Man using Bixby on Galaxy Watch Active 2

Your favorite AI assistant is even more versatile than before. Bixby is now available on certain Samsung smart watches! That's right, you can give Bixby commands without even taking your phone out of your pocket. But first, you'll need to get acquainted and set up Bixby on the watch.

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

Set up Bixby

Before Bixby can start assisting you right from your wrist, you need to set it up.

From the watch's Home screen, navigate to Bixby. Give Bixby permission to use the different features and review the Privacy Notice. After reviewing each screen, tap the Next arrow until the setup is complete. Then, follow the on-screen prompts to learn how to use Bixby on your watch.

Use Bixby

You can call Bixby for help anytime, anywhere. The default voice wake-up command for Bixby is "Hi, Bixby." Just say this phrase, and then give your desired command. You can also double press the Power key to open Bixby. If you've set it to something else, you can easily customize the double press.

Next, follow Bixby's prompts to complete the command, if necessary. When you are giving commands for the first time, you will need to give Bixby permission, so it can do whatever is needed to complete the command.
