Galaxy issues with iOS update

Highlighted
First Poster

I recently had my iPhone XS auto update to the latest iOS and I ran the update for the galaxy watch app. Since this happened I can no longer get text messages on my watch. With iOS you can't respond to texts, maybe that will improve in the future. 
another issue since the update is that the watch keeps losing the Bluetooth connection. 

I have done resets on the watch 5 times and deleted the app an re installed at least 3 times. I have removed the Bluetooth connection and linked again countless times, turned off notifications on the phone, app and Bluetooth settings in the phone and turned them back on. I have power cycled countless times and still nothing works. 
many one else having this problem?

 

on another note I have to turn off the wifi setting on my SM R800 to install apps and watxh faces from my galaxy watch app to my watch. This has nothing to do with the update. It's been that way since day 1. 

another strange thing since day 1 is I cannot get direct access on the watch to the galaxy store. The watch is connected by wifi but the only way to access the store is through the phone app. 

I chose tbe galaxy watch because it has hat better styling than an Apple Watch but I can't figure out if these problems are expected between the two platforms or if it is a software problem tied to the current updates of both devices.

Probably after the iOS update, the Watch's To get notifications on your Watch's notification configurations were reset. If it helps you can check out this article to solve it:

I double checked all that again just now and all my settings are configured to get my notifications. I do get t of them just not texts specifically.
