    Uninstall Messages+ by Verizon from your watch.
    Working for me so far.

    I just set my default sms to hangouts. I'm getting my texts and so far no annoying call setup msg. However, my phone is now audible when receiving texts, even though I have it set to silence when watch is connected.

    This is so frustrating. I had moto360 1st gen and it worked great. The "upgrade" to Sport has been nothing but headaches!

    Motorola/Lenovo + Samsung/Verizon = FAIL: mad:

    I uninstalled the messages+ update through app manager in settings, but it didn't work.

    Open your Message+ app on your watch and approve all the permissions it asks you. This might be what it wants to setup. I had the same problem, did this, and am hoping it stops notifying me and that the texts work on my watch again.

    On the watch, go to Settings > Permissions > My Verizon and tap on Phone to enable it. I doubt this will fix the issue but who knows. I did go into the Message+ settings and I saw some permissions were not enabled. I enabled them to see if it will help.

    BTW: I am still getting the message. (At least 3 times since my post yesterday.)

    To uninstall Message+ from the watch, use the Android Wear app on your phone.
    Once you're in the app, press the gear at the top to go into Settings. Select "Block app notifications". There is a plus sign at the bottom you can tap to open up a list of all applications. Find Message+ and select it to be blocked.

    Now that you've blocked it, you can uninstall it entirely by going back to the Settings page, and tap on Moto 360 (connected)
    On this page, hit "Resync apps" to clear out all blocked apps.

    This should prevent the message from popping up again!

    p.s. after i did this on mine, some of the apps that i had running (I use Facer) stopped working. They'll all needed to be started up again after the Resync, just open them like you normally would.

    I've managed to fix the problem on my watch, so far so good. Instead of uninstalling the Message+ app on the watch. I went into my Andriod Wear app opened up Settings and went to Block App Notifications, your Message+ should be there. Once you have unblocked Message+ you will start getting the notification again, but only with phone numbers. You can fix this as well, once it has been unblocked from your Android Wear go back to your watch, go to your apps, find the Message+ and click on it. The app will then prompt you to allow it access to your messages, phone calls, and contact list. Once you agree to this it will now send you notifications again, with the names showing.

    I don't know if this works for any others, but it seemed to fix my problem.

    I tried this as well...saw the permission pop-ups and went into permission settings and enabled them all at this point.

    Still get the message and NO notifications for texts anymore on my Huawei.

    Looks like they completely broke it.

    Tried this. It was not in my blocked list.

    I've also tried uninstalling Message+ from my phone(Pixel XL), it also correctly removes Message+ from my watch.

    Reinstalled Message+, Got the notification on my watch that it's installed "tap to start", I did, granted the two permissions asked(Contacts and Phone...oddly no SMS). I manually enabled SMS permission on the watch for Message+.

    Working again. Also, I have NOT received the text message from Verizon telling me my watch has access to your text and calls as I did prevously.

    After a while, I did get the text and message on the watch again. And swiping did nothing. I've only gotten it once though. AND, my text notifications are now working just fine. So, overall I consider that a success considering what I had before.

    And now it's broken again. Worked well for about half a day. Then I got the swipe left message a second time, and done.

    Just had a text come in, but didn't show up on my watch.

    I have a new icon in the list of options that says "activate watch", but when I click it it says "Watch not added" sorry we can't add your watch. you can still stay connected using bluetooth and wifi"

    I think I have figured it out... I have been a wreck about this. My texts stopped working a few days after getting the good ole setup message... I've gone thru every setting of my fairly new Moto z force and my Moto 360 watch. Every setting of every app on both watch and phone. I was in my message+ app on my phone and at the top left is 3 horizontal lines (drop down menu). From the menu I scrolled down to settings, scrolled down to click "manage devices" from that menu it listed my Moto 360. It said I could disconnect and reconnect at any time. So I disconnected it. From there I spent nearly an hour trying to figure out how to "reconnect" my watch to my phone. None the less I opened the message+ app on my Moto 360 watch and there was not a single message, completely empty, so I clicked the new message and instantly I received a text on my phone stating it connected and ALL of my texts I hadn't received over the last few days were back and now I'm receiving texts again.
    Keep in mind I received the same notification on my watch you all have received that when you swiped to open did nothing, and I also received the same Verizon text I just received, a few days ago. That's when I stopped receiving texts.

    So fingers crossed this is the fix.... At least it's working for now.
