Default More trouble with text messages

Been lurking this forum for years... but...

I bought a G-Watch on Friday night, and have been using it ever since... my problem is that when I send a text message via the watch, there is no record of it in the messaging app - whether stock or 3rd party.

However, in the stock app, an empty text message will pop up, only to say "no content." Whats even more strange, is that the message is STILL SENT!! Even though there is no record of it on the phone. Receiving messages works fine, its just sending that is the problem. I've looked at every setting I can think of... no luck.

Help!

That's definitely a bug. Seems to be more an issue on the phone than on the watch. No idea how you would fix this though. Don't wanna say reset, but it's the only thing I can think of. Try to reset just the watch first, then you won't have to setup everything on your phone again.
Please use the search function or Google before creating an unnecessary thread / post about somthing which has already been answered. Also please read the rules and post in the right forum. Thanks!

My devices:
 
LG Nexus 5 - Black 16GB - Stock ROM with Root & Xposed - ElementalX Kernel
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 - White 64GB - Stock with Root
LG G Watch - Black 4GB - Gohma ROM (modified) & Root

That's kinda what I figured. I factory reset both of them last night with no luck. I guess I just have to wait for an update - kinda sucks wondering if the fix will be included in the next update, or if LG even knows its an issue. I've looked for hours and haven't seen anything related.

Thanks.

Have you considered moving out to hangouts to use alongside the watch? Ever since I got mines I just made hangouts the primary app and I haven't had any issues.

No matter what, I can never stay away from android for long.
Addicted to flashing! It all started on my Nexus S........., Then Galaxy Nexus, upgraded to the Galaxy S3, Couldn't resist to take notes on a Note 2 & Note 10.1, Upgraded to the GS4, and now i'm rocking my LG G3 paired with the LTE LG G PAD 7.0

I did, with the same result.

However, I just stopped by Verizon a couple minutes ago, and he asked me if I had tried Verizon's app called "Verizon messaging" and I of course said no. He put it on the phone and it actually worked. But with that app, the watch doesn't vibrate during the notification of an incoming text.

So I guess I have to pick which is more important... a record of sent texts, or a legit notification that I received a text message. I'm leaning towards option 2.

That's interesting. I'm not sure why it's not working on either app. And I'd definitely go for option 2 as well. another dumb question have you reset your phone and the watch?

Yep. I've reset both, with the same result. I don't have much confidence that this will ever be fixed - but we'll see.
