    I just got a Nexus 6p and the it's just not picking up the Gear. I select "connect to gear" within the Samsung Gear app but it tells me none found, and to do a factory reset on my Gear... which I don't want to/should have to do. It was working fine with my old phone. Any ideas?

    You sure your bluetooth connection is good? If your Gear has previously been connected to a phone, did you use More/Connect to New in Gear Manager? Can the Gear go online standalone? If not, might be a problem there. Otherwise, I'd try to reset/reinstall Gear Manager. Not familiar with the Nexus so not sure how apps are treated there.

    Yes the connection is fine. What's this about More/Connect to New? Where is that?

    As my post said, it's in Gear Manager. You are using Gear Manager to connect, right? If you look in the upper right corner, you'll see the More icon.

    That's the problem as soon as I open gear manager my only option is "connect to gear" which then proceeds to fail miserably

    I believe you have to at least soft reset your watch in order to connect to a new phone.

    You don't mention which gear you are trying to connect. Are you sure it is compatible with a non samsung phone?

    I resorted to doing the soft reset... now it connects flawlessly.
