Gear S3 Classic watch stuck in reboot loop

Hi there,

 

Purchased a Gear S3 Classic watch in October and, for some reason, woke up this morning and it was stuck at the "Samsung Gear S3 Classic" login screen and not starting up.

 

I've read numerous posts from people having the same issue and I've also tried the various fixes (pressing the power button until "rebooting" shows, pressing power button multiple times, selecting "recovery" option etc) but NOTHING is working. All I have now is a very expensive watch stuck on a login screen.

 

Has anyone figured out a fix for this issue yet or have any suggestions about how to get this problem resolved?

 

Sold all my Apple gear (iPhone, Apple Watch, Macbook Air, iPad Pro) back in October to move everything across to Samsung (S8 Phone, Galaxy Book 2 in 1, Gear S3 Classic watch). I'm hoping I haven't made a mistake. Come on Samsung prove to me I've made the right choice.

ok i found a way to fix it. It is only a software issue and the only thing we need to do is to download the ios via wifi from a computer to the watch. 

 

I just did it and i have my watch back in 10 minutes. 

 

Anyone would like to send him the links or even the files and youtube instructions please let me know. 



Greetings.

I tried setting up the transfer using 'Download (wireless)' option within the 'Bootup options' page, but by setting up the Direct WiFi directly as required by the watch to the computer, the computer's WiFi connection to the internet is severed. This tells me I better have the ios on my computer before I start, but Samsung will not make the ios available. Where did you get the ios file AND what was the complete procedure you uploaded the ios to the watch?! I'm so close to fixing this, I can 'taste' it!!

Thank you.

I saw the links for the 760 and 770, but mine is 775.

 

Thank you.

Apparenlty,

 

Samsung forum here doent like to give to us the simple solution and they have ban - erased some of our messages. 

 

I will share this link with you and anyone could download it. The files are for S3 smartwatches  760 and 770.

 

Instructions are given on my previous messages and links from you tube as well with detailed info of how could you upload the OS for your S3 watch.

Hi @Astanapane. The link you've just posted was broken, so I've deleted it. Furthermore, we only recommend users install updates through official means, hence the removal of an earlier post by yourself.
