At first it was amazing, but after a couple updates I can't seem to change the photos in the "photos" version of the watch face. Every time I try to edit them, the app crashes. The best thing I could do was remove the photo through the watch itself, but nothing else. I don't get what happened for this to start but I would like it if it could be fixed. Weirdly enough, there is another photos like watch face and it works completely fine.

They removed the ability to manually take a backup for the Watch 5! The SmartSwitch app is now required, and it saves to your phone by default instead of the cloud! I've had everything setup as directed in the apps for 12 hours, and no backup has been taken. It's a good practice to take a backup before installing an update, but that's not possible now. Please put this option back into the app.

I cannot get to the functional aspect of the app. It says constantly that it wants to upgrade the software however it keeps giving an error message to either close the app or contact us. I can't turn on the ambient sound option for my Galaxy x icon which are my favorite earbuds. I've bought about eight pairs of these and I'm frustrated that I cannot use any of the options or even get to the settings in order to change anything and it really upsets me that I can't use the ambient sound. Fix this.
