S8 plus notifications not being sent to Gear S3

First Poster

Is anyone else having issues with receiving notifications on their Gear S3 when being sent from their S8 plus? Notifications are very intermittent!!! My watch works fine as if I connect it to another phone I get all my notifications.

Hey @Weaths,


Are you having problems with all notifications, or notifications from certain apps? Is your Samsung Gear app up to date? Head to Samsung Gear app > Settings > About Gear > Update Gear Software.

I am having the same issues. And like the previous person who asked the question, I can sync to another phone and everything works correctly. The software is updated.

I have similar problem with my S8 on Gear S3 setup keep changing on gear app and some calls not being forwarded. Bluetooth disconnecting at a 10-15 range and many other issues that I did not have with same watch connected with S7.
