Android wear problem after update

Hi, I have a smartwatch 3. It is worked fine with android wear and my Samsung s5 for 11 months but following an update to both there appears to be a compatability issue and if the app is installed the WiFi on my phone just keeps turning on and off which means I have full battery drain on the phone in just over an hour. ..has anyone else had this?

My only solution so far has been to uninstal the app, without this I appear to be unable to use any features on the watch as to discover the source of the problem I did master resets on the watch and phone. Anyone got any ideas what I can do?

Re: Android wear problem after update

I've since discovered that disabling of WiFi-Scanning in "Location -> High Accuracy -> WiFi Scanning" solves the issue immediately, albiet it is a temporary fix.   Further investigation has identified that the problem also lies with a compatability issue between android wear and google play services (also updated around the same time).

Hi,

Since Adroid Wear update  Version 2.0.0...... about a month ago there have been heaps of complaints.

 

you may also want to look at this forum

and also the low rated reviews in Play store on the Android Wear app. since October
