Notifications are missing. Galaxy Gear with Nexus 5
Ok, So I have have a Galaxy Gear and Nexus 5, I can answer phone calls, change my clock, etc. I have enabled Gmail, Facebook notifications on in both ATN Notifications and Gear Manager 1.6.132701 but nothing is coming through. Any suggestions.
I'm in the same boat. Followed the directions 100% and all I can do is call.

I've spent hours and hours trying to get things right on the n5 and gear. No such luck. Was able to connect and receive calls and transfer images sometimes. Notifications never worked unless using a third party app like tablet notifier. With tablet notifier using null ROM, I didn't need to use any gear manager to get that to work. The answering calls and transferring photos won't work. Just notifications do.
For those that are using other device and not Samsung Devices....
OK I was able to get this working and I will try my best to explain it for everyone so you can understand:
Uninstall any versions of ATNManger you already have installed
Install ATN Manager 1.2.2 on your "Phone" (In my case, Nexus 5), apk HERE
Install the "Watch.apk" inside ATN Manager 18.104.22.168_pre.apk on your "Galaxy Gear", apk HERE
Go to settings on your "Phone" and find security, inside there find "Notification Access" make sure ATN Manager is checked
Open ATN Manager on you "Phone" and check all apps that you want to get notifications from (example: Gmail, Hangouts, Google+, Facebook)
You should now get notifications on all of your apps that you checked, my wife even gets them for all her games.
Too bad it only lets you know you got a message and then you have to go to phone to see it, but you still get the notification if say your phone is on silent. Would be great if we could make this work from Nexus 5 through GearManager as it is better but no luck there for me.
Also while I am at it, here is how to get the WatchStyler app working so you can change your watch faces:
Open GearManager on your "Phone"
Connect to your Galaxy Gear
Click on Clocks to see the list of clocks
With Clocks open hit your home button to minimize Gear Manager
