Since a Gear Wear update on my S8, my Gear S2 no longer automatically reconnects to the phone when in range. I have to manually open the app and click connect. This was never necessary before and is quite annoying. I've been through all the settings and also tried clearing the Bluetooth cache but to no effect. Any ideas?
- please ensure that Bluetooth connection is within range (10m)
-No obstacles such as walls or electrical equipment
-Restart your smart watch, press the Power button once and then tap Restart
-Clear cache of Wearables app, go to Settings > Apps > Wearables app
-Clear data of Wearables app, go to Settings > Apps > Wearables app
-see if Wearables app has the latest version, you may check this on Google Play or Galaxy Store
-Check for any software updates for your smartwatch, go to Menu Settings > Info > Update (if there's one)
Backup the data on your watch and have it factory reset, Menu Settings > Info > Factory Reset.
If persists, see an engineer at your nearest support centre for checking and fix.
That's a chatbot reply, isn't it?
Having a similar issue: Gear S2 is recognized by app but the app stopps at that stage and doesn't connect.
Cleared cach, data and even reinstalled app, reset S2 twice. No success...
