Reminder notifications

I’ve been trying to use Reminders to replace a few of the persistent reminders I had in Due. I love that reminders keeps the notifications at the top of the notification center until dismissed even after I’ve cleared all notifications. It’s perfect… except for notifications on my watch. I never seem to get these notifications on my watch. Occasionally I’ll get the alert on my watch at the original trigger time but then they disappear. They also don’t stay in my notification center on the watch only on the phone. Any way I can have my reminder notifications on both my watch and iPhone?
