Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

What two devices, please, will not sync ?

Perhaps your Vivosmart and your computer with some Garmin Vivo' software on it ?

vivosmart HR and Moto X using Connect
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
The software was installed when I purchased the items a few months ago and worked fine until last weei
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Moto X Pure if that helps
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

OK.

What other devices does either the one (Vivosmart) or the other (Moto X), actually still succeed in connecting to?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
a Samsung TV but is it not connected
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It worked but I disconnected it for lack of need
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

When did the link to the Samsung TV last work OK?

Try it now, if not as recently as within the last 2 days.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I could connect with the TV and the Garmin but I do not use the TV connection. again the Moto X pure cell phone is the device
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I used the TV several days ago and have been able to sync with the vivosmart since
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
i just connect with the TV successfully
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

OK, that's good. It indicates that one of the two devices that won't link up is working, essentially, still.

Given that is the case the problem must be either on the other side (the Vivosmart, presumably) or it must be a configuration problem.

I presume that the connecting process consists of your making the Vivosmart available for a Bluetooth connection. Then configuring a connection on the Moto X side, and then pairing, then connecting.

Try going through those steps, in that order, once again - but! do not use what you already have configured esp. not on the Moto X. If the Moto X has an established configuration for auto-connecting to the Vivosmart, or that sort of thing, either remove it, o go around it and do the connect setup from scratch, as if the device were new to you.

It still fails
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

Then the Vivosmart may be defective - how old is it?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
i now cannot connect with the vivosmart as it is asking for a PIn and it shouldn't have one.
Expert:  Russell H. replied 1 month ago.

Reset the Vivosmart, then... and make sure first, that you are really trying to

PAIR

with it (not some other device) - because pairing is really the first stage of Bluetooth connecting, then follows Connecting, after Pairing can be done.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
about 5 months and it has worked until a few days ago
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
it will not let me connect as it is asking for a PIN and it does not have one
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I'm afraid none of your suggestions, many of which i have already tried are not working. i would like to cancel my free trial and money refunded.
