SW 3 won’t connect to iPhone 8plus

The watch worked on my iphone 7plus with iOS 10.  When I got my iPhone 8plus with iOS 11 my SW3 will not connect. I have tried everything. Reset my phone, reset watch. Deleted android wear and reinstalled it. Still doesn’t work. Very upset, love the watch.  Any suggestions please would be very appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Re: SW 3 won’t connect to iPhone 8plus

Hi @Tykobird10, I'm sorry to hear about this. Slightly frowning Face


I'm afraid that Google isn't listing the SmartWatch 3 as one of the iOS compatible Android Wear devices on the Android Wear website. Because of this I'm sorry to say that we can't guarantee that it will be compatible with the iPhone 8 Plus and iOS 11.


I'm sorry for the inconvenience this causes you.
