Can’t find your smartwatch or activity bracelet to vibrate with phone notifications? No problem: we help you decide on a step to find out all notifications reach your wrist, including WhatsApp messages and calls.
One of the great benefits of wearing a smart ‘wearable’ or ‘wearable’ device is that it allows you to see what is happening on the phone without taking it out of your pocket. Read the last WhatsApp message, find out if email is important or know who is calling without picking up your phone: displaying notifications while watching or tracking work saves a lot of time and distractions. However, it is not always easy to set up alerts because the system puts in place more than one trip. Let’s see what they are and how we can avoid them.
Access to smartwatch app notifications
It doesn’t matter what type of device it is, whether it’s a Samsung smartwatch, a Huawei watch or a Xiaomi Mi Band: all apps that handle these devices I need access to mobile notifications. This is important to show them on the wrist: if the app does not have permission to read notifications, they will never reach your watch or band.
The ‘wearable’ control app usually requests access to notifications when you configure the device for the first time. In the event that you did not give consent to the program, or if you do not know if you have approved it, do the following:
- Access your Android settings.
- Go to ‘Applications’.
- Click on the three menu items and select ‘Special Access’.
- See the ‘Access notifications’ menu: when you press, you’ll see all applications that have requested access to phone notifications.
- Use your smart watch or activity bracelet in the ‘Access notifications’ list. In case you do not have permission, give them. And if you already have it, your problem with notifications would not be this.
This is the first step in solving your wrist warnings. If you continue to be distracted, keep reading.
Ignore battery configuration
Android has a battery usage program Minimize background apps to save mAh. Since clock control applications must always be running, it is very common for notifications to stop accessing the wrist because the system has loaded the operating system. So this is the second step needed to solve the clock problem.
Ignore battery usage in the use of your ‘wearable’ do the following:
- Go to your Android settings, install ‘Applications’ and check your device app (Gear S Watch, Mi band, Fitbit Versa …).
- Access the app options and get the menu ”Adjust battery usage
- Select an application from the list so that the system does not use it properly.
Adding smartwatch or bracelet use to the list of unprepared apps the system will not turn it off when it is running in the background and needs to free up memory. While it may be possible, however, your watch app will shut down: it will all depend on your device’s RAM memory size and pre-installed programs.
Did you prevent the app from using your app’s ‘wearable’ battery and not not being able to reach your wrist? Let’s move on.
Activate your favorite notifications
You may have made notifications for your smartwatch or band app and that it is no longer used for battery usage, but not for this reason notifications will reach you: it is more common in your favorite apps not currently authorized. You can check it from your ‘wearable’ application:

- Enter device settings and view file for notification management: a list of apps must appear with a tag to work each one separately.
- Make sure the apps you’re interested in work on sending notifications. For example, it is common for you to not have active WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter and any other social network or messaging system where you need ongoing alerts: this is one of the most common reasons why important notifications can be received.
In the last three steps, you should get any notification on your wrist as the phone finds you.
