When e.g. set to swipe unlock.

It works as it should.

Sure is a strange issue, do a factory reset on both devices?

And it gets even stranger, because all of a sudden, it works! Not sure what I did, I was playing with the lock screen settings again and one of the things I tried was pattern locking without the Gear Fit auto lock on. When I switched the auto lock back on, it was working again.
So even though I have zero idea what helped I am glad it works and I thank you for your support.

Thank you and one more thought, I have received an S Health update (and for some underlying apps as well). That might have to do something with the issue, although it is not really probable.

I had the same "issue" - remember to either wait for autolock or provoke a screen lock. The S5 is not locking before the timer tells it to. It worked for me
