Samsung S3 frontier not connecting to Pixel 3

My Samsung S3 frontier is not connecting to Pixel 3. Is it because of Andriod 9 Pie? It has been more than a month. But still unable to use it. Tried to reset to factory settings but no use. Now the watch sits at home.

It used to work perfectly with my pixel 2. When the OS got updated to Android 9 watch stopped connecting to the phone. Same happened with Pixel 3 since it came with Pie 9 installed. Is there a chance of fixing this problem or I have wasted my money buying frontier?

Samsung One Ui / Pie is out on Beta just now so that could be possibly hindering connection.

Hi @Sunny1988

 

It's coming soon for the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. Keep an eye on the Samsung Members app for updates.

When I try to manage notifications my gear  by tapping Settings the next screenasks "Connect using Bluetooth?" if I tap the right side with the check system has a blue circlre rotating and after a couple of chirps the screen comes back saying Can't connect, try again.

On my pixle 3 under settings blur=etooth says Gear S3 (B483) Input.

How do I correct?
