Default [Q] Notifications on Fit while phone is silent

I've just bought the Gear Fit today and it's working really well. I'm using it with a Note 3, but I would really like for my phone to be silent while the Fit does vibrate and show notifications.

At the moment the Fit only vibrates when my phone is also on vibration. If the sound is turned on or when it's silent my Fit doesn't even show notifications automatically.

Is this simply not possible or am I doing something wrong?

I have a Gear Fit with a Note 3 as well. My phone is always set to silent (no noise or vibration on phone) and I can still receive the alert on the gear fit via vibration. I would have expected the notifications once chosen on gear manager to always be pushed to the gear fit.

I have figured out the problem after receiving another notification than Whatsapp. It seemed to be an issue with Whatsapp and had to manually turn on the vibrations in Whatsapp notification settings. It's now working properly.
