    Since the 1.01 Apple Watch update I've had problems with bluetooth in my car.

    One of two things happen when I enter the car with my iphone and apple watch
    either:
    My Apple Watch loses connection with the phone as the phone pairs with the car's bluetooth (about 80% of the time)
    or
    My phone doesn't pair with the car at all bit keeps a connection with the Watch.

    The only way to resolve it is to switch the phone on and off and then the phone connects to both car and Watch.

    This has only happened since the 1.01 software update.

    Anyone else?

    I had the same issue in my car. Just had to repair the watch.

    My Watch > Apple Watch > Unpair Apple Watch.

    Is your car an Audi too, or a different marque? Just wondering since I have an Audi (but no watch yet).

    I had the issue on a BMW 7 series. I assume it's a generic bluetooth issue if it was happening in my car as well.

    Seems to have solved it.
    Unpairing and pairing again took a long time - car seemed ok but I was pairing the phone and watch in the car so may have overridden the car's bluetooth - we'll see tomorrow with a more realistic scenario.

    Have had this happen in a 2011 Merc. Also have to sometimes manually connect to my bluetooth headset (Bose) as well

    2011 Chevy Equinox...

    Car equipped with BT only for phone calls but not stereo. I worked around this with a BT adapter that's connected to the aux port of the radio which is nicely hidden in the center console.

    iPhone is connected to Car BT, and my watch and the BT adapter all at the same time with no issues.

    Just to confirm that pairing and unpairing watch with phone seems to work.
    Both apple watch and car connected with the car over bluetooth on several journeys today without issues - thanks for the tip.

    Car is Audi A4 2014 by the way.

    No problem with my Audi A4. Calls comes through car bluetooth, notifications through watch. Interestingly the watch doesn't display the incoming caller, but since the car does I'm not too worried about that.

    I've only used my watch from 1.01 so maybe it was the upgrade that did something.

    Ditto with a 2014 Pug. Seamless on both 1.0 and 1.01. Phone knows where to route the calls (car) and notifications (wrist).

    My watch arrived at last and I've had a chance to use it with my car now. Initiated a call on the watch using Siri, it fed straight to the car Bluetooth. Worked perfectly. My watch is on 1.0.1.

    Glad that worked. Repairing after the update likely set it up so it will work with out a problem now.

    Enjoy!
