Manage App Permissions on Your Galaxy Watch

In order to use all the featureas on your Galaxy Watch, you have to allow certain permissions. For example, Alt-Barometer needs to access your location so it can determine your elevation; or maybe Bixby needs access to your microphone, but you want your storage to be off limits. You can turn app permissions on or off in just a few taps.

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

App Permissions

You can access specific permissions for all your apps and turn them on or off. From the watch's Home screen, touch Settings, and then swipe to and touch Apps. Swipe to and touch Permissions, and then select the desired app. Turn the available permissions for the app on or off by touching the sliders.
