Bring back Theater Mode! The new unified modes button sucks and for some reason has to sync with my phone? My watch should be able to use theater and sleep mode independently of my phone.

This only recently changed.

Samsung please change it back!

My watch 6 theater mode has 1,2,3,4 hours option and can change them from watch easily without turning on sync with phone.

Don't install any updates. This changed for me sometime in the last few weeks likely via an auto update

I see, what is happening is you have sync with phone on, on your watch settings, when i turn sync with phone on from watch, i face the same thing but sync with phone off no issues

Mine is off. But it doesn't roll back to the old functionality. The dedicated theater mode toggle is gone from quick panel and the theater mode under the modes button uses whatever it made me set up from the phone.

I see what you're saying now. If I go into the settings menu and turn the mode on from there it does let me set how long it should be on for. But I've always used it from the quick panel (pull down) so burying it in settings like this definitely sucks

Alright. I have a workaround. With Sync Modes With Phone disabled, if I LONG PRESS the modes button in quick panel and then choose theater mode, it prompts me for how long just like it used to. Definitely a BIG step back in interface design / intuitiveness but at least I can almost do what I used to.
