    I have a new phone a Galaxy Samsung S20.  While the phone showed the watch and the pairing codes matched, the watch will not connect and the watch is now an hour behind.  In addition, the watch no longer appears on he list of available devices on the phone. I have uninstalled and reinstalled WearOS on the phone but I am not about to reset the watch and have that not work as well as I have seen from various comments  Please help.

    In my case, after initializing and restarting my smartwatch, letting it sit for about 30 minutes, and then starting setup, I often feel that the process is complete.

    Could not connect Fossil Gen 5 Sport watch to new Samsung s20+, previously connected to Samsung S9. Tried multiple resetting of watch, rebooting of watch and phone, removing Bluetooth connection, etc. Nothing worked. Then removed apps from the new Samsung phone, reset watch yet again, rebooted everything, and ran the Weat OS app on the phone. This time it connected and watch is now successfully repaired. TBH, not sure what worked, but I can confirm that the Gen 5 watch will pair with the S20+.
