Watch receives old text messages when out of bluetooth range of phone

I have an LTE version of the Galaxy Watch. Whenever I walk out of bluetooth range from my phone, the watch downloads a large number of text messages I ve already read while my watch was connected to my phone. Very irritating as it vibrates continuously while it does this. How can I mange the settings so that text messages received and read while connected to my phone are not downloaded to the watch once the connection is lost?

Are you using the stock messaging app when you are experiencing these symptoms?

Are the notifications coming through the watch originally when the phone is connected to the watch?

Yes. When the watch is connected to the phone through bluetooth, I get notifications on my watch when receiving the text messages. Then when the connections is lost, and the watch is using LTE, I get all the notifications again.

Do you have T-Mobile Digits between your watch and phone?
