I started having several bluetooth issues when i updated to OREO and i couldnt figure out was just went wrong.

While i was trying several things i stumbled upon an option on Smarthings which is called "Visible to Devices" and allows other devices to find your phone using BT LE scanning which for an unknown reason was disabled.

Open Smarthings -> tap to the three dots in the upper right corner -> Settings --> Visible to devices -> Turn it on.

If you guys keep having problems , make sure to check if this option is enabled because for me it wasnt. Who knows , it may prove helpfull to you aswell!

Genius!
This fixed the annoying problem I was having with my Samsung watch disconnecting from my phone and causing the Plugin App to keep crashing. Fantastic advice. Thanks you.
