    Once you read/clear the notification at the watch, then it's cleared/deleted (the notification), isn't it? Then, you can still later open up the messaging app on the phone to read what ones came in when, from where, etc...

    I moved this from the Galaxy Watch forum (for the 1st gen watch) to the Watch5 forum.

    I'm giving this some thought. I don't know if op is talking about text messages or emails.

    I am sure when you clear the notification for emails there nothing else on the watch.

    Text messages on the other hand I think those stay on the watch if you use Samsung messages or Google messages app. I don't know for sure though. When I open those apps on the watch the messages are there. This is on Bluetooth connection or LTE. I wonder if a set amount of messages get stored in the watch, as not all my messages are on the watch. I have messages on my watch that I don't ever reply to do it's not just the ones I truly to thru the watch.

    You or anyone know?? Maybe it's a sync thing, but it didn't sync on LTE. I just tested and I forgot you can't delete the text message from watch so the op must be talking emails, but anyone know if the text messages are stored on the watch?

    Other than for specific watch apps like Messages/Messaging, Health, StopWatch, Timers/Alarms, etc.., I view the smart watch concept as mainly a notification based system. That is, lots of notifications can be received (and cleared or not) at the watch, but that's only meant to be a window into what is actually on the phone.

    I have never tried to respond at the watch to a received email notification, but for me the standard quick response notification options are there, whenever I get a received email notification. For me, normally the received email notification doesn't show enough of the actual email contents for me to ever want to use the watch to respond. I'll do a test and then report back, but with no actual email app per se at the watch, I don't see how I'd be able to get a window view at the watch for past emails received or sent, once a notification is cleared.

    For messages/messaging (because those I think are generally shorter than emails), I think the concept is supposed to be opposite. That is, by opening the messages/messaging app at the watch, one gets a conversation view list of messages sent and received with/for each contact/number that one has been exchanging with. I have not double checked to positively confirm if the list of messages at the watch goes back in time forever, but that conversation view list for me seems to be exactly the same as what I see at the phone for all messages back and forth per contact, and that's how I would expect and want it to be. For me personally, I have no need to clear the list at the watch. For me, I use the clear (or not) notification feature at the watch, to manage what messages (notifications) I have or have not yet read or dealt with.

    I don't think this is possible, not with the Google messages app at least. I'm also genuinely curious why you would want to do this?
