Manage widgets on your Samsung smart watch
Did you know you can access your watch's features with just a flick of your finger? Rather you have a smartwatch or a fitness band, it has widgets, which are like previews of your favorite apps. For example, they can give you weather updates without having to open the Weather app. Just swipe left from the Home screen to see what's happening with your widgets.
Note: Available screens and settings may vary by provider, phone, or watch. Some watch models can only manage widgets through the Galaxy Wearable apps.
Add or remove widgets using the watch
Note: You must use the Galaxy Wearable app to add or remove widgets on a Galaxy Fit.
To add a widget from the watch's Home screen, swipe left until you reach the end of all your widgets. Tap Add or Add widget and then swipe to and tap the widget you want to add. If the maximum number of widgets has already been reached, you will have to remove a widget to add a new one.
To remove a widget from the watch's Home screen, swipe to the left until you reach your desired widget. Tap and hold the widget, and then release. To rearrange the widgets' order, drag and drop the selected widget to your desired location. Or, if you want to delete the selected widget, tap the Remove icon on the upper right.
