Make sure that you sync your watch with another device that isn’t bugged with this issue and then only proceed with the downloading and installation of the update. 

  • Upgraded from a Charge 3 to a Charge 5 when my Charge 3 stopped syncing last month, figured it had died. Got the new Charge 5 and couldn’t get it to pair with my phone. Tried all the stuff they tell you to do when troubleshooting these things, no luck. Went though support (they are absolutely clueless btw). Figured it was defective, so returned it for a replacement. THEN I spotted a thread on Reddit about others having issues too. Anyway, Just went through the whole process of pairing my replacement Charge 5 with a different phone and updating the firmware to 20001.188.58. Guess what, it still won’t pair with by Galaxy Flip 4! ARG!!!!!
