Same. Can't connect Galaxy Watch 4 and my phone.
Hasn't this been an ongoing issue for at least days now? I did a search on Google and found people having issues like 3 or 4 days ago. Samsung needs to step it up and fix this in a more reasonable time.
And why do issues like this even exist? If they would do their jobs properly, this kind of stuff can be avoided with proper QC.
I just bought a watch 4 and have a s22+ and I receive calls on the watch but sometimes it vibrates and rings and most the time nothing. When it comes to messages all I have come on there is the orange notification dot. Is this similar to your issue.
