Slicing the Water Fearlessly

Water Lock mode prevents the force of the water from inadvertently activating any functions when you’re swimming.

When you select Swimming on Samsung Health, Water Lock mode will activate automatically. Dive in, do your best, and always swim past your limits. When the Water Lock mode is turned off , a sound will indicate that your Galaxy Watch is ejecting any water that got in.

A Tool for Greater Well-Being

The Galaxy Watch’s four photodiode sensors track your wellness more accurately than ever. Not only do they measure your heart rate more precisely, they’ve also gotten better at monitoring different phases of sleep. So you’ll know if you’re staying fit, managing stress effectively, and getting enough rest. 


The Galaxy Watch even tells you when you need to adjust your breathing. Put your mind at ease and focus on your well-being. The Galaxy Watch is here to support you.

Stay Fit with Your Galaxy Watch and Your Galaxy Phone

Connect your Galaxy Watch to your Galaxy phone to turn it into a powerful health and fitness monitoring tool.


When you’re exercising, your Galaxy Watch records your activity and saves your data in Samsung Health so you can keep track of your progress over time. Live life to the fullest with Samsung Health.

Please note: Connect your Galaxy Watch with any phone in the Galaxy S, Note, A, or J series

Freedom, No Matter Where You Are

The Galaxy Watch LTE models support an independent data connection, so you can enjoy a powerful standalone performance - no need to carry your phone.

The built-in speaker facilitates calls and voice messages. The GPS capabilities make it easy to check your physical location on a map.

Thanks to the altimeter, you can discover your altitude. The barometer ensures you’re prepared for any sudden weather changes. And support for various streaming services makes it possible to listen to music with just your watch.

If you forget your phone at home, don’t panic - the Galaxy Watchfrees you to go it alone.
