Notifications appear on your Apple Watch or iPhone, but not both.
If your iPhone is unlocked, you get notifications on your iPhone instead of your Apple Watch.
When your devices disconnect, your notifications go to your iPhone instead of your Apple Watch. To check your connection in Control Center, press the side button (for watchOS 9 or earlier, touch and hold the bottom of the screen, then swipe up). If your devices are disconnected, you might see the red iPhone icon, the red X icon, or the Wi-Fi icon. Try to connect your iPhone and Apple Watch.
When your Apple Watch locks or you turn on Do Not Disturb, your notifications go to your iPhone:
- When your Apple Watch is locked, the lock icon appears on the watch face.
- When Do Not Disturb is on, the Do Not Disturb icon appears on the watch face. To turn this feature off, swipe up on the watch face, then tap the Do Not Disturb button.
For third-party apps, notifications are delivered only if your paired iPhone is also connected to a network.
Work focus mode is not allowing notifications on my Apple Watch.
