I have the Samsung Active 2 watch. I want to not have Samsung messages as my default. I use Google messages as my default on my phone. Very annoying that when I go into the messages app on my watch it keeps trying to ask me if I want Samsung messages as my default. There needs to be a way to not have this pop up without changing my face of my watch to work around it. Why can't Samsung just do an update to remove the default app setting or let the user decide on which app to sync it to.
I am also experiencing this with the Textra messaging app. Same annoying watch popup when a notification hits. Hopefully, Samsung will fix this sooner rather than later.
i'm having the same trouble as you guys. it's terribly frustrating. i'm going to return my watch cause one of the main reasons i got it was to text. i hope that samsung pays attention to this and maybe fixes it
