Vector Watch app update fixes notification issues on Windows 10 Mobile

It looks like Vector Watch owners can breathe a sigh of relief, as a recent app update appears to have fixed an issue that has been preventing phone notifications from syncing since the launch of the Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update.

Notification issues have actually been plaguing Vector Watch owners since December 2016, but many users reported they outright stopped working following the release of the Creators Update. Now, a number of tipsters and users on the Vector Watch forums report that the most recent update to the app, which began rolling out over the past day or so, has enabled notifications once again.

That said, some users have still reported issues following the update. After initially working for a time, one forum user reports connection issues resumed after rebooting. The solution to any remaining syncing issues, it seems, requires un-pairing the Vector Watch from your phone and resetting the app from its settings menu.

It sounds like performance is still a bit hit or miss, but notifications are in a much better spot than before the update. Further updates are likely required to smooth things out even more. However, Vector Watch was acquired by Fitbit earlier in 2017, so it's reasonable to speculate that support may be limited going forward.

Thanks for the tips, everyone!
