Default [Q] Full text message notifications on Gear w/out Stock App

I'm trying to use 8SMS instead of the stock text messaging app on my Note 3 but I noticed with 8SMS the notifications on my Gear don't show the message text. Are there any 3rd party Text messaging apps that allow full text notifications?

I happen to use Textra with my Gear 2. Of course I can't reply to the notifications, however I can see a snippet of the text on the Gear 2, and if I tap on the notification, I can actually read the full text off of my watch. You could give Textra a try - it's free.
