My New Garmin Vivoactive 3 Paired With My Android 7.0 Tablet FIRST Time — No Issues!
Though they shipped this brand new replacement on Tuesday, I only got it today (Saturday) because UPS is so, so pathetic.
Last time it took me 22-attempts over 4-hours.
This time — BANG. First go. Took seconds. I could NOT believe it.
4 things changed.
- The Vivoactive 3 has yet another FIRMWARE update. We are now at 2.70. NOT 2.60 or 2.50.
- There was a new version of Garmin Connect Mobile (for Android) yesterday, i.e., December 8, 2017. The Android version is at 4.1.11.
- I restarted the Android tablet prior to attempting the pairing.
- I did a FORCE STOP on Bluetooth, on the tablet, just prior to the pairing.
It was probably the new software that made the difference. I had shared my experience and screen shots with Garmin.
But, it is easy enough to do the other two steps as well.
Hope this helps.
