Gear s3 won't automatically reconnect to bluetooth when back in range.

Hello wonder if you can help.

 

I have just purchased a Gear s3 and I have it paired and connected to my iPhone 6. The watch works perfect until I become out of Bluetooth range and thus my watch will lose connection, which is as expected. The problem comes when I’m back in Bluetooth range i.e. back with my phone the gear s3 will not automatically reconnect like other devices I have left it 30mins plus and it still won’t automatically reconnect. I have to manually keep turning Bluetooth on and off on both the watch and phone and then clicking on both the Bluetooth connections on my phone (Gear S3(DC10) & Gear S3(DC10) LE) to try and get it to reconnect eventually after going through this process multiple times it will finally connect again. Any help will be appreciated as I can’t keep doing this every time I’m away from my phone. Thanks In advance.

Just bought the active 2 and it is a disgrace that this post has been running for 3 1/2 years and Samsung have not helped. The clear cache works for me but I have to do it every time I lose connection. I am trying the battery optimiser fix now. Phone is mi 9. I have lost alll faith in Samsung.

not really a solution for all!

galaxy wear use 2 hide app: watch plugin (one for watch model) and Samsung Accessory Service.

by an undiscovered way, this apps works only when phone restart, then after a bit (or a lot) of time, this apps will down, and not start again! you need to restart the phone if you need to connect with galaxy wear app.

i've tried with battery save policy, app optimizer an so on, nothing to do!

The bluetooth also not auto-reconnect, and cache clear not work.

but... when i use the s8+ (and only this) all working good... WHY!?!?
