Hi.

I have more of a query than a problem. Everything seems to be working as it should but with WhatsApp notifications it automatically opens when I look at my watch when I feel a notification coming through. 

Is there a way to stop that from happening so that the name and contents of the message aren't just automatically on show?

Also, is there a way to stop notifications coming through if I am not wearing the watch? I'm sure I saw it somewhere but I can't find it anywhere now!

Thanks for any help :smiling-face:

I've the opposite problem.

I would like to see the content of WhatsApp notification, but i only see the red point. All the others (email, sms etc.) turn on my display and show the content, whatsapp doesn't. I don't know how i can activate the display of WhatsApp message.

Check on the Galaxy Wearable app mate. Go to watch settings>notifications and make sure all the WhatsApp ones are on.

Im having the same problem with my galaxy watch 4.  Notifications from whatsapp are neither turning on the watch screen or making any sound.  I only know they are there because of the orange dot.  Normal text message notifications work fine.  They wake the watch screen and make a sound.  It's annoying the hell out of me.  Particularly as a lot of my contacts like to use whatsapp rather than standard texts.  Did you find a solution at all?

If you don't receive whatsapp notifications, but only the orange dot appears, check that you have activated the ringtone in whatsapp messages on your smartphone, in the notifications settings tone on the app. If it is set to disable, you will not receive notifications on the clock. I had the same problem and I solved it like this.
