It's fine at the usual Bluetooth distances with my phone but with my watch, I'm running into exactly what you're talking about. I've done the same things too, resetting and all that. Phone up to date, app up to date, buds up to date, watch up to date. If I had to guess, I'd put money on some sort of interference because it really crops up bad when I go outside. Perhaps since my phone is Bluetooth 5.0 and the watch is using 4.2, that's why I see the issue with the watch and not the phone? It only seems to happen outside, the watch and buds interact normally inside. The phone and buds work fine outside. I'm thinking the combination of a weaker Bluetooth signal from the watch and a larger amount of interference outside from surrounding Wi-Fi networks could be the issue but I need to do more testing myself. Anyways, here's my stuff. LTE Provider for both devices: Sprint Model of phone connected to: Samsung Galaxy S8+ - SM-G955U Model of watch connected to: Galaxy Watch 46mm 4G LTE capable - SM-R805U Software version of phone: G955USQS5DSE5 Software version of watch: Tizen - 22.214.171.124 / SW - R805USQU1BSA7 Wearables app version: 126.96.36.19931361 Wearables Galaxy Watch Plugin version: 2.2.05.19050851 Software version of Buds: R170XXU0ASE1 Switch your watch to your other wrist. For some reason it helped me.

I have the same issue when I connect my watch to my buds live. As long as I keep my arm and watch above my chest it works fine, but as soon as I drop it below my waist the connection breaks. I thought it was the buds so I returned them and got another pair and it still does it. Samsung needs to be made aware of this issue.
