I have tried everything. I have Windows 10, Samsung A71 and Samsung Watch 4. I have downloaded Watch Face Studio and tried both Bluetooth and Wifi ways to connect. Is there a step by step other than the general instructions that clearly are not working for me. I keep getting an SPP error. I haven’t found a solution yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Your watch and computer need to be connected to the same WiFi network. Unplug or turn off the Ethernet adaptor if you have your computer connected by Ethernet
You cannot have Firewalls or VPN enabled.
Enable developer options on your watch, and within those options, enable ADB debugging, and select debug over WiFi(it may take time to connect it took me about a minute before it shows the connection).
Allow the permissions as the watch requests them.
Go to Connections and write down the IP address your router assigns to your watch.
add that when you run on device in the + dialog.
With WFS 1.0.12 there is a bug it will connect (you know because a debugging permission is opened on the watch) but you have to close WFS and restart it because it says no devices found.
After the restart run on device should work it will spin quite a while then say launch completed.
If it doesn’t
Using File manager copy the address where you installed adb by default
(copy the address as text from file manger using right click on the address bar)
Open a command prompt
navigate to the folder address
adb connect 192.168.x.x:5555 (where 192.168.x.x is your watch’s IP address).
It may take a minute to connect or give a failure response
If you get a rejected error or something check your watch debugger settings.
Try in developer options to revoked permissions and force new acceptance. do the connect again.
select “run on device” within Watch Face Studio, your watch should show up.
If it connects but will not run on device create a new keystore in a new keystore folder

Omgosh… thank you!! This worked after I actually go the Watch Face Studio vs Galaxy Watch Studio!!! I didn’t even realize at first there was a difference. Oooof! Thank you so much!
