Take a Screenshot on Your Watch

You just received an important message on your watch and you want to save it, just in case. But your phone isn't nearby. No worries, you can take screenshots on your watch, and they will be saved in Gallery. And you can transfer screenshots from your watch to your phone later!

Available screens and settings may vary by provider, phone, or watch.

Certain apps and features do not allow screenshots.

Capture a Screenshot

You can capture a screenshot by simultaneously pressing the Home key and swiping from the left side of the screen to the right side.

Send Screenshots to Your Phone

From the watch's Home screen, press the Home key, and then touch Gallery. Touch and hold the desired screenshot. To include additional screenshots in the transfer, rotate the bezel and touch the screenshots you want to include. When you are done, touch More Options, and then touch Send to phone. The screenshot will be be transferred to your mobile device and saved to the Watch or Gear folder in Gallery.

Once you've transferred your screenshots, you can view them on your phone anytime. Now that important message is set in stone.

On your watch's Home screen, press the Home key, touch Gallery, and then touch the desired screenshot.

On your phone, navigate to Gallery, touch the Watch or Gear album, and then touch the desired screenshot to view it.

Note: To view a watch screenshot on your phone, the screenshot must be sent to the phone first.
