Switch between devices in Galaxy Wearable
The Galaxy Wearable app has a great memory. With its Auto switch feature, it will remember if you've paired more than one Galaxy wearable device, so you can easily switch between your devices. Simply put on your other connected device, and the Galaxy Wearable app with automatically connect to it.
Note: This feature is not available on iOS devices or the Samsung Galaxy Watch app.
Use Auto switch
Oops, you decided to use a different wearable today but forgot to change it in the Galaxy Wearable app. No problem, the app will recognize when you're wearing a different device and automatically connect to it!
Before we proceed, please be aware that the Auto Switch option won't appear unless you have connected more than one watch.
Navigate to and open the Galaxy Wearable app. Tap Menu in the upper left-hand corner, and then tap Auto switch. Next, tap the switch at the top of the screen to turn Auto Switch on or off. Now the phone will automatically connect to whatever paired wearable you're wearing on your wrist.
Note: This feature only works with smart watches. It will not work if you connect two of the same type of device. This feature is not available on iOS devices.
Switch devices manually
If needed, you can manually switch between your devices that are connected to Galaxy Wearable.
First, make sure the other device is turned on. Then, navigate to and open Galaxy Wearable on your phone. Tap Menu in the upper left-hand corner.
The name of the most recent device (Galaxy Watch, Gear S3, etc.) will appear at the top of the list. Select the device you want to connect to, and the app will automatically connect.
Note: The other device needs to be turned on. This feature is not available on iOS devices.
