So this was happening on both my Gear Fit2 Pro AND my older Gear Fit2. It also happened with the Textra messaging app AND the stock Samsung messaging app. I tried every single solution given in this thread and nothing worked. (Note8) Today, I ordered a FitBit because I HAVE to have a watch that gives me my text notifications. My grandmother had a stroke last week and I was late seeing updates my mom was sending via texts because I couldn't feel my phone vibrate or ring a few times. I decided to play around with it one more time and now this thing works. I literally JUST did this, so I don't know if it will last forever, but maybe someone else still stuggling might have success with it too (doggone shame Samsung can't fix it). -Go to Apps and unistall Gear Fit Plugin. -Once it uninstalled, it automatically asked if I wanted to uninstall the Samsung Accessory Sevice...I selected yes. -I left the Galaxy Wearable app installed and opened it. -When I selected to connect to my Gear Fit2 Pro, it said it would have to do a factory reset on the watch. -After the factory reset and the reconnection to my phone, I chose NOT to restore my backed up info to the Gear Fit2 Pro, I went into the notification settings and chose show while wearing and show while on phone. I also went into connections and chose remote connection. -I received a notification for the next two SMS I received, so it's working now, but who knows for how long. (I just received another notification from a text as I was typing this, so that's 3). For me, I guess there was either a glitch in the Gear Fit Plugin app OR the Samsung Accessory Service app. I will say this, before I did the above steps, I went into the Gear Fit Plugin settings and when I would deselect notifications from SMS, my Gear Fit2 Pro would disconnect from my phone then reconnect on its own. I did that 4 times and it disconnected then reconnected each time. Good luck to all!
