Manage tiles or widgets on your Samsung smart watch

Samsung smart watches come with several widgets that can be tailored to your usage. With the flick of a finger, you can access your preferred apps, features, and even specific workouts. These are called tiles on the most recent Galaxy watches, and you can add up to 15 for immediate access to your most-used features.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by provider, phone, or watch. Some watch models can only manage widgets through the Galaxy Wearable app.

Add or remove widgets or tiles using the watch

Note: If the maximum number has already been reached, you will have to remove a widget or tile to add a new one.

Do you want a faster way to access one of your favorite features on your watch? Just add a widget or tile for it if one is available.

To add a widget or tile from the watch's Home screen, swipe left until you reach the end of all your widgets or tiles. Tap Add widget or Add tiles, and then swipe to and tap the widget or tile you want to add. You can then access the widget or tiles by swiping left on the watch's Home screen.
