Default No notifications from Note III to Gear?

A few days ago my Gear was acting weird. I wanted to add a new notification through the Gear Manager application through my phone, but it started installing some apps when I opened the app. I let it install the apps, but for some reason it tells me to connect my Gear to my phone using NFC (like it hasn't been configured).

When I connect it through Bluetooth, it will connect without issues. However it says "Connected to phone audio" and the notification icon is gone.
I can receive calls but notifications doesn't appear.

Any idea why?

Thanks
