Hoping someone could help with this as its very annoying. Started Google maps on my phone to navigate like I always do whilst driving. However every single new notification for distance or turns which appeared on my phone was also sent to my watch.
Now I can understand this is a great feature if you are walking / hiking / cycling as its easier to look at your watch than keep getting your phone out. Not so much when you are driving, as my watch was constantly buzzing for new navigations - the screen would suddenly light up with the new direction (turn left etc.). Very very distracting.
I pulled over to try and fix this, as its very distracting.
Things I have already tried on the watch / wearos app:
In notifications, Google maps was already disabled.
Turned phone to silent - that didn't work (watch still buzzed)
Turned Battery saving mode on - that didn't work, both directions and buzzing continued.
Turned off system notifications - that didn't work either.
The only thing left is probably to disable Bluetooth completely - but this kinda defeats the object of having a smart watch.
Solved! Go to Solution.
