Nothing at all? They are correctly paired up?

The issue is because they updated the gear manager for the phone but not the gear software itself yet for the United States. There are fixes for this in this forum do a search for Official update for the Gear November 15, or look for a header with that in it. Basically the fix is putting the UK or British version of the gear software onto the gear and the notification start working again. You do not even have to route the gear to accomplish this. Sorry I'm too new to know how to post links to those articles but searching you'll find plenty.
