In this guide, we will show you the steps to fix Galaxy Watch 4 not working with Huawei devices. Between this fiasco of Huawei and Google, it was the users who were at the top. As the OEM was no longer authorized to use Google’s mobile services, users were left with no choice but to say goodbye to all Google apps and services. Although there are some workarounds through which you may be able to welcome Google apps back, they require interaction with untrustworthy third-party apps or Huawei ends up fixing these exploits.
Furthermore, its consequences have not only been felt in the smartphone domain, the smartwatch hosting the Android-based OS also faces this rage. In this regard, Samsung’s latest watch comes with WearOS 3 which is based on Android. While it was something to cheer on for the entire tech community,
unfortunately, the same cannot be said with owners of Huawei devices. There were big skeptics that the watch might not even be paired with the device, and the fear really came true.
Many Huawei device owners have expressed their concern that the Galaxy Watch 4 does not work with their smartphones. Well, I’m not even able to start the pairing process in the first place. Whenever they try to do this, they are instead greeted with the following error message: “This watch is not supported on this phone”. If you’re in the same boat too, don’t worry. In this guide, we will make you aware of an elegant workaround that will help you solve this problem [using only the official apps!].
