Default [Q] Notifications Suddenly Not Working

Hi

I've had my Gear for a few days now and love it. But my notifications suddenly stopped working. Now the screens comes to life and silently just showing "New Notificaitons Received". I no longer get the icons for what the notificaiton belong to with a linc of directly opening the message.

Any ideas? My Gear is stock with latest firmware

Gear Manager - make sure "Notifications" tab is on (green). Tap to open and check all boxes of what you want are ticked on next page.

Also make sure that if you have any apps with notifications that the "More Notifications" tab is (green) open. tap to open and check any other apps you require notifications for. Then reboot both Gear and phone. If this doesn't work then you'll possibly need to restore Gear back to default settings and re NFC to your phone.

Thx for the input, but it turns out that my camera is deffective and everytime I invoke the camera, the camera-app crashes and exists. After that the notifications go away. Stranget but I then have to reboot the gear or resync it with the Gear Manager.

ps: Samsung support sucks, I bought the Gear in India on my last trip and cannot get warranty for it in Norway. wtf? Is Samsung a garage sale company or a huge world wide giant?

Have you tried upgrading firmware and resetting the gear itself?

One of their policies is that warranty is only valid in country it is purchased
