that the "iPhone display stays off" behavior was featured by Apple: How can I fix this? I see no setting for this and didn't find a solution in the Internet. Does the push notification somehow reaches my iPhone "too fast" before it is sent to my watch?

    If anybody knows a solution, I would be grateful to know. Thanks so much in advance!

    Do you have wrist detection enabled on the watch?

    That did the trick - thanks!!! (I turned off automatic lightening up the watch display when lifting the arm (which I don't want) and probably accidentally turned off the "normal" wrist detection per se too. Thanks again!
