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

Make your Android to unlock the Gear Fit watch

I would like to ask you for a piece of advice. One of the nice features of S5 + Gear Fit is the auto-lock - if the Gear Fit is detected within the range, the phone only swipe-locks itself. If the Gear Fit is disconnected, the lock switches itself to pattern lock. However, this is how it worked for the first day only
Now, if I choose the Auto-lock feature (both Gear Fit Manager and S5 Settings), there is no lock-screen. The phone simply stays unlocked no matter how long the screen has been switched off, if I turned it off manually or it has dimmed by itself. The presence of the Gear Fit makes no difference, the phone does not get locked even if the Bluetooth is off (and thus no Gear Fit could be detected).

My question is - is this a (known) bug or did I override the lock settings somehow by accident? Thanks in forward for your help.

I had the same problem (Glaxy S5 with Abdorid 5). Now it works.
What I've don:
Go to: Android Settings > Security > Smart Lock > Trusted Devices > Add trusted device > Bluetooth > Select your Gear Fit

Let us know if it works for you.

Good luck!
Eduardo
