I'm thinking of switching from Pebble to Android Wear. I'm curious, do notifications from your phone come through consistently and quickly? On Pebble (at least with Android) about 25% of the time a notification takes 2-5 seconds to show up on the watch, or never shows up at all. I'll feel my phone buzz and sit there staring at my watch, waiting. It gets really annoying! Happened with both my S3 and Nexus 5.

Has anyone experienced similar with Android Wear watches? Or particular models? Thanks!

Awesome. I think I'll be ordering Black Friday or cyber Monday. Now, to decide which one.

After 2 weeks with my LG G Watch R, I'm afraid that after 18 months with my Pebble I've grown accustomed to doing things in a certain way and that's not the right way for Android Wear.

Could anybody enlighten me?

My watch almost never vibrates. Mails, Whatsapp messages... it doesn't matter, most notifications show as cards (which I notice after a too long time) but I don't get vibrations.

My phone is a Sony Xperia Z3 with 4.4.4 (5.0.1 on the watch). When I used my Pebble it was always muted and most apps had notifications off. Now Whatsapp and Gmail have notifications on, since I read somewhere that Android Wear devices would only vibrate if the app was supposed to make some noise. However, I still don't get vibrations.

Thanks in advance

As far as i got with this (still no Facebook notifications here) this has to do with the sound options, very logical (not) on your phone..
If you have notifications set to just vibrate with no sound on your phone there will be no vibration on your wrist, someone needs to visit that google programmer with a clue bat i think :-/
If you want your watch to be the one to get the notifications and no sound on your phone, set up all apps on your phone to use sounds, and set in Android wear app, silence the phone. This will quit your phone from responding with sounds (an i think also vibrations) while your watch should do the heavy lifting.
Why they did it this way, Google only knows, we desperately need a alternative Android wear build with a much better control of vibrations and how each type of notifications should act!
