But there is an alternative to do so; you need to disable the encryption before starting the update process. Then, tap on ‘Settings>Lock Screen & Security> Other security settings’ and then tap on decrypt device.

Also, update the Samsung Gear with the latest available version and if it is not working after the Marshmallow update, then uninstall the Gear Fit Manager app and then install again.
