    Default S5 Problems with Gear Manager..

    I have a SIM-free S5, and just got the Gear 2 Neo.

    I have been able to successfully pair the devices and the Neo appears to be working OK.
    However, when I use Gear Manager on the S5 I can't get into most of the detail screens.
    For example, if I click on Notifications, it shows me the next screen for about a second, then flashes back to the first screen.
    I am getting text message notifications on the Neo.

    I have tried resetting the Neo and starting from scratch (twice), uninstalling Gear Manager each time but this has not cured the problem.
    I have applied all updates to Android and Samsung apps.

    Anyone else had this problem and know how to fix it?

    Thanks

    You are not alone with this problem. I haven't found a fix either

    Actually, this problem now seems to have resolved itself. I've applied system software and app updates as they became available and a few days ago I was able to use the Gear Manager app without any problems.

    However, I have an app for a UK bank which seems to have a similar problem (briefly flashes through a passcode input screen) and this still doesn't work after the recent updates.

    I've found the fix. I backed up my S5 using Kies. I did a factory re-install...wiping out everything. Then I installed the Gear 2 Manager and paired / sync'd the Gear 2 phone...worked flawlessly! They I re-installed all the apps. And it still works perfectly.
