When I try to open the messages app it says it needs permissions in order to function, but it already has all permissions. I have tried force stopping, reinstalling, clearing data and restarting watch but nothing seems to fix it. 

I can receive text notifications and use the quick reply from the notification section

Good to know! I think the Messages app came preinstalled on my LG Watch Sport but that may not be the case on other watches. In any case, I'm glad that you were able to get around the problem.
