The icon on my Watch 4 Classic changed from the Sleep Mode icon to the Modes and Routines icon.
Now it takes two steps to do what used to be one. Click Modes and Routines, THEN click Sleep Mode.
Even deleted all other modes, but still have to do both steps. Tried to set a shortcut on the phone to do it from there. Can't find a way to get back to one- step click to put phone and watch to sleep.
What's different is -- i can still put both to sleep by hitting sleep mode on either one. It's just one more unnecessary step.
In the current version of watch UI, my sleep-mode was replaced with modes. Instead of quickly tapping sleep and having it instantly go into sleep mode, it now requires me to click once, wait two seconds, then click sleep mode, and wait another two seconds for it to enable. This is very, very slow performance esp considering the old sleep-mode was instant and worked just fine.
Secondly, at times sleep mode shuts itself off, or, turns itself on due to some sync issue with the phone. It is maddening because it won't always register you clicking the "turn off" button on the watch, unless you turn off blue tooth.
This is a classic case of the old sleep mode wasn't broke, so why fix it, Samsung? I would never use any of the other modes like movie, etc. Do not disturb works fine for everything else.
Please revert the modes to be sleep-mode only, make it instantly turn on, and fix sync issues.
