    I have restarted my watch three times now because messages will not work. Everytime it turns on I get a message saying to re-enter my iCloud password on my phone. I keep putting it in correctly trust me. Is anyone else having this issue?

    Do you have 2 factor authentication enabled for your AppleID? If so you need to create an 'app specific password' for logging into iMessage I believe.

    Go to https://appleid.apple.com/ and look at the Password and Security section.

    I will try this now. So when it asks for my iCloud password I just put in the app specific one?

    IT WORKED! Thank you very much

    I think so... not really sure. I had to generate an app specific password for messages on my MacbookPro once I'd enabled 2-factor which is why I suggested that as a possible option.
