Samsung & Bluetooth low-energy profile devices

Samsung smartphones with Android 10 and and above appear to experience Bluetooth stack-corruption issues when interacting with BLE-profile devices. One workaround is stop the Skywatch BL app then manually forget the Skywatch and re-start the app. In bad cases of stack-corruption the previous steps should be followed by a complete re-start of the smartphone. This is a known problem which is discussed online in many BLE-device developer forums but, to-date, the manufacturer has not provided a software patch to correct the issue. Skywatch BL products are fully-compliant BLE devices, so in the case you experience issues when using one of the above devices with our products please contact Samsung directly.
