GET FAMILIAR WITH NOW NOTIFICATION CARDS
Now Cards are notification cards similar to Google Now that pop up from the bottom of your screen. These include text messages, emails and missed phone calls, as well as traffic and weather updates. As of update 4.4.W.2 you can opt to have these notification cards remain on your screen until swiped away (just swipe down to dismiss them), or to only pop up for a few seconds before disappearing. Toggle between the two settings by going to the Settings menu and selecting the “Card Preview” option. Opting for “Watch face sets card preview” will allow notifications to remain on the display, while selecting “None” will not. Whichever, you select you can see your unread notifications by swiping up from the bottom of the display.
To scroll through your notifications, keep swiping up. If you want to see more info on a card, just tap it. Some cards will display extra options when you tap them, for example, a Gmail card has options that let you archive, reply, or open Gmail on your phone. When you’re done with a card dismiss it by swiping from left to right. Dismissing a card on your watch will dismiss the same notification on your phone and vice versa.
If you accidently dismiss a card and want to retrieve it you can do so by immediately swiping down from the top of your watch’s display and pressing the ‘Dismissing’ button with the reverse arrow on it. You have about five seconds (there’s a little timer surrounding the button that shows you how much time you have left) before the notification is gone forever.
