I was very shocked that my watch  Samsung Gear SM V -700 does not work with this phone Samsung galaxy S21 5G Ultra. I tried to have them in perfect form for many years. I needed them for my job and now I have to throw them in the trash $ 324.00. I tried to contact the Samsung, but they only gave me a message that there is no more app for my watch since they are of the old model.

Unfortunately once a device has reached end of life, or when the software has stopped being supported, we would no longer be able to guarantee compatibility with various features. You are always welcome to check www.samsung.com directly for compatible watch models for the S21 series devices.

Yea, the 700 was launched September 23, 2013, so over eight years old ... I'm shocked the battery is still good.

If it's that important to continue to have a 700, you can buy one on eBay for about $40 USD

@user751201tmO21  and @Stephanie Nikki ,

I get that but the watch no longer works with my Note 3.  Normally an app is frozen at the last supported version and it will still operate with devices it is compatible with.  Samsung forces an update to the Gear Manager which works with the Gear watch to the 2021 version of the Wear app and thus breaking the watch.

Hopefully someone will figure out a way around the auto update.
