I have had my watch 5 for a while now but I realised I wasn't getting notifications. After lots (and lots) of checking, rebooting, resetting and running through all options I realised I only get notifications IF I have sound on and the volume not on zero.
If I turn the sound OFF and to vibrate ON I get no notifications, no orange dot or vibrate. Nothing. Unless I have it on sound. I have ravaged the internet for anyone with the same, but nothing.
Am I missing something or has an update broke this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
AH HA - I just missed loads of messages and realised there has to be some odd, odd setting. So I went to Notifications on the Wearable app on my phone, then Help with Notifications an dclicked an error. It says I wasn't wearing my watch (which I am). Then it mentions the 'if you have a wrist tattoo it may not work'.
Guess what I have? Yep tattoos on my wrist. Why this has suddenly happened I don't know and why the orange dot isn't there I also don't know but I suspect this is at least a start for figuring the issue.
However - the suggested solution for us types is to go to Settings>Security and turn off Wrist Detection. However I don't have that setting so I can't do that.
So next question is - how do I turn off Wrist Detection?
I have a Watch6 Classic. Same issue. I thought I was going crazy. I have returned one watch and was about to reset my phone.
FOLD 5 and watch 6 classic. I get the notifiactions, but not an alert or sound or vibration... just the orange dot. Is there a Beta for for watch 6 as well?
