Moto 360 2nd gen not receiving Text Messages

2017-02-06, 19:44 PM

There seems to have been an app update somewhere, and now my watch is not receiving text notifications.  I have a Verizon phone that uses Messaging +.  Anybody know how to fix this?  Watch doesn't do me much good if I can't receive texts!

There was an Android Wear app update recently for the phone app, that mentioned a new permission setting.  Try Settings > Apps > Android Wear > Permissions > make sure the SMS slider is On.  I also had to reboot my watch after that update to get everything syncing with my phone again.

Have you tried rebooting both, phone and watch?  Maybe there was an update to the Message + app recently?  I use the stock Messenger app on my Z Force and have not seen any issues with SMS on my watch.

Thank you for this. I've had my watch for about a year and this is the first time I had this issue. Your solution worked.
