If this app allowed notifications when an iPhone user receives a text or an iMessage on a Fossil watch that would be great. Even if they can’t respond, it would be wonderful to be notified of the incoming notification if your iPhone isn’t in your presence.
Google and the Wear OS app will only allow you to have one Wear OS watch paired on IPhone. If you have more than 1 watch, like many watch enthusiasts do, you’ll need to reset and repair each time you wanna switch. Of course if you have Google powered phone, you can pair as many wear OS devices as you like. 🙄
My watch will not stay connected for any significant amount of time. I am searching for an alternative. A significant update would be appreciated,
Bluetooth disconnects and when it reconnects, if I’m on a call it will hang up my call!
It’s crazy how you Apple people don’t realize, the reason this app doesn’t work properly is because Apple will NEVER let something work as intended that isn’t an Apple product. They build that into their platform to FORCE you to buy Apple only products like an Apple Watch. Then you get brainwashed into thinking it’s better than anything out there on the market. Part of their business model. This app and ALL your watches work amazing on Android phones. I was forced to get an iPhone for work, but still use my Android for personal use. I’m still astonished you all think Apple is better lol. So I’m forced to get an Apple Watch for work, and keep my amazing watch that uses the Wear OS specifically for my Android phone. So break away from your lust of Apple phones and products if you want to actually use your watch how it was designed. I do 100% agree, if Google didn’t get full permission to completely integrate with iOS they shouldn’t have even bothered. Thus all your bad reviews. Sounds like they just made something that sort of worked with iPhones as a kickback from watch manufacturers so they could put “works with iPhone“ on the box so you all would get tricked into buying it.
This app won’t stay connected
I tried connecting Bluetooth to my new iPhone after copying the backup from last IPhone but the app doesn’t let me do that. I tried everything which is possible except using hard reset on my phone (this app and watch isn't worth hard resetting my iphone). It always says disconnect your watch even though there is nothing there. Not to mention this watch is also good for nothing. Its Basic minus 1
I got my iPhone knowing that I wouldn’t be able to do near as much as the stuff with my watch as I would on an android phone and I went into this saying to myself OK I really didn’t use the stuff in the first place boy was I wrong it’s actually kind of stupid on how limited iOS and android wear really is so that’s why I switched to Apple Watch to add back those extra features that I actually miss The last time I had connection issues so I’ll see how this goes and leave an update
I have had this watch for a while as it was a gift to me and it paired with my iPhone 8plus with no problem. I was even able to connect my socials for new watch faces but ever since I got my new phone and updated both the watch and app it runs slower and does not stay connected. I had to reset the watch multiple times before I could get it to connect to my phone and even then do many of the features do not work anymore. I can’t even connect my socials to change the watch faces. I love the watch but the new updates are just making it useless.
