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.
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.
