When I receive a notification of SMS/email, a picture of the contact appears behind the card, which is a nice feature. However, these pictures are always horribly blurred, whereas they appear clear on my phone. Is this a common behaviour or is it just my set-up? I do recall previously having issues on android with contact pics being blurred due to the way they synced between android phone/facebook/google so I am wondering if this is related.

Thanks

This is because it uses the picture that is in the notification. This picture is low resolution on the phone, hence it is low resolution on the watch.

Thanks - but the pictures are not low resolution on the phone as they look fine when there is a call etc and that is on a 1080p display. I think it is maybe because the watch is pulling the picture from the gmail contact (i.e. on google's cloud as opposed to my phone) which is why it is happening?

It's pulling the photo from the notification. Not the contact information.

Ah OK - so there is no fix then - that's just the way it is?
