With News Briefing, you can choose topics of your interest. That way, you can see the latest headlines at a glance and catch up on the kind of news you want to read. If the app isn't already installed, you'll need to install it using the Galaxy Store app.
From the Watch screen, press the Home key, and then navigate to and select News Briefing. If you’re opening the News Briefing app for the first time, review the legal notice and if you agree, tap AGREE. Next, tap START to proceed. Select or deselect topics, and then tap OK.

News Briefing gives you an easy way to stay informed. The best part is you’ll only see the type of news you want to see. So, if you just want to receive sports updates, you can do so.
From the Watch screen, press the Home key, and then navigate to and select News Briefing. Browse through the headlines, and tap an article to read it.
You can also tap More Options (three vertical dots) to select additional topics, a new region, refresh your news feed; or tap Show on phone to read the news on your phone.
