What watch do you have? If it is Active2 or Watch3 (Tizen 5.5) you can’t connect via BT until there is a new firmware update. If it is an older Tizen version it should work fine.
Make sure you manually enter the IP address into the search. If you let GWS do the search it may start at an IP address higher than your watch is and never find it.
Some routers will switch IP addresses for a device always check that if it doesn’t connect quickly after you connected successfully. If you have seen this happen constantly then it may be your issue.
I’ve never had this issue but I’ve heard that some people have to turn off BT and not just have WiFi always on.
