Hey! So, I got a Samsung Galaxy Watch, Midnight Black, 42mm, SM-185U. I can receive messages and calls, but it won't let me send either. Also, the battery barely lasts one day on a full charge. I don't use it heavily. I don't know what's wrong. Help would be appreciated! Thanks! 

 

Extra info: I use an iPhone 6s with Lycamobile being my carrier

I use an iPhone 6s, and Lycamobile as my data plan. I don't know whether you want me to download a texting app on the watch, or if you wanted me to do something on the iPhone.

When you say other texting apps, do you mean on the watch or my iPhone 6s? Also, yes, I do have always on. I didn't realize it used that much battery. Thanks, @pabloman!

Is your watch capable of using a SIM card? Also, could you do me a favor and double-check your model code for me?

In that case, I would have to agree with @pabloman your best bet would be to use a third party texting application. With your phone being an iPhone iMessages might not work completely.

So would you like me to download something like Whatsapp on my phone? Or download something on the watch. Also, when I try to connect to a mobile network, it says my carrier isn't compatible. I use Lycamobile.
