My Tomtom runner 3 doesn’t give me alerts for WhatsApp. Do you have a solution?

    Your watch doesn't give you Whatsapp alerts because it's not a feature provided by TomTom. The watch can only show you incoming calls and SMS messages, nothing else. So unfortunately, there's no solution.

    EVA_27 is correct, all you will get for notifications are those from the native phone and text apps, not third-party apps (like Facebook messenger or What's App). And all you get is single notification alert on a single screen, you cannot scroll through to recall missed ones or interact with it in any way. It essentially just telling you to look at your phone. There is nothing you can do to fix it, it is just the way it is. I think they were committed to add phone notifications since they had advertised it, so they implemented the most basic system. Since they have now left the wearables market and are no longer producing devices I would not expect any changes on this front unfortunately.

    I imagine this is not what you were hoping to hear but let me know if this answered your question. If it did, please mark it as a solution so other can look for it if they have the same question.
