In the quick settings tiles, what was formerly sleep mode is now the modes button, adding a step to turning on modes when it isn't scheduled. This is quite annoying if you want to re-enable sleep mode because you decided to sleep in, as you have to stare at the bright watch longer and interact with a menu instead of just pressing one button and being done. Please add back the sleep mode button in addition to the modes tile. Thank you.

The change to how routines work on the Galaxy Watch 6 are terrible. I want the sleep button and theater button separate. It's now one toggle in the quick settings that opens a menu where I have to select sleep or theater mode. It's an unnecessary extra step. I don't ever use Theater mode and I want the sleep toggle the way it was before this unnecessary change.

Be sure to make your voice heard about this! Other individuals want this back too! Head to the Samsung Members app's Support tab and submit this via an Error report under Send feedback. If enough people ask for this back, there is potential for the devs to undo this change, or simply make this menu optional. The more people who report this, the faster this functionality can return!

I do it every day as an error report. If I could return this watch I would!

Sadly the Member's app is not available to the non-Samsung phone users as if our purchase of the watch doesn't matter 😠

Yes, I have heard about this very serious problem. 😭 Be sure to leave a detailed review on the app's page in the Play Store.

This was just changed in the most recent version of the software and it is absolutely terrible. It also doesn't respect manual mode activation if you're on phone sync.

I love how the only response is a tone deaf, "leave a message, we may get back to you" from the "ambassadors".

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.

There are nights where I have to choose Sleep Mode 3 or 4 times before it will finally engage the mode. It's pretty obnoxious when already struggling to keep my eyes open...
