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.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Whatever the software team did seems to have resolved the issue after the latest updates (of Samsung Gear on Android OS I believe). My watch connects to my phone automatically all the time now via Bluetooth.
What software version do you have. I have an ATT S3 with Tizen 184.108.40.206 and I still have this problem. Yesterday I had to do factory reset 3 times to get it to connect to bluetooth on the phone. On reconnect, it would leave the LT in place and connect to headphone. Of course that did not work.
Do I have a different problem?
I've been doing some tests for the last month and at least for now the problem is gone; every time I get near the phone (oneplus 5) it will connect in 2 minutes. I really don't know if it's TASKER or Samsung work it out, and francly I'm not going to turn TASKER off. For me, nor connecting it's enough to sell the S3
