Forcing A Sync Between Garmin & An Android Phone — When ALL Else Fails.
This is for ALL of you who have trouble getting
Garmin watches, e.g., Vivoactive or Vivofit, to Sync.
This is ONLY for Android phones & tablets.
(It might work with Apple but I have never owned an iPhone or iPad.)
Click to ENLARGE images.
Follow these steps.
Go to ‘SETTINGS‘ and click on ‘Apps & Notifications‘
Select ‘ALL apps’.
Go to the 3 Vertical Dots (menu/option) icon (Ξ) on the TOP RIGHT and click on that.
Click ‘Show System’ (Apps).
Scroll down to ‘Bluetooth Share’.
Click on ‘Force stop’.
Do NOT panic. Do not fear. It will automatically restart after the stop.
Get out of ‘Apps & Notification’.
This really should work.
