Problems with gps and other permissions

[ Edited ]

Hello everyone. I have recently bought the smartwath 3 and I am not able to use local gps. If I open maps app in the wath I get a message that asks me permissions to use gps, when I click in the confirmation icon a popup apears saying "screen superposition" and the option to "open settings". when I click in the option nothing happens, the app opens with the map but no localozation.

 

I have tried to give permissions of gps to maps app in the permissionsection in settings of the watch, but the permission ins disabled and won´t change...

 

Any solution?, will I have to do something in the phone?.

 

Best regards and thank you in advance

That's rather odd, what if you factory reset the SW3 > sync it > try again.

On your phone 

 

uninstall android wear > restart the phone > reinstall android wear > check again, make sure that you check the app permissions

I have found the solution. it was the app wear mini launcher that was preventing to give permissions, I had to uninstall it and give the rights and then installing it again.

 

Best regards and thank you very much for your help.
