Is there a way to wake up the watch screen when a watchconnectivity message is received (application context updated)?
If you're asking if you can turn on the screen programmatically, the answer is "No." If you're asking if you can do background processing, the answer is "Yes": override HKExtensionDelegate.HandleBackgroundTasks.
This is a good WWDC 16 video on background processing on Watch OS: https://developer.apple.com/videos/play/wwdc2016/218/
I guess the solution is to play a sound to get the user attention to look at the watch, however, when I try to initiate the
from DidReceiveLocalNotification it doesn't play.
