Pair Your Samsung Earbuds

Even if your earbuds were out of sync by a millisecond, that would be enough to cause a headache. Luckily, pairing your earbuds could not be any easier. Just put both earbuds into your ears and they will connect to each other. It's really that simple.

Couple the Galaxy Buds

  • If a Galaxy Buds earbud is removed from your ear, the pairing will be disconnected.

  • To re-pair the Galaxy Buds earbuds together, wear both Galaxy Buds earbuds again. Pairing will be automatically recovered. If not recovered, keep the Galaxy Buds earbuds in the charging case for at least 7 seconds. Then, wear them again.

  • If you lose a Galaxy Buds earbud, some Galaxy Buds features may be unavailable. For purchase inquiries, visit a local Samsung Service Center.

Set the Main Exercise Earbud on the Gear IconX

This feature is not available on the Galaxy Buds.

You can set the main earbud to use the call feature and record exercise information.

Open the Galaxy Wearable app, touch SETTINGS, and then touch Exercise > Exercise earbud. Select whether the Left or Right earbud will track your exercise. All workout data will only be tracked using this earbud.

Note: The default Exercise earbud is set to Right. After you set the main earbud, the Gear IconX earbuds may not automatically connect to your phone. If this happens, reconnect the Gear IconX earbuds to your phone manually.
