Text messages and iphones
Why am I no longer getting my text messages on my Suunto 7? I have an iPhone 11 and I used to get text notifications. I read somewhere once that that feature went away (for Apple users) after an update but I can’t find any other information then that. And of course I can’t find that article again!
I’ve emailed Suunto to ask, and I’ll I get is a generic response saying they’ll get back to me, but no one ever gets back to me.
I previously had a Spartan and I loved it, but my 7 I don’t love. I don’t hate it either, but I don’t love it, and for the price I think I should like it a little better.
@nikki_k have you checked the ‘notifications’ setting within the WearOS app on your iPhone? Within that you can select whether you want notifications for each individual app, so perhaps it’s no longer selected? I personally don’t have a problem, so you could also try a soft reset of the watch; removing and reinstalling the app; or worst case a hard reset of the watch.
Love the S7 and embrace it with all your heart. And I hope this year the S7 will step up with the next updates… let’s see.
About the notifications. I get the message notifications. I have almost all my notifications off. I will turn it on and check it today.
Have you checked in the app you have messages on in notifications?
@nikki_k It is working just fine for me so no issues with iPhone12pro. Check your notifications settings on the iPhone and WearOS settings.
@ldxmsg thank you! I just checked it and it was turned off. I have no idea when or why that happened. From what I can find online I’m not the only one with this issue, must have turned off after an update. I’m just glad it was an easy fix.
@nikki_k Good stuff. Phones do tend to have a mind of their own at times…
