Moto 360 2nd gen not receiving Text Messages

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.

Checked - mine are all correct and my permissions allow.  Grr!

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.
