Hi,
Has someone been abled to use a wear os smartwatch with the phone?
I tried to pair an oppo smartwatch (wear os 2) and the wear os app stays blocked on the launch screen, so I'm unable to pair it.
I also tried with a samsung watch 4 (wear os 3) and the galaxy wearable app launches but when trying to pair, I receive an error mesage saying the watch is not compatible with the phone...
So, for now, no smartwatch for me working with the phone.
If someone has been able to make things work, let me know.

Have a nice day.

Garmin Fenix 6 works a treat so assume the rest of Garmin is ok
Samsung Watch 4 Classic - There is a workaround that i found (can't remember where!) where you install Wear OS first and pair the watch through that then install Samsung Wear etc. (do some googleling :)) --- However i still had issues with disconnects and notifications so not perfect

I had the same issue with a LG Watch R: downloading Wear OS from the "normal" Playstore, when opening Wear OS I've got a stuck white screen. But I managed to fix it:
- Download Wear OS from OPPO App store (let's call it Chinese Wear OS) and install it but don't run it.
- Download Wear OS from Playstore (let's call it Internation Wear OS) and install it and run it.
After this, I was able to start Wear OS and pair my phone with my watch.
Don't forget to allow both Wear OS (chinese and international) to run on background and pin the international version only.
Never open the "Chinese" Wear OS; it will unpair your watch and you will need to uninstall everything and start all over again.
Also, allow all notifications.

Thanks for your answers.
Well, I'm not going to buy a new watch...
For the Samsung watch, as I'm not able to launch and use the wear os app, I guess the trick will not work.
For now, I've switched to a Fitbit which seems to work.

How did you do? If you want to share...
You just have to reintialize the watch and pair it with galaxy wear and the galaxy wear module for notification. You can restore via samsung cloud via internet and the watch is ok. I have The first galaxy Watch with 4G. I am on tizen and i see your problem is wear os related isn't it?

I see, yes it's wear os related, not Tizen.
Thanks.

Heya,
A question for people here, I have an Oppo Watch connected to my Oppo Find N - I managed to get it working using the chinese version of WearOS along with the normal version.

Everything is working fine but my Google Pay on the watch constantly crashes or is in a setup loop on the watch, anyone else have this problem? If so any workaround to fix it? (FYI Google Pay working fine on the Find N)

Found a solution for anyone that is using Samsung's Galaxy 4 Wear OS watches. You have to install the following apps from Playstore less No.4:

1. Samsung Gear (Samsung wearable)
2. Samsung Watch4 plugin
3. Samsung Health (SHealth)
4. Chinese version Wear OS (From appmarket)

Once the above are installed. Reset or reinitialize your watch, wait for the "Welcome" intro to start. Open up SHealth app -> click on 3 dot on the top right -> settings -> accessories -> Select Galaxy Watch4 or Watch4 Classic to pair up. Follow the setup accordingly. It's optional to sign in to SHealth for your watch btw. Everything will work flawlessly after that.

After you're done with the setup, close all apps via recent and you can launch Samsung Gear as per normal. If you're experiencing intermittent disconnectivity, launch Samsung Gear and lock the app in recents. Do not kill the app. I have not experienced any battery drain from it so far.

DO NOT uninstall the chinese version of the Wear OS under any circumstances. It will disconnect your watch and you won't be able to pair it back. Which means you have to unpair via SHealth, reset your watch and go through the entire setup again.

Hope this helps someone.

Thank you so much for this, works a treat.

Been hanging to be able to get my Classic4 running on the N.

Only downside is I cant get Google Pay to add a payment card.

Question can you use Samsung Pay on Galaxy Watch 4 with Oppo Find N? - Trying to find a wearOS watch which can make NFC payments which can connect to the Oppo Find N.

With this method I get into the app exactly once. After that I can only get to this screen. 😕
