Reviews From google play store

This plugin update seems to correspond to the new firmware update for the Galaxy Fit which I was unaware of. I appreciate the firmware update which I eventually found on own but lack of instructions with this plugin caused problems. First, let us know whether the firmware update is co-requisite. Second and most important, place clear instructions that your phone needs to be rebooted after updating this plugin or it won't work. I hate figuring this stuff out by trial and error, a frustrating waste of my time. 5 stars for the firmware update, 1 star for communication and lack of instructions.

Why the hell is this draining so much battery in the background. I understand that this plugin is important for the watch to stay connected. But that doesn't justify the battery drain. I am using the OnePlus 7 pro. Is this a compatibility issue? The battery stats are shocking.

Not sure what bug fixes were done but they have successfully stopped my gear fit 2 pro from working over night after an accessory's update over the same night. Have tried to uninstall several times and pair again but to no avail. Am at a lost as to what to do now to fix the problem. I use this watch all the time so to find it not working after it was going fine the night before is a bit upsetting. Please fix, thanks.

Hoped this update would fix Samsung Pay that hasn't worked since Android 10. Instead, Samsung Pay STILL doesn't work even though the watch performed a complete reset. Now the watch also doesn't track my sleep. No Samsung Pay and no sleep tracking... No need for this watch. You STOLE my perfectly working PAID for smartwatch and replaced it with a dumb watch that cost a lot of money. Considering how long I've been waiting for Pay to be fixed, I'm not holding my breath for this mess to fixed.

After updating to latest version on my oneplus 7T (Android 10), the battery started to drain very quickly. Yes, i confirm when i checked the battery status with "Detailed usage", only this Samsung Accessory Service" consumed nearly 60% as usage leading to quick battery drainage, can this be rectified quickly ?

After installing the last update my OnePlus 6t getting battery drain too fast, its all of about 50 percent to 60 persent of battery is draining after full charge. Please fix the issue with the next update so we can use it wisely.

This app has been draining my phone battery since your last update. Check detailed battery usage and this app has highest usage. This needs to be fixed immediately

Battery life on my Gear S3 has plummeted since this update. A full charge used to last me about 4-5 days. Now it is dead in under 24 hours.

I love the watch, very well made. However, I have a MAJOR quarrel with Samsung. When the watch is connected to my phone, my Google Assistant doesn't listen. The Assistant screen pops up, but doesn't hear my voice at all, even through the watch mic. Furthermore, the watch doesn't work with Wear OS from Google. More still, you have to download at least three Samsung apps for the watch to work properly, four if you want the fitness portion to work.

Keeps on draining smart watch & disconnecting it from Pixel XL after the latest update. Still can't use it with Android 10 update (

Same problem as all other users... Battery drain on android 9 using oneplus 6... Why isn't this fixed?

Buggy and battery drain Tried to transfer music from Note 10+ SD card to my gear sport watch. Over the next week if my phone got anywhere near my watch and wifi, it would attempt to send music and more music and more music, then fail, then try again and again all the while draining my phone and watch if battery power. Tried force closing the app, look at phone an hour later and it again is transferring random music. After a week of this I just uninstalled.

The notification window shows that the Samsung accessory service is sending a file. This disappears within 1 second. Several seconds later the message displays again, which also only lasts for 1 second. This repeats endlessly. Every few minutes I get a notification from Android System saying Samsung accessory service is not responding and to force quit.

after this past update, The watch won't remotely connect to the phone anymore, (meaning over the LTE network). i have Verizon, and it was working just fine before the update. so, whatever y'all did in the last update, (the current one), you need to reverse it.

Crazy battery drain. Got the Watch 2 as a gift & now I don't know. @Samsung - u guys really need to fix this

Finally fixed some of the many problems so 3 stars instead of 1.

Failing misserably. Everytime I instal on my pixel 3, it causes a Bluetooth malfunction and every 6 seconds I receive a notification that Bluetooth has stopped working. I can not keep a Bluetooth connecting with anything while this is happening. So I can not use my smart watch due to this problem.

Recently this mus have updated and causes a notification that a file is transferring every 5sec or so. This causes my watch to die in a Less than a quarter of the time it should. Only thing I can do is disconnect my watch from my phone so it's basically not a smart watch.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is the worst smartwatch I've had and it's because of these apps! They constantly disconnect the watch and drain the phone and watch battery. My phone has a 5580mha battery. Used to last 2 days. Now I'm lucky if it lasts 4 hours. Fix theses apps!

Causes extreme battery drain. No fix in sight.

Having to download three different apps in order to Bluetooth pair my watch is ridiculous and dont actually try to get away with saying location permission is necessary so my ohone can find the watch to pair with. Bluetooth connections and gps position have no overlap whatsoever.

After Android Q (10) update. SAS keeps connecting causing both phone and watch battery to drain at a crazy fast rate. I have to put my watch on low power mode until Samsung shirts things out.

It is consuming too much of battery!!! Fix this issue

Massive battery drain. Every since the update my watch can't last more than 6 hours before it dies. I hope they update this app fast. It's very disappointing

Constantly get a notice that it is transferring file. Very annoying. Can't turn the notice off and it gets stuck

The latest update causing a massive battery drain on both my watch and my phone. Nothing ive done fixes it. My phone is dead by 3pm when i normally go all day with still 20% left, amd my watch only lasts about 5 hours

After updating app to ver., facing issue of disconnecting my gear s3 via Bluetooth immediately even after connecting manually. Tried restarting phone and watch but issue persists. Please fix the issue.

Draining battery from phone and watch after updating.

Drains battery. I'm not even using it for anything. It uses like 30 percentage of the battery.

Application stops after few minutes even the phone is connected via the Bluetooth. The phone must be restarted.

I am using this app for past 3 weeks in my OnePlus 6T phone since i purchased a samsung smart watch. My phone has started heating up and battery lasts only 4-5 hours agains whole day earlier. Pathetic ... donno what to do

Horrible, kept trying to send music over and over and over.

Please update to use with android 10 for pixel phones every year this happen and my watch turns into a paper weight. I love your watches but every year at this time i always think is there something better elsewhere.

Don't work with Android 10 with my Pixel XL! Trash software, Even though Samsung's been on beta of Android 10 for months!

Drain battery like hell. 44% since full charge and that was 24 hour ago.

Unable to answer calls from Samsung Galaxy Watch Active, connected to OnePlus 5T.

App is not working at all... You need to fix it ASAP!!!!!

Mobile network setup doesn't work on non Samsung phone

Some times difficult to connect with watch and phone

Doesn't work anymore after I updated my pixel 2 XL to Android 10

Manages GALAXY watch on a Pixel and does not support Android 10.

Doesn't keep connection with Android 10(Q) software.

Very slow for pairing with new update

Causing both watch and phone battery drain in few hours on Android 10

Consuming too much battery

Draining battery very fast

Watch software is full of bugs

Horrible, does not work with Pixel phone

Very buggy in Android 10

Crashes on Android 10

Cannot use on my Infinix Hot8.

Can't swop between Galaxy watches!!!

Works 100% with my OPPO phone

Edit 11/16 update did nothing to fix the compatibility issue. With update to Android 10 I'm getting over 1000 alerts per day and battery life on S3 has been cut by 75%! Worked great beforehand.

Crazy hard battery usage

Great apps, awesome, wonderful

Doesn't work with Bancolombia bank

As per others I have an unusable watch and almost unusable phone. I uninstalled to save battery drain but now can't connect at all. Months of beta time and then this. It's pathetic and I will be requesting a refund and won't buy Samsung again.

Tried to update (R370XXU0ASE2 - R370XXU0ASG2) new Galaxy Fit (SM - R370) and failed now I'm stuck with an exclamation mark on my screen and no matter how many times I reset everything it doesn't work it's extremely frustrating. I cant even get it back to what it was before. The main issue is whenever i try to update it keeps disconnecting.

BATTERY KILLER! Even if you force it closed, this app still opens back up by itself and uses easily over half of your daily charge. if you don't absolutely need this app on your phone DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT. If you do need this app on your phone, you'll just have to deal with force closing it constantly so your phone doesn't die.

Using for watch active 2 with my one plus 6t and it keeps draining my phone battery. Also because of this my phone is now getting heated which i have never observed in my 6T.

Hi, I want to report a bug in the latest version of Samsung accessory service(sas), I have a galaxy note 9 , galaxy watch, when I update to the latest version of sas, I receive double notifications on my phone, also I still receive notifications with sound in any sound/vibrate/silent mode , the latest working version is my note 9 is updated to the latest firmware available 1 may 2019, galaxy watch firmware R800XXU1CSD6, One UI 1.0, tizen

After the recent update, it has started to drain my battery in OnePlus 6T. Please let me know when the issue is fixed.

Text Thread probs... Im currently using a Motorola G6 play (with Gear S2) and the text notifications go through however they are not saved in the messages app on the watch. This function worked before the newest update on the watch... They are treated as normal notifications. Samsung is lacking in this aspect. Please fix this😖

My watch will not keep power all day and the app will not stay connected. This needs to be fixed!!

Had to uninstall this after updating to Android 10. Does not work at all and drains your phone's battery quickly. Samsung, do better.

its draing my phone at A RIDICULOUS rate🤬 I keep forcing this app to close but it keeps reopening ..I even thought i uninstalled but i guess it installed itself back.....constantly runs I the background . I have been a galaxy user for over 10 yrs and this app is HORRIBLE. SAMSUNG PLEASE DELETE THIS APP!!!!

Does not support Legacy product like the gear 2 properly anymore. can hardly connect with phone after sometime, will have to uninstall samsung accessory service and reinstall back to get it working again. please look into this samsung!

everytime this app updates and starts it makes my Samsung watch not connect to my note 9. I uninstall the update and the watch works. just remove the bad app completely from the phone please. WHY IS THIS APP STILL SO BAD

Causes my Galaxy Wearable app to constantly crash and chew through the battery on my watch and my phone. Not happy about this happening shortly after buying a $200 watch.....

Not sure what to think! Didn't even know it was installed til I noticed it on my list of apps. My new gear 3 watch somehow auto-installed it during the pairing process. A little scary to know that an app can auto-install on your device without u knowing. I did install the Samsung Gear app but I did not install this one. I am not happy at all about the fact that this was installed without my permission or authorization. It's a breach of privacy as far I'm concerned. 2 strikes against Samsung!!

update your application after oneui in galaxy watch 42mm . i was trying to send some songs it wasnt progressing it stuck on sending tracks. then i restarted and it worked. i tired again and it got stuck again.

Battery on my oneplus 6 phone is draining sure to it faster than taxi meter. Please fix this.

Bought the galaxy watch, I have a Huawei p20 pro. The watch constantly disconnects and reconnects. Sometimes a few times a minute, sometimes a few times every ten minutes. Even as I write this it's has disconnected and reconnected twice. I have changed all the battery optimising settings on my phone ignore this app and the other two apps i apparently need to have the watch and it does the same thing over and over. Installed on my wife's phone, exact same thing happens.

If you own a Samsung phone and don’t mind sharing every aspect of your life then this appears to be a very good option. However, as per Samsung support, “You can login into Samsung account only from the Samsung phones not from other than Samsung phones as per the device design from the manufacturer.” Last year Samsung’s CEO (Lee Jae-yong) was convicted of perjury, bribery, embezzlement, …. Four other top-level execs were also convicted (source The Guardian). Flash forward to today. If you install the Wearable, Health, or supporting applications you are forced to give Samsung pretty much full access to your phone (location, contacts, calendar, phone, folders, etc.). Doesn’t matter what you WANT to use the apps for. Grant access or the apps won’t even start. Others have complained about the level of access required by the applications. Samsung’s response has been that we should trust them, they won’t share any data. I’m sorry but given the executive convictions, permission requirements, and the response of “trust us” I’m not feeling the warm and fuzzy. Why should I have to give an app full access to my phone just to be able to download a new watch face?

It dawned on me that I get notifications at night while I'm asleep and when I'm driving. When I'm driving, I stream music from my phone. At night, my phone volume is Max for my alarm. At all other times, phone vibrate and sound is muted. I found that when my phone is muted, I get no notifications. a setting in the gear app will mute phone if notifications rec'd on the watch. don't mute your phone. do it through gear app

I don't really like it. can I do with out it? is disturbing my phone and Samsung Watch setting and every time I send messages the icon appears on the top screen that I don't really like it .how can I turn it off. and do I really need it and where does this app storeing the information. annoying :(

I wouldn't have noticed except my "Pushbullet" app shows the notification, on my MSi laptop, when something is being transferred. It doesn't show anything on my mobile, at least not that I have been able to determine. I'm also running a Samsung Galaxy Watch, Samsung Note Book and Samsung Note 9 and haven't had any problems at all, nor have I noticed any battery issues which seem to be the main problem for other commentators.

Don't launch in my Android 10

Voice-to-Text is not working. When a Galaxy Watch is in Standalone it works, but over Bluetooth it doesn't.

As far as utility apps go this Samsung software functions quite smoothly & quietly in thr background when communicating among a Samsung Galaxy Watch Active, Android OS 9, and the hardware mesh included with either the OnePlus 6T, OnePlus 7 Pro, or the Pixel 1,2 or 3 🤓

I have a pixel 3 on google Fi and a samsung gear 3 frontier, This app chews up more data in one day than any other three apps combined!! The reviews about samsung collecting data large amount of data about users must be all true. The google fit app and the gear 3 watch do not recognize each other--does not matter how many shut-down, re-installs and what not, they do not work together. The app chews up both data and time trying to make things work out.

Not running properly on Android 10 after updating service.

Optimize for Android 10, it's draining my battery really quick

I try to sign in to my Samsung account and I get a white blank screen. it just freezes at the point of sign in. Very frustrating! I had to use my wife's Samsung phone to sign into my Samsung account so i could reactivate my Gear S3. I have an Android so I don't have to deal with Apple isses! ugh!! I wonder if Samsung even reads these reviews.

My gear S3 doesn't show auto body movements like walking,heart beat etc. Emails sent in this regard were replied vaguely without proper solutions.

I see all these "connectivity" issues with other people. I had no problem. I think people are trying to connect via Bluetooth, (which I tried originally) but after installing the App, there is another "Samsung Accessory Service" that needs downloaded. Worked perfectly after that.

this last update destroyed my batterys (both phone and watch) tried uninstalling several times, and it keeps comming back. constant notifications. please fix or let me remove it completely

The most recent update is giving me the blank login screen, same as other reviewers. I spent over an hour with tech support were I had to repeat myself several times and ultimately passed on to someone else. Not a good look as this is my first trial of Samsung.... possibly my last.

Like others have reported, the battery drain from this application is crazy. I run this on a Pixel 2 for my Gear S3 and no more than 1 1/2 hours off the charger with a full charge my battery is already drained by 20%. The top user is this app.

my phone and watch both "crashed" and I had tech on the phone and no help.. Now I cannot receive messages on my watch like before. PLEASE FIX THIS MESS.

Designed to help Samsung's watch and earbuds work better. so far, just breaks the Bluetooth connection with my car, headset, google home, etc.

On my Vivo V15 pro the app is crushing continuous, when i connected with my Galaxy Watch s3 frontier and is disconecting and connecting every 5 min.

Trying to update Samsung health. No success. Trying to update Here. Same problem. Mess.

I just purchased a Samung GS2 watch and keep getting an error message when I try to sync - "Samsung accessory service has stopped working."

Most accessories seem to run pretty seamless, except for one issue. Since release my IconX will partially disconnect every time WiFi signal is low whether WiFi is on or off. Two separate sets of IconX's both do the same thing.

sadly this did not fix the fact that your own apps in your app store wont install over to the watch, still disconnects

for some strange reason since the last updated is constantly transfering file to device and instead of using speaker most of the time the audio is routed through the top microphone ?!?!?!!!

After the last update phone's and watch's batteries are draining so fast and phone is heating up. I uninstalled this app and both are normal now. Do something for this. It's a very critical issue.

It suddenly started draining the Gear S3 watch battery from 70% to 0% WHILE IM SLEEPING, within 4 HOURS of going to sleep. It also tried to drain my phone like 15% over night too. FIX THIS NOW, THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE.
