I know I cannot respond to texts but I should be able to see them.  I have tried everything I can find on the internet so far.  The phone and calendar notifications as well as SM notifications work.  Just no texts.  As it is an iphone it is imessages and not a separate app

Hi Krista,

Is this something that just recently stopped working or have you never received text message notifications on your watch?

I'll confess that I don't have any personal experience with using a Wear OS device while connected to an iPhone, but I'll be happy to do some digging to see what I can find out.

 Why can’t I receive calls from an iPhone 8 to the  Watch when I was told before I bought it that I could

Same here.  Using Misfit Vapor and there are no options under the Notofications in the app.

Same issue with Movado Connect 2 watch. All notifications work except iMessage. Just replaced phone from an iPhone 6 to an iPhone 7. When I replaced the phone I had to download the new WearOS app when on the old phone it was the android wear app. Old phone/app it used to work just fine. Reset watch and downloaded app a second time and still no luck

You only need to have the following set

1. Message Notifications 'ON'
2. Alerts: Notification Center 'ON'
3. Show Previews: 'When Unlocked'

This allows the message notifications to come through on the watch and still keeps the messages private on the phone. 

Works on iOS 13
