I had notifications until I changed the theme on my phone then they stopped. Annoyingly I had to factory reset to fix it. Anyone else changed the theme and lose the notificatons?

Very helpful! I changed the theme about the same time the notifications went bad. It lets a few notifications through but not many. Very undependable. Also, now it won't light up when I shake by wrist either. If Samsung endorses the different themes, then why don't they work? If I do a hard reset, can I not go back to the theme I bought? :-(

Samsung, give us a fix please!

I had a same problem but I turned off the watch and back on and checked the "show while using phone option" on the Samsung gear app on the phone and now it works. But I did a bunch of other stuff so I don't know exactly what I did fixed the problem.

 

Samsung Gear app - > notifications - > show while sing phone.

My S8+ stopped sending me text notifications a few days ago. All other notifications work. I also see the texts in my messages app on the watch, so they are being received - just no notifications.

 

Any fixes to this? I did notice like others that in the Gear App on the phone, there is not an option to turn off/on Messages under Notifications and I do think that option was there before.

I have the same problem as well.  I had the issue a couple days ago, but a watch restart cleared it up. Now it's not working again. And why is there no "Messsages" app listed in the "Manage notifications" section of the Gear app? 

 

And seriously.... WHY HASN'T ANYONE FROM SAMSUNG JUMPED IN HERE YET???

I did a factory reset on my Gear S3 which has finally cleared things up. I noticed that while connecting the S3 to the Gear App on my Galaxy S8+ that a number of S3 stock apps showed up in the Notification manager. The Messages option was missing before, but now it's back along with about 6 other missing apps.

 

Sucks that I had to factory reset my watch, re-install watch apps and faces, re-authorize my credit card for Samsung Pay, upload music and photos, and then reconfigure all my settings just to get text notifications to work.

 

Not a happy camper here.

Same issue here.  No notifications for texts or emails.  BUT, it's not the watch in my opinion.   I have a Gear S3 Frontier and a Gear Fit 2.  And BOTH stopped showing notifications at the same time.
