Keep Your Watch Running Great

Your watch is really durable, but just like everything else, it needs some love. You need to make sure you’re giving it the very best care. We have some tips to keep your watch running in top shape. You can increase it's battery life, clear some storage, and clean its memory to make sure it's always running great.

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

Every watch performs a little differently. Let’s learn more about what's going on with your watch, so you'll know what to expect.

From your phone, open Galaxy Wearable, and then touch the INFO tab. Next, touch the different orange icons at the top of the screen to view your watch's desired settings. You can choose between Battery, Storage, and RAM information.

You can also touch the SETTINGS tab, swipe to and touch About watch, and then choose your desired option from there.

Increase Battery Life

Just like people, watches perform better when they have some energy in reserve. You can use Power saving mode or Watch only mode to increase your watch's battery life.

To access these features, navigate to Settings on your watch, and then touch Battery. Then, choose your desired setting.

  • Default: The standard power mode where you can use all of your watch's functons.

  • Power saving mode: This mode will use a grayscale Home screen, turn off all functions (except calls, messages, and notifications), turn off Wi-Fi, and limit your watch's performance.

  • Watch only mode: This mode will let you use the watch like a normal watch, but will disable all smart functions.
