Just wondering if anybody can help me with this as all the settings are there but when the alarm goes off on my Xperia Xz premium my Smartband SWR10 would t vibrate.

I'm afraid that I cannot help but I thought I would add fuel to your fire, I have an Xperia XZ and I performed the Android 8 upgrade last night and promptly wound up late for work due my vibrating alarms no longer triggering the smartband. Please fix this Sony?

I had the Smartband software and the smart Connect software installed on the phone but it didn't seem to help, I have tried reinstalling the apps and changing the settings from audible to vibration but nothing seems to allow the alarm to trigger on the band. Both apps asked on reinstall if I wanted them to interact with the phone, but it hasn't fixed the problem.
I think that it might be something to do with the new Background running app that is on Android 8 for me, as the band only shows that it can interact with the Telephone and make changes to the SD Card, there is no mention of the device being able to set alarms or interact with the phone in any other way. Furthermore, there doesn't seem to be a way to stop the app from running in the background allow it full interaction with the phone.
Any help would be great on this thanks.

Also not recieving alarm notifications on Xperia XZ. Only since Oreo upgrade. Downloaded a new alarm App and gave the smartband notification access from the new app. Still didn't help.

My theory is the updated alarm/clock app in Oreo doesn't support the SmartBand and Sony aren't going to fix that because the products were discontinued. The one feature I found invaluable now broken.

Got a XZ Premium with Oreo. Android 8.0.0 version. And SWR10 smartwatch.
Vibration worked after I enabled it again. Try to go into:
1: Smart connect
2: select accessories. (Activities is open)
3: Select smartband
4: select Smartband again (settings)
5: Alarm show up there make it active as vibrate.
I'm using Sony alarm app so I got same phone, wristband, android version and alarm app
