quick question, do i need to disable the blue tooth connection between my watch and my phone before i get started? or is that just disabling the debug through blue tooth?
i’ve had few issues connecting my watch to wfs but it does sometimes get a bit wonky where it’ll disconnect in the middle of running or disconnect once it’s finished.

Hi, just disabled bluetooth connection or put watch on charger.

thanks. i knew putting the watch on the charger helped. i did not know i had to disable the bluetooth though.

Hi All - I originally connected watch nicely. Now, days later, it pushes to watch but 'Run on Device" icon just spins forever… Any ideas?

Could you please try to restart your watch and the computer? If the issue remains you can create a support request with the WFS version, watch software version and an image of the issue.
