Hi All, I have the samsung galaxy gear 2 for a week now and everything was working perfectly until this morning. The wake up gesture doesnt work at all anymore even though the power button still wakes up the device.

I have tried a factory reset to no avail.

Your help will be highly appreciated.

Maybe try turning it off in Gear Manager, reboot the phone and the watch, and turn it on again?

Wake-up Gesture not working
I had the same thing happen to me this morning. Funny thing is that when I have it connected to power with the charging unit then the wake-up gesture works again. Seems like a bug to me. I have tried all manner of restarting, powering down, and toggling the feature but nothing helps. Has anybody else seen this problem?

Better yet anyone know how to fix it?

Hi, after much fiddling and wrist swinging, it fixed itself!

I reset the gear to factory settings, disconnected the gear from phone,disabled the wake up gesture, re-enabled wake up gesture on gear manager AND on watch and then re-connected everything.

Wow the gear is crap without the wake up gesture.

But its awesome when it works.

Ok, I tried to follow this recipe but once I disconnect the gear 2 from the phone I am not able to get to setting in Gear Manager to re-enable on gear manager AND watch as you recommend. Can you explain what you did once you have the gear disconnected from the phone so I can follow your steps exactly? Wrist swinging alone is not doing the trick. Thanks in advance.

I figured out what was wrong in my case. I had installed the sleep app within in the S Health app. I left it on in sleep mode mistakenly which shuts off the wake up gesture. Then I uninstalled it while it was running and it did not seem to disable entirely. Finally I had given up on ever having a wakeup gesture and reinstalled the sleep app and fiddled with it and the wake up gesture was restored. Hope this helps someone in who has this frustrating problem.

My Gear 2's wake up gesture doesnt work too. What makes it doesnt work makes my head gearing up a bit. I just left it in the bathroom, NO CONTACT with water or liquid, then it all happened. I thought it was nothing so I restarted the watch. Nothing happened. Re installed the firmware and.. NOTHING. Stupid! I need help.

-NOTE: It does work when connected to PC or charging!! x_x -

Now It Works
I had the same problem. Everything worked great for the past month, including the wake up gesture, until two days ago when it stopped working. I looked on line and figured I'd try - Settings - Gear Manager- etc - except that when I opened up settings there was no "Gear Manager". I finally gave up and did the following: Turned off the bluetooth connection on my Samsung phone (which disconnected the connection between the Gear and the Samsung S4). Then I went to - Settings - Reset Gear - and ran thru the process of resetting the Gear to factory settings. Then I reconnected the bluetooth connection and re-installed the connection between the Gear and the Samsung S4 - BUT - I did not Restore. Uncheck the RESTORE box and continue. The phone lets you pick from all of the apps that were previously on the phone and gets everything running like it used to - EXCEPT that any data or files you had on you Gear are gone. BUT the wake up gesture is back and working fine and I can recreate anything I might have lost.

Try it. It worked for me. Good luck.
