    I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and just got a Moto 360. Most things work well but when I dictate a text message to the phone, it shows up in the correct conversation in the phone and shows as being sent but is never received by other party. I've tried three recipients and two different SMS apps in the phone.

    S5 is running 4.4.4 (ANI2), Android Wear is current (1.0.2.1476973). The 360 updated to Software version 4.4W.2 when I turned it on.

    I've been on the phone with Motorola support three times and gotten no satisfaction. I did hear that the 360 update is only days old and I wonder if there isn't a bug that has not yet been reported. Any thoughts? Any experience with this combination working?

    I've tried the built-in Samsung Messages app and Google Hangouts.

    I may have found a clue/bug. When looking at Android Wear and Moto 360 promotional material I found mention that you can "reply to text messages." A subtle difference from *sending* original text messages. I tried last night and it turns out I can reply to a message!

    I can't send from my moto 360. Only reply to them.

    So Motorola to Motorola. That suggests Samsung isn't the problem in my case.

    I don't believe that was ever a feature of the moto 360.

    Eh guess it is. I need to try this when I leave work. People look at me funny when I "Ok Google" here.

    Using Hangouts with your Moto 360

    If *starting* an SMS conversation isn't a feature of the 360 then when I say "text bob" it should reply "What you talkin' about, Willis?" NOT put the message in my phone as if it was sent.

    Well, I read it but I was a little confused, I guess. Are you saying it works for you with your Droid Maxx and 360?
