1. You can get notifications by enabling it on gear manager -> notifications -> more notifications -> tick any app youd like.

2. Maybe firmware update will fix it. Check in gear managee.

3. Afaik you wont get much use for youtube on the gear without a null rom with bluetooth internett teethering. But you can backup youtube app from phone with astro/es fileexplorer and sideload them from pc. There are tutorials on how to sideload in the forums.

Hope this helps mate
