Question [Q] Note 3 and Sony SBH52 headset help

I have a Note 3 and the Sony SBH52 headset. When I get Gmail emails, Facebook and Twitter updates they appear on the headset and will be read out.
The problem I have is with the default email app on the Note 3 which I use for my work exchange emails - these do not get notified or appear on the headset (notifications appear on the Note 3).
having looked at the Sony smart connect app on Google play it states that it only works for the default email app on Xperia handsets.

My question is does anyone know if there is a work around that will enable me to receive notifications from the default email app on the Note 3 onto the headset? - a long shot I know.
Thanks

I have tried a lot of variations with no success. I thought Watchit would enable this but it doesn't seem to. Please let me know if you have any luck.

NFC works perfectly for pairing. The only thing that does not work is notifications from the default email app on the Note 3. The Sony software for the SBH states that the device is not supported for email (using the default Note 3 email app)

Hi all. Is there any way to wake note 3 by using the sbh52? so I can use voice commands?

Thanks in advance
