Pair Bluetooth headphones to your Samsung smart watch

Pair Bluetooth headphones to Galaxy smart watch

Sometimes it's hard to keep the music going at the office without disturbing anyone around you. Instead, you should connect your smart watch to a pair of Bluetooth headphones, so you can enjoy the soundtrack of your life. You can easily switch between Bluetooth devices and alter their settings right from the watch. You can also take calls if your watch is connected to a phone. You can find the newest Galaxy smart watch and earbud headphones on the Samsung Shop.

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

Note: Audio output for call conversation to Bluetooth headphones is only available with LTE watch models. If the switch for Call audio and Media audio is turned off, you will not hear any output to the Bluetooth headphones and they may disconnect from the watch.

Pairing your Bluetooth headphones will only take a few moments, and then you’ll be ready to listen to your favorite music.

  1. On your watch, navigate to Settings. Then, swipe to and tap Connections, and tap Bluetooth.
