If you own a Samsung phone and a Huawei wearable – any of the honor bands, Watch GTs or Magic Watch – you might be facing trouble operating the Huawei Health app that links these wearables to your phone.
We have noticed Huawei Mobile Services repeatedly crashing on our OneUI2.0 (Android 10) phones including Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy Note 10+, and Galaxy Note 10 Lite. And since Huawei Mobile Services are required even for rudimentary tasks like installing new wallpapers, you are probably in a hot mess.
Here’s how you can fix this problem in a few simple steps.
