I was having the same issues. Go to your phone settings. Go to all apps and turn on whatsapp.

This works for me.

On your phone go to the WEAR app and go then MESSAGES.

Set the switches as shown on my picture (its in Dutch)

After that your messages Whatsapp, Line etc goes instantly to your watch and phone.

If it's any help I use a 3rd party app called Chat Hub. This not only shows you notifications from WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, but lets you reply to these messages using your watch - provided that your watch and phone are within bluetooth range of each other (even if you have the LTE version). Just go to the Galaxy Store on your phone, search for Chat Hub, press Watch so it knows you're searching for watch apps. It isn't free but it was worth it for me for the small price (I took the risk), and although it only has 2 stars out of 5 under the reviews I can confirm it does work for me 100% of the time.

I solved it.   just go to phone setting (not wearable settings) -  click Notification- scroll down - you can see whatsapp icon click on it allow all notification enable button thats it.

then you can get notification in your samsung watch also.

See Page 13 of this thread (10/7/2019), doesn't seem like anything has changed unfortunately.

If you have WhatsApp Web enabled on your PC (web.whatsapp.com), you won't receive notifications on your watch. Close any WhatsApp Web browser tabs that are open and you'll begin receiving notifications on your watch.

 

I've seen many posts on the web from people saying they're not receiving Whatsapp notifications on their watch. All answers refer to making sure that Whatsapp is set up to send notifications and that the watch is also set up correctly.

 

I had been receiving notifications and then they stopped. I realized that if the Whatsapp Web app is open on my PC (meaning I can use WhatsApp from my PC in addition to from my phone), then Whatsapp notifications are not received on my watch. I assume it's because Whatsapp is sending a notification and the PC app is overriding notifications to the watch. As soon as I close the WhatsApp Web app on my PC, I started receiving notifications on my watch.

FYI, here's an update.  Whatsapp is now sending notifications to my Galaxy Watch even when Whatsapp Web is open in my browser.  Samsung must have released an update that fixed the notification issue.
