Navigating Your Gear S

Your Samsung Gear S is easy to navigate using quick swipes.

Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Navigate Your Gear S

Follow these tips to navigate through your Gear S:

  • Turn off or restart the Gear S by pressing and holding the Power key on the front of the device.

  • Quickly access Volume and Brightness settings, as well as the available battery percentage, by double-touching any screen with two fingers.

  • Swipe from the top of the screen to the bottom to go back to the previous screen.

  • Press the Power key to turn off the Gear S display.

  • Set up a favorite application to open when you double-press the Power key. From the Clock screen, swipe up to access the Apps menu. Touch Settings > Double press. Select the application you want to access when you double-press the Power key.

If you feel discomfort while using the device, stop using it and remove it from your wrist. To avoid device malfunction, skin discomfort or damage, and battery draining, an initial warning will appear on the device if it reaches a specific temperature. If the device temperature continues to rise, a second warning will appear, and all device functions except outgoing 911 calls will be turned off. If you are on a call with 911 when the second warning appears, the call will remain active until you end it. If the device temperature rises further, a third warning will appear, and the entire device will shut down. Any 911 call that is connected at the time will remain active until you end the call. However, no new calls, including 911 calls, can be made until the device cools down to a specific temperature.
