(7/28/22) The latest update didn't 'fix' anything... it just broke more. Watch no longer connects to my phone despite numerous troubleshooting tips. 😬 (8/2/22) I ended up trying to back up data, which prompted Bluetooth connection via androids settings. Once that happened, the app was able to find the device! I was preparing to completely wipe and reset, but thankfully not needed!

7/11/22 Latest update killed this watch. Steps no longer sync properly to the Samsung Health app. I'm also no longer receiving notifications. When I try to go to Notifications in the app to make sure they're on, the page just spins and will never open. While watch appears to be connected to my phone, I can also no longer send texts or make calls from it. Please fix this!! Edit 8/3/22 Not sure what the 7/26 update 'fixed' since my Galaxy 3 is still not functional. Very expensive junk now.

I like the app, one thing I'd REALLY love to see is a volume control in the app, so if my earbuds sensor stopped working, I can still control the volume. My right earbud sensor went out, it's my backup pair of earbuds, so it's not a huge issue because I rarely use them. But when I do, it's just the default volume, which is very quiet in my working conditions. But otherwise, the app is fine and does what I need/want it to do. Like telling me notification names. Please add a vol slide for the buds
