I've uninstalled and reinstalled galaxy wearable app, restarted both the phone and the watch, and tried pairing it while my phone is on wifi and on mobile data. Keeps prompting me to check my network connection.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Same issue here, recently wanted a fresh start on both my Galaxy A12 and Watch4, but now I can't configure the watch at all! Worked fine when I first setup the watch, but this is the only problem so far. I can confirm I have both a stable Wi-Fi and LTE connection, and neither device has received any damage other than light cosmetic scratches.
Having the same problem. I'm pretty angry about it too--I was seeing MASSIVE battery drain from Google Play Services (according to the battery monitor), and when I saw my watch wouldn't connect, I assumed the two things were related (since they started at the same time).
After resetting my watch, rolling back Google Play Services, and a bunch of other things, I nuked my phone (factory reset), which is MASSIVELY inconvenient (since it's also my car key), and it still doesn't **bleep**g work. This is . . . upsetting. Also, Samsung, better error messaging would be great.
The issue is definitely on Samsung's end. Reinstalling the wearable app/re-adding the devices makes it search for the plugin and the servers seem to be down and thus blocking any pairing. Hope they fix this soon. Very annoying
Support on my end told me they couldn't comment on this issue when I shared this link with them because it was the US community forum. For those wondering this is a worldwide issue even if your support is telling you otherwise
Hello, I understand how frustrating it is not being able to pair your device due to a network connection error. There are few things to try to troubleshooting the issue.
2. You can follow the steps here to correctly setup the watch with the phone.
3. If you are still receiving the Network Connection error, try troubleshooting the Wearables app by Clearing the app cache, and uninstalling/reinstalling the app.
4. If the error persists, I would recommend submitting an error report via our Samsung Members app. By doing this, it will alert our engineers. 🙂
