Hi

I have an LG G2 LS980, a Sony SBH52 Bluetooth headset and U8+ Pro Smartwatch.

My motive is to make / receive calls and control music from the a smartwatch; and hear calls / music over SBH52.

But the problem is.... I cannot connect SBH52 and U8 simultaneously to my phone. Only one device is connected to the phone at one time. While SBH52 being connected, when I try to connect U8 to phone, the phone shows both devices connected simultaneously (while the U8 shows "Connecting"). After about 10 - 15 seconds, the phone shows only SBH52 connected and U8 shows connected. If I try to make a call or play music from U8, it says" Connect to BT".

Theoratocally, Bluetooth allows 8 devices to be connected in a network, with one of them being a host. All that devices have Bluetooth 4.0. I have googleg enough, but I can find only pages that say that this can be accomplished. There is no mention of how to do it.

Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Try connecting smartwatch first? Also, can you connect SBH52 and another BT device? I am suspect of any 17$ smart watch made in China.

@Trikein: Yes. You are right. U8 is a filthy 17$ smartwatch made in China. That explains a lot. Thanks.

@Trikein: I connected Smartwatch first this time. I worked. But, one device is connected as "Call Audio" while the other as "Media Audio". I tried multi-connection with a SBH52 and Jabra BT2046. Again, one device is connected as "Call Audio" while the other as "Media Audio".

That kinda doesn't seem to solve the problem - make / receive calls from the Smartwatch and speak over BT headset, without ever touching the phone.

Anything that I am missing?

It does if trying to isolate the problem. I didn't call it filthy, but if you have 3 things that don't work together, I am going to suspect the cheapest, least standard item first.  I was explaining why I was suggesting to isolate phone issue from watch issue, which you did. ::Edit:: Actually I was confusing U8 with U8+ which is much more advanced. Apologies.

 

Have you seen/heard/read anywhere that your motive is technically possible? Sounds like it can't assign single audio functions to multiple devices.  2 devices can have 1 audio profile each, but 1 can't have both if other devices is trying to sync phone function. Not a android expert though, just guessing. Try android forum?

Yes. I have read in many forums where folks have said that they have done it (no explicit mention whether they have done it with U8+). Also, the Jabra is acting the same way as the U8+.

Now, either the problem is with the phone or I am missing something.

Its with the phone. Thats why I suggested asking on the Android forum. It's not a networking issue.
