Alerts on phone as normal with watch.

Views: 369 Replies: 4
I need my phone to alert me as it used to before purchasing Watch. When I paired my watch I no longer have the same sounds as before on phone. My watch alerts me but it is so gentle (It is set to highest, loudest) I miss texts because of the work I am doing.

Hi

If you turn off Wrist Detection (on your iPhone, in the Watch app, go to: My Watch> General> Wrist Detection), all notification alerts will be delivered to both devices.

However, you will not then be able to benefit from features including Wake Screen on Wrist Raise, Apple Pay and a single unlock after placing the watch on your wrist.

Otherwise (with Wrist Detection enabled), how notifications behave depends on the status of your devices. In order to bring notifications to your attention as soon as possible:

- If your iPhone is unlocked, you will receive notifications on your iPhone instead of on your watch.

- If your iPhone is locked or asleep and your watch is unlocked (regardless of whether the watch screen is asleep or awake) and on your wrist, you will receive notifications on your watch.

- If your watch is locked or has Do Not Disturb enabled, notifications will go to your iPhone.
