Unable to connect my Nokia 8 to Galaxy Watch

First Poster



I bought a Galaxy Watch but I can't setup to watch with my phone Nokia 8 :


Model : Nokia 8 TA-1012

Android : 8.1.0


Galaxy Werable :

Galaxy Watch Plugin :


State :


I used the Galaxy Werable app to setup the watch but the watch remains locked on this screen "Check your phone to complete setup" and the phone "Association in progress" and after a while "This operation takes longer than expected, press CANCEL to retry"


The problem is that the Bluetooth connection between the watch and the phone does not remain active.


I followed some advices in Nokia and Samsung forum :


- Reset bluetooth cache (Settings -> app -> Bluetooth -> Storage)

- Uninstall and install the 3 app again

- Reset Galaxy Werable, Plugin cache (Settings -> app -> Galaxy Werable, Plugin -> Storage)

- Restart the phone after the cache cleaning


I have a Samsung S6 (the screen is broken and the battery is discharging too fast). I managed to do the setup with the S6. So now I have a "watch" wihtout the "smart" beacause I can't use the S6. After that I updated the watch and tried again to connect my Nokia 8 but no success.


Someone can help me ?

HI @_mic

If you had previously paired the watch to another device then you will be required to factory reset the device in order to pair it to your Nokia. To proceed with a reset go to your Apps Menu and select Settings > Gear Info > Reset Gear > Tick the box to confirm. Once the reset is complete, follow the on screen prompts to pair it to your phone.
