No text messages on Galaxy Watch!!!

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Just bought the new Galaxy watch.  I have a One Plus 5 phone.  I do not see any text app.  I have looked everywhere.   Is this a compatability issue?  Do I have to have a Samsung phone in order to get the messaging app to work on the phone?  This is the dumbest smartwatch if so.

It doesn't look like the One Plus 5 is fully compatible with the Galaxy Watch. More information can be found on the compatibility list here: https://www.samsung.com/global/galaxy/galaxy-watch/device-compatibility/

Not at all, it's entirely possible it will be made compatible. It's just not at this current time. I am unable to speculate on if our team will indeed do so though. I truly apologize for the inconveniences this causes.

Plan to return the watch if it can't do something this simple.  Needs update for something that should be basic smart watch function
