Can anyone help .. I have the note 8 .. also a Samsung gear 2 watch .. the watch is connecting and I'm able to change watch face etc but no contacts are being transferred or notifications.
If your gear app preference settings are correct to allow notifications etc and everything is up to date then first try deleting the pairing and reset it back up.
If no joy then reset your watch.
Finally a Samsung Service Centre or Samsung Experience Store will be able to help you further.
