Text-to-speech on your Samsung smart watch
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.
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.
Check for updates: Search for available updates.
