I bought it today, and is not working for me.

I installed the Phone Remote Companion app into my LG G4 (from google play store)

But it still says there is no connection to my phone.

Any thing more to do into the phone ?

Because i paid 1,8€ and cannot use it.

And one more thing, when i use this whatch face then Gear Fit2 Plugin uses GPS all the time...

For me works excellence but I have Samsung S3.
Maybe try to disable and enable Bluetooth for phone and watch or turn off your watch for few seconds.
It helped me in case others apps.

This watch face doesn't use GPS. It only shows statuses for Wifi, Bluetooth and GPS. You should go settings/connection
and turn off all connections, they eat your battery.

I changed phone rom.
I have bad news from this watch face developer.
I received this email:

How is possible to use watchface to make photo? I updated the watchface and the phone software, but it still only shows camera image.

We have created last version which allows to make photo by watch and fixed a few things.
But we can't upload it on Samsung Store because Samsung locked
uploading watch faces created by Web API SDK - it means that only watch faces
designed by Gear Watch Designer are eligible to upload to the store.

I don't understand this decision and many developers too. Probably Samsung doesn't want to
have more complex watch faces for Gear Fit 2 expect simple watch faces created by simple editor like
Gear Watch Designer. It is very bad news for user like you and others. Probably
there will not good apps/watch faces for Gear Fit 2 in the Samsung store.

I hope Samsung change its mine and allows to upload apps/watch faces created by
standard developing tools (Web API SDK) otherwise customers will have thousand simple
and often ugly watch faces on Samsung store and none well-designed applications.

Summary: for now none developer can upgrade existed watch faces or upload the new one.

Is it possible? Very bad news for my Gear Fit 2. I am going to ask Samsung about that.
If that's true, my Fit2 is going to be piece of junk because I don't want a million watch faces
and none application.
