I just got my new Galaxy Watch 5.   Can you connect the phone, watch and a Bluetooth headset at the same time?  I have all 3 connected but when I want to make or receive calls on the watch the headset will disconnect and the call goes through the speaker on the watch.  To make and receive calls on the watch I have to disconnect it from the phone.  I  don't want others the hear my  phones calls.   Apple devices can do this but Samsung can't?

Try pairing your headset with the watch, instead of pairing both thru your phone.

Watch to phone, then headset to watch. Make sure you remove the headset from your phone's Bluetooth settings so there are no continuity issues.

It didn't work. I unpaired the headset firm the phone. Made a call from my phone and the call came out from the watch speaker.

On your watch 5 you can select which device do you want the phone call and Bluetooth to connect to and/or in the Galaxy wearable app

Yes, I know that. When I want to use the watch with the Bluetooth the calls will not go through the Bluetooth the calls go through the watch speaker.

Thank you for reaching out. I can certainly understand the importance of not wanting others to hear your conversation through your watch's speaker. As @KennewickMan stated, have you tried to go through your watch, go to settings > connections > Bluetooth, and pair your Bluetooth headset specifically through the watch separately?

 

Are you pairing both Bluetooth headsets through the Galaxy wearables app at the same time?

 

What type of Bluetooth headset are you trying to pair with your Galaxy watch 5?

It's simple just connect your watch to your phone. Then earbuds to your phone only.
