Watch 47 Notifications Issue

I have had my watch now for about a week. I receive notifications for text messages but nothing else. I have notifications enabled on my phone for Wyze, Gmail, Calendar, Weather, etc. I have the same aps enabled in the Wyze ap. I am getting notifications on my phone but none but texts on the watch. Phone is a Samsung Galaxy J3. What am I missing?

I set my Wyze Watch 47 up last night and I’m having mixed issues with notifications. I receive all text notifications from everyone but my wife. Not sure if that’s by design, I appreciate the respite sometimes, but she didn’t find the humor. We are both using Samsung S21 models on T-mobile network. The bizarre thing is my co workers text notifications come through, he uses a Note 20 Ultra. I initially thought it was a Samsung Messaging issue but I’ve received notifications from an S9 through a S21 Ultra, just not my wife’s S21.

I sent Wyze a ticket but don’t expect much as tech support and customer support in general has been lacking lately. I’m hoping a future firmware update corrects it or I can just strap my G-Shock back on.

I just received my 47 and I don’t see a lot I would be able to use it for. I only purchased it to control my Stereo by bluetooth. The song playing did show up on the watch but there was no way to change songs or control the volume.I have no intent for any of the fitness apps on it. I did add my grandsons picture to the watch. Maybe there will be a firmware update to make it able to control a stereo and reply to text or facebook in the future. But it is a nice looking watch with a really clear screen.Its a good start but needs to be customizable as to what the customers needs are.

Hmmm, sounds like a different problem than what i had. I was only getting standard SMS at first. Found that both wyze apps needed to have notification permission access in the phone settings itself for everything else to work.

I have both turned on and get notifications from almost every app I select and all people, except my wife. It is really weird.

I can’t be 100% sure but it seems the text notifications I don’t receive are all on the T-mobile network.

I’m having a similar issue where I don’t get all the texts notification. Sometimes my watch vibrates and sometimes it doesn’t but mostly doesn’t. My Wyze band works really good. I don’t know…

This is EXACT same issue I am having with Wyze watch 47mm. Here is the situation:

T-Mobile users (2 of them) with Samsung S21. Send message to my phone (LG) and watch does NOT display notification.

AT&T users, IPhone users, even the phone sending messages to itself, all are successful.

Just no notifications on watch if text came from S21 and TMobile. Probably just because an S21 but dont know anyone with S21 on different carrier.
