Does Samsung Watch Work With Oneplus ?


Does Samsung watch work with Oneplus? If you have a Samsung watch and you are thinking of buying a new Onplus (PROBABLY, THE NEW MODEL), or you already have a Oneplus and are thinking of buying a Samsung watch (46mm), you might have the above question in mind. 

In this article, you will find your answers and make sure you share it with your friends. 

Is your new galaxy watch compatible with your One plus? 

I have always been a Samsung fan (and, I really mean it). Recently I purchased a new Samsung Galaxy 46mm smartwatch. This smartwatch looks adorable and has got a number of features and benefits. But, I was a little nervous if it would be compatible with my new OnePlus 8 Pro. 

Yes, the Samsung watch works with Oneplus and there is no doubt in it. Messaging app in Oneplus is not compatible with the Samsung watch messages. (Will explain later how to fix it.)

Oneplus vs Samsung – Which is More Compatible With Samsung Watch? 

Samsung Smartphones 

Samsung is trying to create an ecosystem just like Apple. And, it’s really appreciated and great amazing work by Samsung. However, Samsung has to work hard to reach the next level. 

If we talk about its watches, users will get the best experience with the Samsung devices. 

  • Phones running Android 5.0 or higher with 1.5GB RAM or more are compatible with the Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Watch Active2, Galaxy Watch.
  • Phones running Android 4.3 or higher with 1.5GB RAM or more are compatible with the previous models.

How To Fix the Messaging Issue? 

See, I told you I will tell this answer (I kept my promise).

You have to give the messaging app the permission and send notification.

Once you do that you will start getting text notifications and you will be able to reply. 

But, here you will have one more problem. 

When you go and search for a messaging app on the watch, you will find nothing. 

You will get notification on your watch, you will be able to see the whole conversation, but you can’t reply from the watch if it is connected to the Oneplus. 

How to Reply? 

  • Go to the contact app on the watch
  • Search for the contact
  • Click on them and send the message. 

Or you can try this: 

Look at the notification from the watch and then reply to it from the phone. (easy way)
