    I received four texts since I got the watch running, but no notification on the watch that there were messages. I have notifications turned on for both messaging and Verizon messaging, but neither come through. Any ideas?

    This might be a silly question, but did you update the watch firmware and made sure the apps in question are set to receive notifications?

    Yep, it's a silly question.
    I cleared the cache and data for the gear manager. That got it working again.

    And yes,joesgs4a, you are correct!
    I checked getting messages with the phone on and dark. With the phone on, no notification, but with the phone dark, I get a notification on the watch.
