Using Bixby on a Samsung Watch
Want to quickly start a workout, call someone from your contact list and send a friend a quick text without having to whip your Galaxy phone out? Use Bixby on your Samsung Watch to easily send off that text, call your mates, set reminders or start a workout. Follow the below guide for step-by-step instructions.
Please Note: This guide is designed for Australian variant Galaxy devices, if you have an international device and require further support click here to get in touch with your Samsung subsidiary. The below screenshots were captured from a Galaxy Watch Active2 operating on One UI Watch Version 1.5, settings and screenshots available may vary depending on your device and software version.
If you would like to continue to answer the call from your Samsung Watch check the device specs to see if your watch has a microphone and speaker. If they do not have both you will be directed to answer the call from your connected phone.
If you are noticing Bixby isn't responding to you when you wake up your screen, check that you have enabled Voice wake-up.
DOES BIXBY VOICE ACCESS OR COLLECT INFORMATION ABOUT MY LOCATION?
When you ask a question or issue a request, Bixby Voice accesses location information obtained from your device if ‘Location’ is turned on in your device settings, and will use that location information as necessary to answer a question you ask or respond to a request you make (e.g. if you ask “How’s the weather today?”, Bixby Voice will use your location data to figure out the correct weather information to provide to you). However, Bixby Voice will not be able to access your location data if you have turned ‘Location’ off in your device settings.
