Can anyone help with the following Bluetooth Problem.
My phone is paired to a number of Bluetooth devices and they all work fine. Except for the inbuilt bluetooth in my Skoda. The phone connects to the Bluetooth of the car just fine, and I can play music via A2DP. With a bit of fiddling I can also make calls as you will see.
But what is happening is that when in the car and I receive or make a call, on the car kit, the phone tries to trigger the voice element on my smart watch and not the car kit.
Lets look at the setup of the two main devices
As you can see from the image above, the Skoda carkit is enabled for calls, and the Huawei Watch GT2 Pro is not enabled for calls.
In the next image we can see what happens when I try to call by voicemail from the car kit.
The image of the phone shows the connected call is trying to connect to the smart watch - (small yellow box on the left). since the watch is not enabled for calls, the call is only taking place on the handset itself.
Now if I click the watch in the small yellow box, I get a pop up asking me to choose from 2 devices.
If I select the Skoda BT 3904 then as can be seen from the rightmost image the Skoda kit is selected and it is "green" active - so the call is now taking place on the car kit.
Interesting to note that if I select Huawei Watch GT 2Pro in the middle image, the call does take place on my SmartWatch.
First and foremost, I never had this behaviour with my previous device, a OnePlus 6T, that was bulletproof with it's Bluetooth implementation.
Clearly the SG 21+ is not working as it should be - is there a way to specify the default bluetooth device for calls because the current situation is basically unworkable for me and I might as well send the new handset back to the carrier.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

It's definitely weird because I'm sat at my desk and right now my phone is connected to my watch and Plantronics Bluetooth headset. In this configuration I get exactly the same behaviour. So if we think about the 4 devices:
1 Car, 2 Watch, 3 Headset and 4 Mobile Device
The only thing to change is the 4th item Mobile Device. I never had this issue with my OnePlus 6T at all
Interestingly, if I go into the phone's Bluetooth settings and disconnect from the watch, I still get the same behaviour. only when I power off the watch does the Bluetooth connection take place on the car/headset as required.
I wonder if it is connection order, so I'm thinking of unpairing the watch and setting it up again

OK, well I didn't expect it to work, but it has - I went into Bluetooth settings, and unpaired the watch.
Then I made a call to ensure that it was placed on the headset - it should work as it is the only connected device at this point - and it did indeed work as expected.
So then I went into Bluetooth settings again and re-paired the watch as well as linked it to my account in the Huawei health app.
First test placing call and it came up on the headset
Just been out to the car and Second test placing a call and it came up on the car kit
Technology is weird sometimes - it has to be something to do with the way Samsung bugger about with Android though.
Key thing to note - don't mess about with the Bluetooth settings for the watch after getting it to work - or the whole situation starts again.

I have/had the same issue.
When my watch magic 2 (its the same as the GT2 but with Honor branding) is connected to the phone it has always the highes priority in the bluetooth stack and because of this I couldn't use my car audio for calls or actually with android auto it was worse, you couldn't even select bluetoot the phone always defaulted back to phone internal speaker.
Now after a test with my earbuds it looks like downgrading Huawei Healt app did the trick.
This is how I did it:
I did not disconnect my watch from the phone.
Went into Settings -> Apps and force stopped Huawei Health, than I deleted app cache and data, after that uninstalled it.
Than I installed Huawei Health from Google Play (because it has an older version [v10.1.1.312] than the latest update[v184.108.40.2060])
After install I re paired my watch in the app than rebooted the phone.
Now as I said earlier it looks like everything is back to normal.
Also if you have HMS Core app installed uninstall that too. HMS Core is not required any more for Health app to work properly.
Oh and the most important! Do Not Update The Huawei Healt App!
