Tethering to smartwatches - more information
The following comments have been left over on SWT, and I wanted to echo them here just in case the posters don’t get around to doing it themselves. Perhaps @sonia_sophie_ataunna can comment on this with her experience using the recommended app. Hoping this will work for all these wonderful Android 5.1 watches using the lame Sinwear app for tethering. Here are the posts:

How are you doing today? I just wanted to say Thank you for this channel. Because of your work and love for smart watches, it has allowed me to research and buy the No.1 D6 Smart Watch. Because of this i wanted to tell you and your subscribers how to respond to text messages and calls while tethering from your Phone. Its tricky and will cause 2.99, but it works. The program is called Tablet Talk: SMS & Texting App, you have to install it on both devices.At first set up your phone as the Tablet in settings and your watch as the phone also in settings. Once there you can connect both devices using Bluetooth, when they connect reverse the setting and import your contacts. When all is setup, you can then respond to messages on your watch. Go back to setting on your phone and watch, there you will see an option to allow you to auto connect and sync, push calls from your phone to watch (Bluetooth Headsets needed). Also you may have to clear out the launcher data to get the program to show if your using the default watch launcher.

If you do run into problems with the messager crashing, place table talk v1.9.2 on your watch. I have a link here with a fix for android 5.0. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1a4RIDkf0yWUDVnVWJtV0prVmM/view
