The Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5 having screen wake issues

Recently, Samsung released new updates for the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5, in which Samsung enabled body composition features. But it seems that there is some bug in the new update, as complaints about Galaxy Watch 4 and 5 are increasing.

Some users reported that waking up the display with a simple hand movement no longer works. It is reported that the screen comes on once but immediately turns off again after a second. In fact, both generations of the Galaxy Watch have probably been affected.

The solution is that you have to quickly tap the display when it is briefly activated. This solution temporarily resolves the error in the software. It is learned from the sources that this problem occurs only when you take off the watch and later put it back on your wrist.

The issue has been shared by users on Reddit (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,), on Samsung’s forum, and possibly on Google’s Wear OS forum as well. Till now there is no response from Samsung but Samsung will fix it soon.
