Since the last update there is an issue with selecting permissions for apps.. this is across all apps including Samsung and Google apps.

 When you have the option to select a specific permission ie microphone access or location for an app, your selection is ignored. Almost as if the watch doesn't recognise it.

Everything else works fine from a touchscreen perspective. This is only an issue with permissions.

Support told me to reset my phone and since then apps that were working fine now longer work properly because I can't add permissions.

To reproduce, download an app that requires specific permissions.

This is serious but Samsung support are dragging their feet. 

Anyone else seen this issue?

I still use Apple devices (well maintaining family ones) and Google (not Samsung) have taken a similar path with by app permissions, it is a pain in the rear, but it was all about the user having more control over use of their data.
