Galaxy Watch users report app outage

In another piece of bad news for Samsung this week, the Galaxy Wearable app for Android devices is reportedly broken, with many users claiming to encounter sign-in problems.

According to a thread on Samsung’s community forums, Galaxy users have been unable to log in to the companion app since at least Thursday. Users are instead greeted with a white screen, unable to backup their devices or install apps.

At the time of writing, the thread spans 75 pages, affecting multiple Android phones including the OnePlus 6, Huawei Mate 20 and Google Pixel 2 XL - but, interestingly, no Samsung devices.

Users around the world started complaining about the issue on Twitter in no time.

[Translation from German: @SamsungDE [Samsung Germany] The silly app has logged me out of the store because it says my session expired. Can I log back in? Nope, thanks to a white window…]


[Translation from Portuguese: @SamsungBrasil The Galaxy Wearable app won’t let me log in to set up my Galaxy Watch. Now it’s just a clock. Not happy.]

Some users have reported that the app is working again, though it's currently unclear whether this is due to a workaround found by Samsung user LarsN or whether the issue has been formally resolved on Samsung's end.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
