Check on watch going to bright mode to get updated counts for the above.

This was high on my list of priorities but it can only get updated when going to bright mode? Why?

Well bright mode is one obvious time to update these values. The actual implementation itself hasn't yet been decided.

This would be a fantastic addition for me. I'd love this ability.

Not sure if you could get the information from light flow, but if that were possible it would be more useful.

Notifications can be queried, if we could define regular expressions for app and notification contents then it could handle "other" non-standard types of notifications.

I created this "idea" before I saw this one: http://watchmaker-features.idea.informer.com/proj/?ia=100567

It would be great to have access to both unread and read counts. We could then build guages, lights, etc instead of the tiny default widget that is really hard to see. IMHO a smart watches primary function is notifications and the built in handling is pretty poor in Android Wear
