Default Gear's contacts incomplete and random.

Hello guys

I have the S4 LTE running stock 4.3, and a Gear.

For some weird reason, Gear is not consistent in displaying my contacts.
For example, my wife's contact consist of 3 numbers. Office land line and two mobile phones. One of the mobile numbers is set to default.

Gear only show single number, the office landline. There is no way to control it, nor make it use the default number set on the phone.

Anyone can confirm this behavior, please ?

I was hoping the 4.3 update would fix that, given it should come with full compatibility, but I was wrong.

Solved it.

I had to rename the labels for each number. Then reset gear and sync. All worked like charm.

After I reset my Gear and reorganized contacts, it works just like that. Before, it would show just one number, no matter how many I had under a contact. and mostly land-line, not mobile.

Maybe something screwed up during installation. No matter, now it works just fine

That seems like a crazy amount of work, I take it you needed to do that for each contact? Is there no simpler way. Or something I can automate?

I have problems with the Gear not showing all of my contacts. There are quite a few that don't show up. I ended up changing it to show only Favorites for now.
