I managed to get it to work for me by doing the following on Galaxy Wearable app on the phone:
Open up Notifications:
- Turned OFF Show only while wearing watch
- Turned ON show while using phone
- * Click on Manage Notifications and select MESSAGES as an option
(* this was turned off even though many others such as facebook, hangouts, and other apps I DONT use were turned on). I suspect this was the main culprit, but I'm still putting down all the steps that I did incase it's a combination issue.
Open up Accounts and backups
- Turned ON remote connection
In phone setting, went to Apps, selected Galaxy Wearable and made sure all permissions are set / connected.
I really hope this helps someone else out there.
