Bluetooth and Garmin 5

Fri May 25, 2018 8:34 am

Hi, I bought S8. I have 2 queries:
1) bluetooth works with other accessories ok, just with the Garmin Fenix 5 Watch I can not keep the connection (watch is ok, Iphone SE worked normally)
2) I have a problem with battery life. I'm recharging 100%, but the phone even keeps the data in the background for up to 6 hours

some ideas, pls?

For the bluetooth issue, you can try this fix made for the bv8000 pro:

0) Consider updating your device to the latest firmware and performing a factory reset after that

1) Go to "Settings" -> "Background task clear"  and whitelist all your 3rd party apps wich need bluetooth to transfer data (i.e. samsung gear app, veryfit app and so on..). By doing that, they will be allowed to run in background even if the smartphone is in deep sleep state.

2) Go to "Settings" -> "Battery" -> "3 dots" in the upper right corner -> "Battery optimization" -> select "All apps" from the dropdown menu  and disable battery optimization for every bluetooth service app, as
- Bluetooth MIDI service
- BT Tool
- Bluetooth sharing

and for every app needing to use bluetooth to transmit data, as
- Phone
- Phone services
- Call management
- Phone/Messaging storage
- your 3rd party music player
- other telephone dialer apps
- fitness band apps and so on

3) Only if the previous steps doesn't solve your issue, also
- Go to "Settings" -> "Battery" and disable "Standby intelligent power saving"
- Go to "Settings" -> "Duraspeed" and and disable it.

4) Only if, again, the previous steps still don't solve your issue, alsogo to "Settings" -> "Battery" and set your device into "High performance mode"

Please follow these steps carefully and report back if your bluetooth issue gets solved  ;)

Oh, and consider also, as user Neville wrote, that Fenix 5 is older tech and may have compatibility issues with Android 7 and 8 onwards (Google introduced new security protocols in 7x after discovering older connections could be used to hack into phones…)
