Answer:
Answer:

If you are trying to text iPhone users, you need to have some type of data connection. iMessage requires data, either wi-fi or cellular. Unless you are using an Apple Watch that is a GPS + Cellular, at which you need to have the Apple Watch connected to wi-fi to be able to send an iMessage. See the information here if you are using the Apple Watch without the paired iPhone. How to use your Apple Watch without your iPhone nearby - Apple Support
