Remember that permissions for notifications must be activated before configuring the degree or volume of the same.

Other than that, you can also opt for one special notification, available for those applications that you consider most relevant.

Does battery optimization affect the vibration of the Smartwatch?

 Optimization is a mechanism that has been applied since the Android 6.0 version, which implies a more generalized fact at the point where we are, this constant update is used by the mobile in an activity to extend the time of " standby ”Battery when the phone is not in use


However, this mechanism limit the operation of the applications that are in background, just to save RAM this way. Likewise, we conclude that another big part of the problem lies in battery optimization.

To disable optimization go to " settings "And search" uses ”Followed by the option that delimits your smartwatch device. Next, go to the app options, where in the menu press " battery optimization ”And easily select your smartwatch so that the system does not take it into account when tuning.
