Hi Brent

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.

More information:

About notifications on your Apple Watch - Apple Support

You may find that, if you turn off Wrist Detection (on your iPhone, in the Watch app, go to: My Watch> General> Wrist Detection), it causes all notification alerts to be delivered to both devices. However, you will not then be able to benefit from features including Apple Pay and a single unlock after placing the watch on your wrist.

If you would like Apple to consider adding an option for notification alerts to be delivered to both devices irrespective of other settings, you can suggest it here:

You may also wish to check your settings:

On your iPhone, in the Watch app, go to: My Watch (bottom left ta> Sounds & Haptics:

- Check the Alert Volume;

- Check that Silent Mode is not enabled;

- Check that Haptic Strength is set to the middle or far right hand side of the slider.

On your iPhone, in the Watch app, go to: My Watch> Messages:

- Perhaps choose Custom and check - under Alerts - that Show Alerts, Sound and Haptic are each enabled.
