I recently purchased the second Garmin fenix watch. I have a Garmin fenix 3 which I hardly connected it to the phone, when I bought the phone last year. Today, I got a new watch, Garmin fenix 5x Plus. I had troubles connecting it to the phone. I read all the methods of connection, I applied the most reasonable ones, without success. I even disconnected my fenix 3 from the phone, I deleted it from BT history/cache. Now, I am not able to connect either of them. The watches show a 6 digits pairing PIN. The phone is not able to get pass the connection options (see picture). Regardless of what I choose or not, it simply doesn't connect with the watches. All other devices can connect without a problem. With the laptop was easy, I just clicked OK on both of them, to confirm that is the same PIN. I am seriously thinking to jump.back to Samsung if ASUS cannot fix this connectivity issue. It seems that I am not the only one complaining about BT connectivity.
