Same watch here. Even before Pie, mine never showed on the Bluetooth icon at the top that it was currently connected. Even in the Bluetooth settings it didn't show as being currently connected. Only in the Wear app did it show connectivity. Same behaviors now with Pie.

I am experiencing a problem that I can consistently replicate. The issue prevents using a Bluetooth headset for a phone call. I can replicate the issue using the steps below with multiple headsets. The issue started only after the Pie update.
Jabra Elite 65t
Plantronics Voyager Legend
Steps to replicate:
1) With no Bluetooth headset connected or powered on, place or answer a call.
2) Power on a Bluetooth headset and wait for it to connect.
At this point, the call used to switch to the headset automatically. Sometimes a call would not switch automatically, but tapping the onscreen Bluetooth button on the active call screen would switch the call to the headset.
After the Pie update, if I power on an already paired and working Bluetooth headset, the call audio will not switch over. Checking under Settings > Bluetooth, the headset will show that it is only connected for Media Audio. If I then tap the headset in the list and try to turn on the toggle for Call Audio, the toggle goes right back to off. The toggle for Call Audio will remain off until the phone is next rebooted.
I factory reset the phone, reinstalled my necessary apps, paired my Bluetooth devices, and tried to replicate this again. The very first time after the factory reset, this process worked. Every time thereafter, the process fails as detailed above.
Is this a known issue?
