Message+ not syncing notification with smartwatch

Member

Just received a Ticwatch E running Wear OS 2.2

Except for incoming text messages, all desired notifications are actively forwarded to the device from my VZW phone, Samsung Galaxy s9.

I have checked Wear OS, phone, and watch settings and everything is set up to permit notifications to the watch from Message+.
Researching the problem, i have heard rumors that Message+ does not play nicely with Wear OS.
I thought I would have a workaround by also allowing notifications from the phone's stock messaging app, but still nothing.

Thoughts?

Well, I now have Verizon Messages and Hangouts working as they did before, with notifications.

I have written out the steps below. I don't 100% know if they are in order or they even need to be in an order. But, it took a lot of playing around, and I got them both to show me text notifications as they did before.
