I recently had the misfortune to discover my A3-2017 had a broken screen,
I placed the sim card into my new tab s6 and transferred apps and photos and tried to set up my Galaxy Watch (sm-r815f) to synchronise notifications.
The wearable app on the Tab S6 only shows Galaxy Buds, Buds+ and Gear IconX as a pickable device,
If the option "Mine's not here" is selected the Watch is not discovered.
I have added the Watch to the Tab S6 in the Bluetooth menu, but still the wearable app does not display the Watch.
As the Watch REQUIRES setup via the app my device is now a £200 paperweight unless someone can offer help.
Hi @Emmalou19888! Firstly, make sure that the Samsung Gear App, the Watch and the tablet's software are all up to date. Also, check that the Bluetooth is turned on for both the tablet and the watch. Then on your tablet, go to: Settings > Apps > Bluetooth Share > Storage > Clear Data. Do this for Samsung Gear Manager app as well, and restart the tablet. Can you connect the watch now?
I'm having the same problem
1. How do you apply updates on the watch before it has been paired?
2. How to you check Bluetooth is enabled?
3. I do not have a Bluetooth sharing app. Which app exactly is meant?
I use a Samsung Tab S6 and a Unihertz Atom. I bought the Samsung Galaxy Watch but it won't connect reliably to the phone and the apps wont work on the tablet. I'll give it 24 hours then Costco can have it back.
I did root my tab s6 and install watch active 2 plugin as flashable zip file, also no way, this is to fair to have a tablet with watch from the same vendor but not working, is there any way to use them together?
