Default How to use bluetooth tethering?

As I have unlimited 4G tethering on my contract I want to get my smartwatch to be able to use bluetooth, every guide I have read on the net just says turn on bluetooth tethering option on the phone and then bam.... I've done this but my TS just doesn't find my phone to connect to it... They are both set to being visible... am I missing something else I need to do lol?? Please please dont tell me you can only BT tether on BT4 lol.... ;(

My watch is still on custom but as far as I know BT tethering doesn't work on stock ROM.

If you have 1/8 2100 version you have to root it, install recovery, flash Loki ROM and Cyril bluetooth companion app.

That should work...

TS from the box is pile of plastic and you can't do almost anything without help of great guys who are working hars to fix all that inexcusable mistakes by Omate...

You will need to WiFi tether. That works both ways. I don't think Bluetooth tethering works.
