Galaxy Gear™: What is Smart Relay, and how do I use it

Last Update Date : May 16. 2018

Galaxy Gear™ - Smart Relay

Smart relay lets you view notification alerts, such as missed calls, from your Samsung Galaxy Gear™ by picking up the mobile device. As soon as you get a notification on Galaxy Gear, Smart relay goes straight to that application on the Samsung Galaxy® mobile device.


To enable Smart relay, from the Home screen of the mobile device, touch Apps 2 > Gear Manager d > Settings s > Smart relay. Touch the slider d to turn Smart relay on 2 .

You can also access the settings from the Galaxy Gear. From the Clock screen, swipe to the right to access Settings  1 > Motions 11 and place a check mark next to Smart relay.

NOTE: For privacy, Smart relay only works when the Galaxy Gear is in close proximity to the mobile device and the Galaxy Gear device's screen is on.
