Repeatedly “forgets” watch. I have now had 2 different model Android watches (3 total) and 2 different phones. WearOS will randomly and without notification lose connection to watches. This is EXTREMELY annoying as you can’t not simply re-pair, to fix it requires you to factory reset the watch and go to the whole setup process again. This is just embarrassing. If you can’t, simply make it stay connected, The one thing it’s supposed to do, then at least let us reconnect it when it forgets.
Worked great on my old watch and phone but now I have both a replacement phone and watch and while they are paired, I can’t seem to get the same things to work amd I don’t have the option to add tiles like I used to. This is frustrating because I like the old setup and makes me want to just swap parts out instead of wearing a brand new watch. Both are as updated as can be.
Constantly crashes or won’t allow any of the android watches connect. The fossil smart watch is the only one that will connect. But, only for a few minutes. And it will disconnect. Nothing you do will let it reconnect. Even Uninstalling this app and starting the watch from new. Still won’t connect. Been an issue for over a year now. Each update seems to make it worse and worse. And I know it’s not my phone. Samsung s22 ultra is brand new. And everything Samsung connects without an issue.
Used to work well. My watch started using 10 times the battery after an update and wasn’t sure why. I thought I had an issue with the hardware since I had not changed any setting whatsoever on the watch. Sent a bug report to Mobvoi and they told me it was the software. Apparently the new update makes the GPS stay on when the old setting used to get GPS from my phone itself. Very disappointed in the subtle change that didn’t change anything else.
Got a new phone. S22 Ultra, tried to pair my Gen 6 watch to it and it will not find it in this app. Bluetooth can see it, but the app can not. Followed all instructions for the location, reset the watch and all. Now I have to use an old phone to get it synced and working, but can’t sync it and use on my brand new S22. Going to go back to Samsung watches. What a waste.
Worked great for a couple of weeks then Wear OS disconnected from the watch. The watch itself was still connected to my phone via Bluetooth but the App was acting like it was trying to set it up for the first time and couldn’t find the watch. I had to factory reset it in order to connect. Went another couple of weeks and it did it again. Only fox is a factory retof the watch which is a huge pain.
Terrible connectivity. Your watch will have to run without being connected to your phone. You constantly have to reset to factory settings because it doesn’t keep your watch connected and when you try reconnect, it cannot find your watch, you have to redo the whole thing. They have to do something with this app. It’s very annoying.
I hate this software. Doesn’t matter if it’s on the phone or on the watch. Connectivity is horrible. Everytime I get a new phone I have to reset my watch to factory settings just to get it to connect to the new phone. Once connected (finally, it takes forever to reset), my Google Pixel 6 Pro can’t seem to figure out how to stay connected to the watch. Google, this is all your tech, there is no excuse for it not working seemlessly. Trash!
My watch is attached and getting notifications, but the app can’t find my watch so I can’t make any changes?! This happens periodically. So aggravating. Reboots, restarts, updates, nothing helps. And eventually, it will work again. But why does it have to be a struggle? This isn’t first gen smartwatch stuff any more.
I love my watch and thought it was working perfectly. Since this latest update, it seems as if there is a glitch in the screens response to touch. I am not able to access the bottom portion of my screen, it only allows for the slide up to see notifications. There also seems to be a delay in the screen going from the watch face to anyother app (Fit, Agenda, Contacts). The screen goes black for a couple of seconds and then the app appears. This has never happened before. I am not pleased.
I have mixed emotions. I love the looks of the software. But that’s about it. I hate that I don’t have continuous heart rate and sleep tracking. I don’t at all believe I’m being picky for wanting those things, because every competitor of wear os offers those things. The software is slow, stutters like no other and just does a lot of things that makes no sense. I think the Fitbit acquisition could really build on the little they have, so I hope it happens. Because I want to stay in the ecosystem.
Works great but it could be more useful to add a feature that the clock notifies when the Bluetooth is out-of-range just like some wireless headsets do. So it could be used when sometimes the clock is disconnected and you didn’t notice it or you left or forgot your cellphone somewhere and you’re not carrying it with you anymore so you go back to your car or house and get it back, for example . You get the idea. Keep with the good work.
I don’t think I would get another smart watch if it had to run this. It’s clunky and difficult to get it to do want you want, and options are very limited anyway, like the unchangeable screen timeout after only a few seconds. Even on a high end watch, checking texts and clumsily controlling music is about all it’s good for, and the Gear Fit 2 I got for free with a phone did this better years ago.
The Google assistant on the watch is messed up if you try to call or text with it. It keeps giving me the “can’t connect to phone” when I try to use them or another feature that doesn’t work such as the “play music” option. The saying “ok google” feature also doesn’t work even though I have it enabled. From what I’ve seen these problems have been going on for a while now and many other people are having the same issues.

I dig it overall, but I’d love to see a flip display & buttons settings. I have a Fossil smartwatch. I wear it on my left wrist, and the buttons are on the right. Which means when I lean on a desk it hits the crown button, and will cause it to reboot. I tried wearing it on my right hand, but I am not used to that. The watchbands however are interchangeable, so I could switch them to make the watch upside down on my left arm, and the buttons will point toward my elbow.
Overall, it’s a pretty user friendly app. I just wish I could add my photo for the watch face through Google Photos not just Facebook and Instagram. I also wish there were more customizable options for the watch face. I haven’t quite figured out how to talk on the phone from my watch, either, but I haven’t put a ton of time into it. Overall I feel it’s a decent smartwatch for the average user.
This app used to work fine, but now it fails to change my music via Google assistant. the other calls to Google assistant seem to work, it can send texts and get weather reports and start phone calls. When I ask to change music it either says Google can’t be reached or the phone isn’t connected. however I know that the phone is connected because I can skip out rewind tracks with the watch controls. Not being able to ask for a specific song pretty much ruins the experience. It worked for months.
Like alot of the other reviews, it worked great until the recent update. Now I can’t use my watch at all on Android. Works fine for apple though. Please get this fixed! I really have enjoyed it for the last 3 years. *Update- when it disconnected it saved Bluetooth data in my phone. I had to reset all of my Bluetooth setting to get it to work again. Still not a great option, but my watch works now. Hope this helps someone.
It’s boring. It synchronized just fine, but the available selections are disappointing. You can only choose from about 8 “tiles” that they provide and can’t add any that I actually want to use like Pandora or even texting! I can reply to a text but I can’t initiate one w/o using Google assistant which I don’t use. It doesn’t monitor sleep… Limited faces… I’m just really disappointed that I wasted my money on this Fossil watch. It looks great but this software is very bland and basic.
Updated: I ended up needing to factory reset my watch as well as my phone (had some crazy issues going on with my phone). Once I did that, this app worked perfectly. My watch has a longer battery life and is working better than ever. Plus, I can choose which calendar to sync to my watch. That’s a major plus. Apologies and big thanks to the developers.
When I installed on my on my watch, it ate up all my storage. Looking into the app on my phone it showed it loaded 3 times. I had to perform a factory reset, then I had all my storage back! Until 5 minutes later it said Wear OS needs to update, and then it duplicated itself. Thankfully it left half my storage untouched, but it did gobble up additional space. Can this be fixed? Performance wise it’s useful, and I like it though.
Super clunky, slow OS. It’s definitely what I’d call unusable. The one thing that really gets me is you can’t change the screen timeout time and basically everything takes longer to load than that. So when you click on something, the screen goes black and will sometimes go home so you have to start over again. My workouts never start tracking on google fit either. I basically have to start a workout 15-25 times for it to actually start. That takes about 5 minutes. 5 minutes to click start.
WearOS is terrible. It is super buggy. My fossil sport watch worked fine with my samsung s10 for a while then it dropped and wouldn’t recognize my phone. I hard reset both, and they wouldn’t pair, something about not being able to communicate with the watch. Finally got it to connect after a 5 or 6 tries then, after a few months, I have to repeat the entire process. I now have a pixel 4 and I am still having the same problem. If you are debating between Tizen, Apple, or a wearOS watch, well, I can’t speak to the others but wearOS is frustratingly terrible. Every time I look up answers on how to fix it, all I see are people having the same issues without any solutions. I just don’t get how they’re ok with this garbage. Even when it is working it is clunky and slow.
I have the MK Bradshaw and my watch no longer vibrates or rings when I receive notifications or phone calls. it’s connected but no notifications. I’ve done all the troubleshooting. Update: As previously stated, I have done all the troubleshooting. Checking the volume and settings was the first thing I did. It was working fine until this last update.
Update: After some tinkering I got the app to sync. Still a frustrating experience, and Google’s reply to point to the watch company is passing the blame. Also, factory resetting every time is a bad experience. I lost my apps and watch faces, again. The OS app could do way better! This is getting worse every time I try to get back into wearables. Now my watch wont even connect via the app. Ive even been able to manually connect via bluetooth… Which the phone recognizes but the app does not.
It worked at first but after a couple “upgrades” the app no longer opens. Have to set my Google watch manually and now only use it for time, when it’s accurate. If I knew I couldn’t utilize the features after a couple months of use, I wouldn’t have gotten it. It’s ridiculous the watch can’t sync to my phone without the app. Now when the watch dies I have to set it all over again. It seems nominal but after weeks of doing this, I no longer care to wear the Google watch. And I love watches 😤
I just got the Ticwatch e and the app is decent. For the most part I like the update but before the update my texts and WhatsApp messages were easier to read. I could scroll through the last several texts and see profile pictures too, and replying was simple. I do not like the new one. I can only see the last text. No profile pictures and the “quick responses” are annoying and way to easy to accidentally hit.. please is there anyway I can go back to the way they were before the update??
I installed this app after purchasing a Moto 360 sport 2nd generation watch and it, somehow, made it impossible to connect to the Google Playstore on my phone. In addition, all my Google apps stopped working properly. I was forced to factory reset my phone to get it to work properly, but now have a useless smartwatch that can’t be updated or connect to my phone. I looked everywhere to see if there was a way to fix this, but had no luck. If there is, please let me know. Great job Google.
Incredibly unstable. Twice now the phone app has forgotten my watch and reset as if it were a fresh install- taking me back through initial setup. Twice I’ve had to do a total factory reset on my watch just to get it to resync because there is literally no other way to do that- which means all of its apps, data, and settings are gone. And every time I’ve had to do the setup, the tutorial refuses to go away until I manually block it from notifications.
Step in the right direction, but still needs a lot of work. 1) Can’t find the screen on time for the life of me. I’ve been through all settings and have yet to find it. 2) The media controller app is pretty slick, but it gets annoying that it is its own app, that I have to swipe right to dismiss to do anything else like check notifications. Just make it it’s own Card. Settings > Clock Face > Media Controller > Notifications. I should be able to swipe up and down and get back to it easily. Maybe give an option to make it the default card if media is playing? 3) Battery life still leaves a lot to be desired. 4) Performance still needs a lot of work.
I would love to have the widget back. While I would prefer a step counter, at least allow the option for a heart points and move minutes widget. So far, I’m just not excited about the updates that have been pushed out over the last couple of months. The app design looks nice and clean and I think I see where the developers are going with it, but I feel they completely abandoned the uses of the original user base (but I’m sure they know how their user engaged with the app) in this rework.
Overall good expeience for setting up and using watches. A couple of improvements would be nice… 1) Ability to customize watch face (not just select it) within the phone app (doing on the watch can be cumbersome); 2) Faster changing between devices. I have 2 watches and its a 4 step process to change. Disconnect current, select new, connect new. Seems there could be a smoother/easier way to switch watches. Edit: -1star. Having to reset watch when switching phones is quite painful.
>>Update (05/12/20). Finally worked and surprisingly I didn’t do anything different, but worked. Only thing I’d recommend is turn off all other Bluetooth devices around the phone. << App failed and continuing to fail. Won't connect with the watch at all. It used connect a few weeks ago but not after recent updates. Reset the watch and now it stuck at the very first step. Can y'all do a thorough review of the update before releasing it? Appreciate it.
With Google play music now gone, I can’t load music onto my watch to listen on a run. How is this possible? Literally the reason I bought this watch was to go on a run with my music and leave my phone at home. This is now impossible. Thanks. Summary: music CANNOT be loaded onto watch anymore due to app support being removed. The internal storage is now useless to me.
Wear OS has been offensively terrible for the past 2+ years, and even with the rollout of Wear OS 3, and the supposed regained attention to the platform, the best I’ve seen is refreshed visuals. For far too long, Wear OS has been plagued by bugs and issues, and Google seems intent on putting focus elsewhere. Assistant hasn’t been able to send texts nor make calls for over a year (maybe over 2 at this point, and 3 for calls), and if you ask me, that’s a tad integral to a smartwatch.
It’s not bad but needs work. There are hardly any tiles and the scroll function with the crown works in some areas but not others (very inconsistent). Also I have to periodically reset the watch in order to have notifications from the messager app make the watch vibrate. That’s a pain as the point of getting the watch was for notifications when my phone isnt on me. There are times where I didnt even see messages because the vibration never happened. Need to work on bugs google.
I absolutely hate the 2.1 update. The notification font size has been decreased and multiple notifications are seen at once, making it incredibly hard to see what the notification is about. And, of course, there’s no way to change this behavior. Google, once again, couldn’t leave something alone and had to fix something that wasn’t broken…
Google please fix the NIXON Mission watchface. Ever since the new update. you can not change the colors or the subdials they are just blank. it shows in settings the colors are changed, but they are not. I know you are aware of this issue. I would like to just know a possible fix timeline. So far the new update is not as good as the older version.
Worked perfectly until the newest 2.1 update in September. Now the UI is over complicated and cluttered particularly with the new notification feed which I find awful to use compared to the way it was. I would really like to see an option to have individualized full-screen notifications back. The new 2.1 notifications are just simply too hard to read.
