    No...when I changed my watch settings it corrected my problem. My phone and watch work fine now
    What watch settings did you change and what watch do you have?

    I have a Gear 3 watch. I can answer calls on the phone or watch when connected via bluetooth but if I make a call with my phone with the watch connected I cannot hear the person on the other end (I don't think they can hear me either)

    So before making a call I need to remember to turn off bluetooth on my phone to disconnect the watch.

    I have a Ticwatch S I'm reviewing. I left it at work. I'll get back to you on the setting.

    2015 BMW M4 -- LOTS of problems. Very spotty connection. Can't direct connect. BT will have delays accessing music.
    Same experience with a 2014 BMW X3. Note 8 performs flawlessly in the same vehicle.

    Thank you! A very good description of the problem. I finally turned off phone call notifications all together. I do get a missed call or voicemail notification.

    This is irritating. I would like to get an incoming call alert and vibrate but I really don't want to answer it from the watch.

    I look forward to this being fixed.
    I can confirm this problem on my wife's new Pixel 2 XL (Black and White, December build) but I've not experienced it on my November build Just Black Pixel 2 XL.

    I have the Pixel 2 and there's most definitely a bluetooth issue with my 2016 Toyota Corolla! I've noticed it's most repeatable if the phone is in Battery Saver mode. The Bluetooth connection just goes in a death spiral of connecting and disconnecting. I had no issues with 3 other phones used in this car (Sony Xperia XZ and XA1, as well as Moto Z).

    So the only bt issue I still have is that I can't use the handsfree in my car. I have no problem automatically connecting and streaming music but it won't connect for phone. After about 30sec a error message pops up on the head unit saying "automatic connection failed" and anytime I try to make or answer a call it just can't get through my car. Again, no streaming issues, even after that failure message.

    Updating my own situation with MY 2014 BMW X3...

    So on a whim I decided to go into developer options and changed the Bluetooth AVRCP from the default of 1.4 to 1.6 and so far the connection has been vastly improved. As a bonus, I'm now getting more music info displayed too.

    To update my situation as well on my 2015 STi, I had to disable phone calls on my S2 watch and then everything worked fine on my car. Makes no sense as I had NO issues having both my watch and car enabled for calls on my S7Edge.

    Samsung is doing some magic that allows multiple Bluetooth connections for similar connection types, they are the only manufacturer to do so.

    Haven't had any issues yet with mine. I paired it with my car and my Bluetooth headset and both work fine no issues. Hopefully it stays that way.

    Your profile says your devices are:
    Moto X Pure Edition, Galaxy S2 HD LTE

    I'll bet there's been a change?

    Did you mean WH1000XM2? I was looking at the H900N because I just can't make the ~$130 jump for the upgrade, and they seemed pretty similar in features.

    Yes. WH1000XM2. Highly accurate and the noise cancellation is done by advanced wizard magic.

    Certainly appreciate all the feedback, but I am not having connectivity issues to devices, I can still play music via Bluetooth in my car.

    This is specific to phone calls over Bluetooth.

    I am having the same problems, exactly. The bluetooth pairing works fine, but the phone over bluetooth is so bad as to be unusable. I have three bluetooth phone devices (my 2011 Subaru, a Bragi Dash, and an AKG headset) and all have echoes and distortion when making phone calls.

    The bluetooth music is great, super clear, but the phone calls are bad.

    I am becoming increasingly frustrated with the Blue Tooth on my Pixel 2. I was an iPhone Loyalist and switched to the Android Pixel 2. Love the phone itself, but blue tooth is a major problem. I have unpaired my car and the paired again and the same with headphones. I can receive calls and listen to internet radio, but cannot listen to music saved to my phone or thru my car. So it is a strange issue to have. Any input is greatly appreciated.

    I got my pixel 2 a couple of weeks ago, and I've also had trouble connecting to my car bluetooth. My bluetooth headphones (bose soundsport wireless) work fine, my watch (misfit vapor) is stable as well, but trying to connect it to play music in my 2012 Ford Focus is spotty at best, and occasionally just refuses to connect. Today I think I got it connected, but it wouldn't play anything, when 30 minutes earlier it was working fine.
