Set Nest temperature from Samsung Galaxy Gear (2, Neo etc.)

I use this recipe to send temperature commands from the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 (non-Wear). I simply created a contact on my phone named "Nest" with a short, non-working mobile number like "11" to avoid actually messaging someone. Next, from the Gear watch, I use the message option with the trigger below to the Nest contact. Or you can use the S-Voice command: "Send message to Nest"..."message"..."Set temperature to 70 degrees". The watch sends the text to the non-working Nest contact, IFTTT reads the text and adjusts the Nest! Adjust the trigger phrase to include different Nest titles like "upstairs" or downstairs and have fun!
