Default E-mail

In using outlook. Com for e-mail but I would like more than just a notification in the gear. What do you guys use? I am not saying much luck with the stock e-mail app.

Are you on a Corporate Exchange Server for your Outlook? The email on watch for Gear 1 was broken, again, from the last update. I recommend Cloudmagic, as it brings the email text to my Gear again. Give it a shot.

I just switched from K9 (only thing useful on my last watch) to the stock email app on my Galaxy S3 (running 4.2). I can now read the entire contents of emails once I open the notification and can refer to them in the email app. BEST FUNCTIONALITY *EVER*!! It's really useful to just pull up the email without pulling out the phone (or even having the phone on me). My boss is tech resistant, but even he thought it was really cool.

There are a few things that could be amiss. Are you using one of the supported phones? Do you have the notifications for email turned on in the Gear Manager?

I've heard that "starting over" will sometimes work. Unpair the watch from the phone. Factory reset the watch. Uninstall Gear Manager. Reinstall Gear Manager. Pair the watch to the phone. Re-enable notifications. ymmv.

Good luck.
