Text-to-speech on your Samsung smart watch

Text-to-speech screen displayed on a Galaxy Watch Active 2

Reading small text on a watch screen can be difficult sometimes, especially if you are on the go. No worries, with a Galaxy or Gear smart watch and text-to-speech, you can actually have your watch read text aloud to you. Have it read messages or notifications aloud, so you'll never misread any important information again.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by provider, phone, or watch. This feature is not available on the Galaxy Fit, Gear Fit2 Pro and Gear Fit2.

Text-to-speech options

From the watch's Home screen, navigate to Settings and then tap General Text-to-speech. From here, you can choose from the available options:

  • Language: Choose the language for spoken text.

  • Speech rate: Set the speed at which the text is read.

  • Read notifications: Set the watch to read notifications aloud.

    Note: Depending on your watch model, a Bluetooth headset may be required for this feature.
