Hey guys.
Just restored by AW S5 from a backup. Everything is working great so far and I finally was able to download all my health information from my phone and watch (yay!).

Unfortunately I noticed my messages in my new S5 watch has no messages. I followed some troubleshooting articles (reset iMessage, pair unpair, reset Apple watch, reset phone) you name it.

Still, no messages. I'm baffled as to why this is happening too. Any ideas?

They don’t sync from setup. But new messages should.

I setup a series 5 today from a backup, and in the messages app, only new messages show up. I had thought since I had enabled messages in iCloud, it would sync old messages as well? anyone been able to see old messages on their new apple watch?
