Managing Widgets on Your Gear S

A widget is an interactive item that can be added to the Home screens of your device to give you quick access to information or tasks you perform frequently. For example, widgets can provide weather updates or notify you of upcoming calendar events. Your Gear S lets you customize up to five Home screens with widgets.

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

Add a Home Screen Widget

  1. From the Clock screen, swipe left to access a Home screen.

  2. Touch and hold the screen.

  3. Scroll to and touch the Home screen that contains a Plus icon.

    If all five Home screens have widgets assigned, you will have to remove one of the widgets before you can add a new one.

  4. Select a widget to display on the Home screen. A new Home screen will be created with the widget.

Remove a Home Screen Widget

  1. From the Clock screen, swipe left to access a Home screen.

  2. Touch and hold the screen.

  3. Touch the Minus icon next to the Home screen widget you want to remove.

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.
