If you are running 4.1 (I think) and up you can just go into the app info for the Sony smart watch app (not smart connect) and uncheck the "show notifications" box. I have been using my watch like this for a couple months and it works fine.


EDIT
Sorry I didn't see you already knew that. My bad. To answer your actual question no I have had no issues using the watch (SW1) with the notification disabled.
