    I've recently received an apple watch and have been using it for 2 days now. I was having some issues with iMessage on my watch where I could receive messages on the watch but didn't get the option to reply. I thought that this may be due to 2 factor authentication being turned on with my Apple ID. I turned it off and now everything is working fine. Is anyone else having this issue? Or does the apple watch not support 2 factor authentication with iMessage?

    With Messages on Apple Watch, you will get an alert when you receive a new iMessage or text message. To read it, simply raise your wrist. You can also view and respond to text messages directly from the Messages app.
    1.Press the Digital Crown to go to the Home screen on Apple Watch
    2.Open the Messages App.
    3.Select the message you wish to read.
    4.Turn the Digital Crown to scroll to the bottom of the message.
    5.Tap "Reply."
    6.Use the Default Replies, Emoji, or Dictate Text to send the message.

    Why have my iMessage notifications stopped going onto my Apple Watch?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1431276998.860906.jpg

    Heck, you don't even have to use the digital crown in this regard. Simply swipe up or long press the screen to reveal the "reply" option.
