So I figured it out on mine. You have to go remove offline devices in your apotify account. In my case I had to remove them all. Then, I rebooted my phone and retried logging in and it finally worked.

Go on the spotify website and remove all offline devices. Log out of spotify on your phone. Reset both your phone and watch. Sign back into spotify on your phone then load spotify on your watch and it should automatically sign you in.

If you cannot log in through Facebook, this worked for me

 

Log into you spotify account online

set up a device password (spotify will send you an email, follow the instructions)

Once password is set up

find your spotify username (should be top right of the account page, Mine is a combination of 25 letters and numbers)

Use this and the device password you just set up to log in as a spotify user (not through facebook)

 

Hope this helps anyone

No offense, I find all these solutions to really suck. Typing a username & password on gear sucks to do once. Doing it multiple times feels like a long awaited punishment for being mean to insects when I was a child.

I finally got it working by creating a device password. It gave me a
username of a random string of numbers and then I created a password and it
let me right in. Hopefully you get it to work soon.

SOLUTION! - For anyone who has had the issue of not being able to log into your Spotify account using Facebook credentials on your Gear Fit2 Pro watch here is how I worked around it (after a very long very irritating trial and error period):

1. Log into Spotify on your desktop

2. Click on the arrow next to your profile picture and select "account"

3. Under the Account Overview tab on the lefthand side scroll to the very bottom and click on "Set Password" in the "set a password for your devices" section

4. You will receive an email with a web link and a numerical device Username. Click on the link in the email and and create a password of your choosing.

5. On your Gear Fit2 Pro go to the Spotify app and, with WiFi enabled, choose to log into Spotify using Spotify NOT Facebook. 

6. Use the numerical Username from the email you received as your username and enter the password you created and hit Log In. 

 

This worked for me and I hope it works for you because I was dangerously close to losing my mind until I figured this out.

Where is the"set a password for your devices" section?  I don't have that in my lefthand column.

Another solution is to set your device password within your spoitify account. This will allow you to login to Spotify on your great s3 using a pre-assigned numerical username and a password you set Menu screenshot

Das Problem ist die laufende Spotify App auf der Gear.

Also zuerst die App über das Smartphone unter "App Samsung Gear öffnen -> Apps" Spotify Stop erzwingen. Danach auf der Gear die Spotify App erneut starten. Login erfolgt automatisch

Ich hab auf der gear fit 2 das gleiche Problem alles versucht nur WLAN an kein oder doch Bluetooth. Service Passwort gibt's bei uns in Deutschland anscheinend nicht. Könnte ausrasten. Habe nur deswegen diese Uhr gekauft und jetzt geht es nicht
