I am unable to connect my Gear S3 Frontier (Bluetooth) to my Gear app on my Galaxy Note 8 phone. After a recent software update, my gear s3 just won't connect to my phone. I manually tried connecting within the app, and it takes forever and ever and say pairing underway and does nothing. It was working fine before this update. Please help.

Have you tried clearing the cache and data on the Gear Manager application? You can do that by going to Settings>Apps>Gear Manager on your phone, then pressing Storage. The options to clear the cache and data are in there.
i would delete the gear s3 from the bt list or gear manager list, then factory data reset the gear s3, and try to connect again
also, update the gear manager, plug-in, and other things that need to be updated.
the same is happening to me since the new update. been 2 months now. I tried everything here and it is still not connecting on rhe Galaxy S8 Note. please advise. im ticked that I cant get it working.
I was able to connect by going to settings on watch and connect to new phone (which of course is your same phone). You will loose watch settings but better than not working. Just have to setup the watch they way you had it. Hope this helps.
