Just got an update pushed to my phone, updated Galaxy Gear to Galaxy Wear. Paired to my phone running Android P right away, looks to be fixed!
The watch also got a software update, battery enhancements and security updates I believe.
If you do not get an automatic update, try manually updating the gear software on the phone. Happy to be able to use my watch again.
Apr 12, 2019 - I had this problem today.
To get to the point, I realized no Galaxy apps would recognize / connect to the Wi-Fi network - to accomplish the required update. I turned Wi-Fi off. I was then able to update the "Galaxy Wearable" app over the carrier's network....
I had to reset my watch (lost all my settings) and bypass the initial phone-watch connection (click on the icon at the bottom right (?) and select to use the watch without syncing to a phone. I then proceeded to connections, connected with Bluetooth, and followed the setup process that way. The watch was reset and reconnected after powerup.
I am expieriencing the same issues. I have a Samsung Note 8 phone and it is unable to pair with my Frontier S3 watch. I have conducted all the steps in this forum with no luck. What are my next steps?
@mubassir1840 What troubleshooting steps have you tried in regards to your issue.
I had trouble pairing when I first got my Gear s3. After no success last night and Samsung recommending to take it to a service center; I found a solution this morning.
I reset my network connections and then I was able to pair my Gear S3 Frontier to my Galaxy Note 9.
