Hello,

 

I'm having issues connecting the buds to the wearables app.  

 

The buds will connect to my phone via blue tooth and I'm able to hear music.  The issue is when I open wearables and try to connect to adjust ambient sound, equalizer, etc...it will not show a connected status.  Status remains "Disconnected from earbuds".

 

I've cleared the cache on my bluetooth, uninstalled and reinstalled wearbles, and still i have this problem.  

 

What am I doing wrong or are the parts faulty?

 

Phone:  Samsung S9+

 

thanks,

Same here. I have tried everything I could think of. Contacted Samsung text support and they told me to reset the ear buds. I did that and they still do not connect, but they still work

Trying to remember from the last time I did this, you have to connect the buds via Bluetooth and then go into the gear wearable app. In the top left corner there are 3 lines. tap that and a menu pops up and near the top there should be a plus sign with "add new device". select that and look for your device in the list. if it is not in the list it might not be supported.

I have:

 

1. Uninstalled and reinstalled Wearables, force stopped, cleared cache, cleared data and restart the phone.

2. Unpaired the Buds+ from the phone.

3. Connected and paired the Buds+ to a different phone.

4. Have paired the Buds+ through the Wearables app only.

5. Fully charged the Buds+.

 

I can hear audio and use them for calls but all features in the app are unavailable. Clicking "connect' does nothing but cause an orange circle to spin for a few seconds or produce an error message "cannot connect to Galaxy Buds+".

 

At this price point and with this manufacturer they should just work.
