Since its introduction in 2018, the Galaxy Watch proved to be a valuable companion to Galaxy smartphone, helping users achieve their health goals and monitor their overall health and well-being. However, it offers more than just health tracking capabilities — it serves as a convenient task planner and a neat extension of your phone.
Now, five years since the launch of the first Galaxy Watch, it has undergone many improvements. It has moved from being just a fitness tracker to becoming an essential tool that complements the Galaxy smartphone by providing easy access to various app activities. With features like a mini chatbox, planner, radio, and fitness tracker right on your wrist, the Galaxy Watch has proven to be an incredibly helpful and versatile device.
If you’re considering getting your own Galaxy Watch, you’ll be happy to know how seamlessly it can improve your tasks and add more fun to your daily routine when synced with your Galaxy smartphone. Here is a list of ways it can make your life easier and more enjoyable:
Track your health statistics
Track your fitness goals by seamlessly checking your health data on your Galaxy smartphone and Galaxy Watch. With the Samsung Health app, you can easily sync it from your phone to your Galaxy Watch. Just tap “Many Options” THEN “Settings” to start the sync process. You can choose the Samsung Watch accessory or choose “Scan for accessories” if it is not listed. This synchronization enables you to easily monitor your heart rate and Electrocardiogram (ECG) level directly from the app through your Galaxy Watch.
In addition, at the end of a busy day, you can wear your Galaxy Watch while sleeping and wake up to a comprehensive sleep report that includes information on your body movements, heart rate, and level of oxygen. This feature allows you to gain valuable insights into the quality of your sleep and make informed decisions to improve your overall well-being.
Keep tabs on emails and schedules
As you prepare for a busy day, it’s important to stay connected without compromising safety, especially when checking your schedule and emails on your phone while traveling. Fortunately, staying connected is easy with your Galaxy Watch. By syncing your Gmail and Calendar apps, you can easily access your meetings and reminders right on your wrist. No more fumbling with your phone or risking distraction while traveling or on your way to work.
In addition, on your Galaxy Watch, you can check and manage your emails directly from your wrist. The watch’s microphone allows you to dictate your answer, and it seamlessly transcribes your voice into text. This hands-free feature lets you stay productive and efficient, effortlessly managing your emails while keeping your focus on the tasks at hand.
Play music on-the-go
Join your favorite playlist when you’re working, commuting, or just completing work tasks by using your Galaxy Watch that syncs with your connected Galaxy smartphone. To ensure a seamless experience, make sure the “Auto sync” setting is enabled on your phone.
With Galaxy Watch and Spotify, you can enjoy an uninterrupted music experience. Download the Spotify app to your watch and save your favorite tracks, allowing you to listen to them even when offline. This means you can leave your phone behind and still enjoy your tunes directly from your Galaxy Watch using your earbuds or the built-in speakers. Whether you’re on the move or need some ambient sounds while focusing on work, your Galaxy Watch gets you an enjoyable music experience.
Check and reply to messages, anytime
Stay connected even during your workout sessions or social gatherings by using the messaging capabilities of your Galaxy Watch. With message notifications activated, you can easily check incoming messages and even make quick replies directly from your watch.
When a new message arrives, your Galaxy Watch will notify you with a gentle vibration or sound alert, ensuring you don’t miss any important communication. If you miss the initial alert, you can easily access the message by swiping the watch face to the right. From there, you have the option to create a quick reply by tapping an emoji or typing a message using the watch’s intuitive interface.
This feature allows you to stay engaged and connected without having to reach for your phone, making it effortless to answer messages and stay connected with others while traveling or in between activities.
Sync your devices seamlessly
Unlock the full potential of your Samsung Watch by connecting it to your Samsung smartphone. Just enable Bluetooth on your phone, and the watch will automatically connect to it. If you connect the watch to a new phone, a quick reset is required. Press the “Home” and “Back” buttons simultaneously, and wait for the reset to complete. Once done, navigate to the watch’s “Settings” menu, select “General,” and tap “Connect to a new phone.” Following these steps, you can enjoy all the functions of your Samsung Watch without having to take out your phone.
