Hi Kimberly

Keep in mind that how notifications behave depends on the settings and status of your devices. With Wrist Detection enabled, 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.

My iphone is locked

wrist detection is enabled

do not disturb is not enabled on either device

i'm thinking there must be a setting that changed on my iphone, though. because i am using the Modular face on my watch and when i press on the weather, it goes to weather page and the flower just spins.

as i think about the timing, i believe i began having this issue after the ios update on my phone yesterday afternoon.

If you have not yet done so, it may help to also update your Apple Watch to the latest software:
  • Update the software on your Apple Watch - Apple Support

Otherwise - if your watch is already up to date - try the following steps:
  • Restart both your iPhone and your watch:Turn both devices off together, then restart your iPhone first;
  • To turn your watch off: press and hold the side button until you see the Power Off slider; drag it to turn off;
  • To turn it back on: press and hold the side button until you see the Apple logo.
  • Unpair and re-pair your watch:The Watch app on your iPhone takes a backup of your watch when unpairing via the app. Choose to Restore from Backup when offered the option during set up. Most data and settings will be restored, with some exceptions (eg Apple Pay cards, passcode).
  • Unpair your Apple Watch and iPhone - Apple Support
  • Set up your Apple Watch - Apple Support

I Had this issue with Facebook messenger once I updated iPhone and Iwatch to the latest iOS.

The iwatch would still vibrate as a message notification came through but no notification would be displayed on iwatch or iPhone.

I Checked all notifications settings on iphone and iwatch app and all was as it should be.

This afternoon I decided to launch the Facebook messenger app on the iwatch and since then the notifications have started to work again.
