Runner 3: Bunch of problems since last update (1.7.53)
Since last updating the watch I began noticing various issues: heart rate monitor just never worked on a few runs and activities; faulty connectivity with headphones; increase in time it took for phone to recognize device and begin syncing.
Then the real trouble began, which has ultimately deemed to watch useless. It will simply not sync with Sports app on iOS. First the app would take forever to pickup watch signal when watch was "woken up," then it began giving me "connection issues" messages on the app as well as on Sports connect on Mac-- never syncing any info. Eventually it did sync with the OS Mac app but then never logged my last activities, or automatically took me to the 'mysports' and 'strava' websites like it usually does post-sync .
I then did the "forget device" thing on the phone, but then when I tried to pair the devices again the watch refused to show me any PIN and I was never able to pair.
So I erased and reinstalled the apps, both on the iPhone and Mac, then did a factory reset on the watch.
Now the watch is completely reset. Watch and both apps completely up-to-date. When connected to the computer/OS Mac app, it will go through the usual "preparing, syncing, tidying up" sequence and ultimately leave me at "Ready to Go, Charging," as it has always done. Seems like everything is ok.
However, on the iPhone iOS app: with watch woken up and everything as it should be (bluetooth turned on...etc), iOS app will simply never find it when searching for new device, rather proceed to ask me if software is up to date...
On watch: If I go to Settings > Phone > Pair New > Start The App: It quickly (for a split second) switches to the 'Enter PIN' screen but then takes me back to the main Settings screen.
I don't know what else to do. Would hate to keep using the watch with the intention of logging-in my training, only to have them disappear like they've done so in the past couple of days. HELP! Please and thank you
