No Notification on watch from Samsung Messages (SMS) app

I have been using the Samsung Messages (SMS) app on my Gear S3 with my Note 9 for years.

Suddenly, notifications sent to the watch from the app stopped.

I tried restarting both, cycling the notification button in the Wearable app and combinations of both actions.

No joy.

The Google SMS and Verizon SMS apps each send notifications to the watch.

The same thing happened at the same time on the Gear Sport that is also connected to my Note 9.

I'd rather not reset the watch, but understand that I may have to, but why only one app notification fail?
