This has worked!!!! ...At the sacrifice of resetting my gear... and the backup I had on the App has gone... But it worked, thanks. However this does pose the question, what is to stop someone doing this with a watch that was remotely locked for the genuine purpose? if it was stolen etc?

Afternoon, I'm after some help from anyone in the know.
I was mountain biking at the weekend usign my watch to track my ride and had my phone in my camelbak. My watch was randomly vibrating during the ride but I was concentrating on not killing myself on the trail so didnt look at the screen. When I got back to the car my watch was showing 'Gear Locked' 'To unlock gear, connect to phone via Bluetooth' message.
I have researched this and this is the message that shows when you remotely lock your watch if its stolen etc.
The problem I have got is that the watch doesnt seem to be in a visible bluetooth state and my phone or Gear app cannot see the watch. Its strange too as my phone does not show my watch in the list of paired devices...
I have spoken to Samsung who have said to take it to a repair centre that is local to me but I have just called them and they dont do wearable repairs, it needs to be an 'experience centre', nearest one to me is the trafford centre and I porbably wont be able to get all the way over there until the weekend.
Anyone got any ideas why 1 - my watch locked itself and 2 - why the phone that it has been paired to for the last 8 months can now not connect to it?
Thanks in advance!
