Waking Up Your Gear 2 Neo


The device may not wake up if you are leaning back or lying down.
Turning this feature on will consume battery power, as it is constantly using the motion sensor to detect movement.

Once your Gear 2 goes to sleep, you can turn it back on or wake up the device by pressing the Power key, located on the front of the device.

With the Wake-up gesture turned on, you can wake up the device by raising your arm. You can also shake your arm to wake up the device. You can set your Gear 2 to display the Clock screen or the last viewed screen.

To turn on the Wake-up gesture, from the Home screen of the mobile device, touch Apps > Gear Manager > Settings > Wake-up gesture. Touch the slider to turn Wake-up gesture on.

To choose which screen is shown on wake-up, touch Select screen shown. You can set your Gear 2 to display the Clock screen or the Last viewed screen.
