The Galaxy Gear is an awesome device when connected to your Galaxy Note3, however, there will be times when you prefer not to connect both devices. This article will discuss two procedures for disconnecting your Samsung Galaxy Note3 from your Galaxy Gear.
For such an awesome device, you may be wondering why there is any need to disconnect your Galaxy Gear from your Note3. These are the reasons you might want to end the connection between these two great devices.
- 1Saves battery. Connection between your Note3 and Galaxy Gear is through Bluetooth communication. Turning on Bluetooth even if you are not using the Galaxy Gear for phone functions, will unnecessarily use a large chunk of the battery juice from both of your devices. If there is no need to connect them, make sure that you disconnect your Galaxy Gear from your Note3. This will ensure longer life-before-charging for both your devices, especially when you are travelling for many hours and you are unable to charge either of your devices.Advertisement
- 2Allows you to connect to a new device. Galaxy Note3 only allows one Gear connection at a time. This is to ensure no conflicting commands will go to the Note3 from two or more different Galaxy Gears. If you want to connect a new Galaxy Gear to your Note3, you need to disconnect the currently connected device to give way to a new Galaxy Gear device.Advertisement
- 3There is a problem with the connection. Whenever you have a problem controlling the phone from your Galaxy Gear, or you have connection problems between your two devices, disconnecting and connecting them again can help. Disconnecting an erratic connection will refresh both devices to allow a new and possibly better connection.
