XZ Premiun & Oreo & Gear S3 doesn´t work

After the oreo update my gear cant get a connection to my xz.

Reinstallation of the Gear an new installation of the APP´s doesn´t help.

The app won´t built up a new connection to the gear. But the App shows the old entrie of the Gear.

 

Works the gear anywhere?

There seems to be reports of Android Oreo and Gear S3

yes, the answer is not really usefull.
They don´t support Oreo at the moment.

 

Great....

 

My mistake, next time i will wait with the update.
Too many bug and other things. (XPZ hangs up and need hard power out/on; Playstoreinstallation very slow,...)

so i tried to reinstall Oreo. Allwas the same.

 

I'm too stupid for that. I used to take forever until my mobile phone was everything the way I wanted it to be.

My gear S3 is working fine after the upgrade. Still connected without a problem.

 

What problem exactly do you have?

Doesn't it connect at all? Or do some notifications not work?

Re: XZ Premiun & Oreo & Gear S3 doesn´t work

What issues are you having? I have the S3 frontier with its own line and after getting the update on my xz premium I haven't seen or noticed any connection issues. I have it connected via Bluetooth most of the time but It did connect remotely to my phone today so there were no issues.
