Galaxy watch 4 - Suggestion - Option to allow notifications while we aren't wearing the watch

Can we get an option to allow notifications while we aren't wearing the watch i.e docked on a table or charging.

The feature was there on older models like the active 2 but it has been removed due to wear os.
 
It's a really useful feature as I don't have to unlock my phone for every little notification as I can quickly see if it's an important notification or not.
 
Thanks

This would also help all of us with tattoos, where the watch doesn't think we're wearing it. It's a simple notification setting that was present in every single Samsung watch prior to this P.O.S.

Hi @Pr337.,

 

The developers have got back to us, and advised that they are not currently looking to implement this beyond the current notifications of Calls, Alarm and Timer. But if more users say that they would like this feature and can suggest some good other use-case scenarios for it too, then it's possible that the developers would reconsider it. 👍

Some good "other use case scenarios"?! Are you being serious? How about just having our expensive a_ss smart watch serve it's basic reason for existence? You know, actually give us notifications!! It doesn't get more good case scenarios than that. Your/developers reply is a complete cop out. The allow notifications while you're not wearing the watch has been a setting in place on every Samsung watch I've owned since 2013. Why in God's name would I or anyone else ever dream they would do away with that on the new watch 4? So now myself (and I'm quite certain others) have pointless brand new watches (I personally have both versions of the watch 4) that don't notify us of ANY notifications and we're supposed to give the developers other "good real world scenarios" for them to consider adding that feature? What a d_amn joke. How about you give us the basic features we paid for, is that enough of a "good case scenario" for you?!!
