Hey Guys,

After having a Watch S0 from launch and recently upgrading to an S4 i'm amazed that Watch OS/IOS doesn't notify you when your watch and iPhone are seperated. This seems like such a basic and useful feature to prevent you from forgetting your phone or knowing its been taken away from you.

Are there any Apps that offer this functionality?

Cheers

There is an app called Lookout. I used to use it a few years ago but IIRC they removed the watch connectivity alert, or at least moved it to a subscription model.

Also shocked this isn’t a feature. I’ve sent feedback to Apple requesting it. I tried two apps, WatchIt and Phone Buddy. WatchIt never worked properly but Phone Buddy is pretty good. I use it daily and the customer support is top notch. If you have any questions about it, I can answer them.
