Anyone know how to resolve the watch 4/5 manager crashing everytime the phone wants to send a notification or data to the watch?

I've already tried to uninstall the manager and wear app and setup again. It worked for one day before it began crashing again. 

Still crashing after beta 4 install. I've cleared cache partition.

I found a fix for mine. I uninstalled the wear app and the watch manager. Then found the apk one version older and installed that along with the watch plug-in. My watch has now worked for almost a week with no issues where I was resetting daily.

I may try that as it's getting ridiculous that Samsung can't push out a fixed version. And now that it seems to only impact esim users, chalk up another esim issue. Samsung really has a poor esim implementation. Visual voicemail using the built in app doesn't work if using esim and I've even had issues while roaming while using esim.

What's weird is the current version of Galaxy Wear app was last updated July 21. How did it work from then till 2 or 3 weeks ago? A monthly security patch messed it up? I guess a rhetorical question.

And for those of you who say you've managed to fix the crashing, have you tried to reboot your phone? In my case I fixed by uninstalling and reinstalling but that only worked as a fix until I reboot.

Sorry that I took you down a rabbit hole. Sad that Samsung isn't being communicative about the issue and what they're doing to resolve it.

Seems to be one of the several esim debacles. Next, they need to resolve the esim visual voicemail activation problems.
