Huawei Watch 2 Classic/Pixel 2

When my watch is enabled to "Play phone voice call on watch", almost all the time when I answer phone calls directly on my phone , I cannot hear anything and when I switch audio outputs to speaker or bluetooth (the watch) I still can't hear anything.  It seems to take 10-15 seconds of me switching audio outputs before I can start to hear anything.  I like being able to still answer calls on the actual phone and not my watch when needed.  I'm guessing the phone is having an issue juggling the audio outputs with the watch connected.  I don't have this issue when I have bluetooth earbuds connected as my bluetooth phone audio device.  When I initiate the call on my phone I do not have the issue.  It is only when I am receiving a call.  I also factory reset my phone and watch yesterday and the issue still lingers.  

Thanks and any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Its very annoying, especially in quite environments where suddenly everyone starts listening to your watch's speakerphone. I turn this feature ON only when driving in my car since its a good hands free alternative, but turn it OFF after that

I'm facing the same issue and I can provide a bug report from my Pixel. However, I don't know which email address to send the bug report to since it contains sensitive logs etc.

Happens on my Huawei Watch 2 classic and on my Pixel 2 XL.  I have no idea whose fault it is or how to fix it.

Also happening to me. I answer call on phone and can't hear anything ,it's like the watch took over the call . Then maybe after 10 seconds of panic and saying hello over and over the call is finally back to the phone. Very irritating to do business this way.
