Stop Guided Announcements when exercising with my Samsung Watch?

Last modified : Jun 27. 2019

Are you noticing guided announcements interrupt you while in the zone or while jamming to your tunes when exercising? It can be quite distracting when going for a run or maybe you just want to limit the frequency of the guided announcements. Follow the below guide to disable this function altogether or limit the amount of notifications you receive while exercising.

Please Note: Screenshots were captured from a Galaxy Watch Active operating on One UI Version 1.0. Settings and steps may vary depending on your Galaxy watch and software version.

1 On your Samsung smartwatch, manually select an exercise to track
Manually recording your workout
2 Scroll down to an exercise and tap the Settings cogwheel

3 Locate and select Guided frequency

4 Select between Distance, Time or None
Select between Distance, Time or none

Depending on the Guide Frequency options you select will change how often you receive your audio feedback whilst exercising. By selectingDistance or Time, you can adjust the range on how often you receive your audio feedback. If you choose to disable this function altogether, simply tap on None.

E.g: Every 1.00km, you will be notified on how your selected exercise is tracking.

Please Note: By changing the Guide Frequency on one exercise will not reflect on the other exercises. You will need to manually select each of your preferred exercises and adjust the Guide Frequency settings accordingly.

Thank you for your feedback!
