  1. Hi

    You say ‘You can restore your data when you have finished connecting your Gear S2 to the other device. Return to the Backup and restore screen and select Restore data.’ But how do you do that when the S2 is now paired to the new device? The old phone will no longer see the S2 and there is nothing to restore from the new phone.
