Many users of the watch have taken social media platforms to reveal that their watch 4 is not connecting with their phones. Even after trying to re-pair several times, there’s no success as none of the devices recognize each other. Customers are saying that when clicking on ‘add’, it asks to pair the watch like it is pairing to a new phone.

The reason behind the issue is not clear yet. Some users say that the issue has occurred suddenly, whereas, some report that this issue is taking place after installing the Google Assistant feature on their watches.

They believe that they’ve had to perform a hard reset on their watches to get through the problem, which is really scary for those without a backup to load (via Android Police).

Further, Wear OS and Android Wear watches haven’t provided the fastest experience in the past while using Google Assistant. And, it’s disappointing to hear about performance issues affecting the service here on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 series.

Why we’re saying Watch 4 Classic ‘still’ unbeatable:

The Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro come with a whole new sapphire crystal display, Samsung’s improved BioActive Sensor, and Exynos W920 chipset with 1.5 GB RAM. Since the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 are just one year old, Samsung is offering better trade-in deals while upgrading to the Watch 5 or 5 Pro.

For a year, the Galaxy Watch 5 will remain the latest smartwatch offered by Samsung, but it brings the same operating system as the Galaxy Watch 4, which is a year old now. The Watch 4 also debuted the first generation BioActive sensor, which consists of three chips in a small package.

Just like the Galaxy Watch 5 series, their predecessors pack lots of the same specifications such as the Exynos W920 chipset, 1.5 GB RAM, and 16GB of storage in addition to the battery capacity, except for the iconic physical rotating bezel, which makes Watch 4 Classic – unforgettable.
