    I'm no longer getting iMessages to my watch. I just get the message "iCloud password failed". I've restarted, reset, unpaired, restored the watch. I've also done the same for my phone. I even changed my Apple ID password, nothing seems to work. For some strange reason I am still able to send SMS message ms from the watch..
    This is very frustrating!

    I've included a screenshot of the message below as well.

    Anyone else experiencing this issue?

    Do you have two step verification turned on for your iCloud account? If so, you'll need to create an application specific password for iMessages to work. (You can do this at the AppleID settings page.)

    Hope this helps.
