I have the buds pro with touch controls disabled in the app... and yet time and again the touch controls are re-enabled.
It seems that the app loses contact with the buds and so the buds re-enable touch controls but the gear app does not reestablish a connection.
The music or sounds keeps playing via bluetooth during this although interrupted by whatever accidental touch control that has been activated.
It appears that re-seating the buds causes the disconnect (just pushing the buds into the ear for example), this should be able to be fixed by making this less sensitive, perhaps putting a second or two of delay between the bud losing "contact" with the ear and the app disconnection.
The device with the app is a Galaxy S8.
The buds work really well apart from this so any help would be appreciated.
