My S5 was reset and now I can't sync my Gear S without the watch asking for a factory reset...HELP!

So my S5 was factory reset by accident and now it won't sync with my Gear S without me having to factory reset the Gear S first. As my Verizon Gear S uses a different phone line from my S5, I don't want to reset it because I have a lot of texts on there that I want to save. I can't even back them up because it's currently not synced with any phone, even if I reinstall Samsung Gear on my S5.

So my question is is there anyway I can sync my S5 with my Gear S without doing a factory reset on the Gear S? I believe I came across a method awhile go when I was just browsing about the Gear S but now I can't find the instructions anymore.

Please help, thank you!
