What is the Water Lock mode on the Galaxy Watch?

Last Update date : Sep 21. 2020

The Galaxy Watch is rated 5ATM water and dust resistant, which means it can withstand being used in the pool, the rain, or a post-workout shower. Be sure to turn on Water lock mode before swimming or exercising in water.

When Water Lock mode is enabled, the touchscreen, the wake-up gesture feature, and watch always on feature will be deactivated.

When you select Exercise > Swimming menu, the Water Lock mode will be activated automatically.

To turn off Water lock mode and eject water press and hold the Home button.

Please note: After you have turned off the Water lock feature be sure to remove water from inside the speaker. Do this by playing a loud sound on the Galaxty Watch.

Open the Apps screen → tap Settings → Advanced → Water lock mode → Eject water → Play sound.
