Change the input language on your Samsung smart watch
We live in a world filled with different languages. Some people can even speak more than one! If you wish, you can change the input language on your Samsung smart watch at any time. This includes the language settings for the keyboard, voice input, and Bixby, the watch's voice assistant.
Note: Available features, menu options, and settings will vary by the watch and software version. Changing the input language does not change the language displayed on your watch, and each input setting will need to be changed individually.
Change the Voice Assistant input language
Want to speak to Bixby in Spanish? Just change input language your watch for the Voice Assistant.
From the watch's Home screen, press the Power key, and then swipe to tap Bixby or S-Voice. Tap More options (the three vertical dots), and then tap the Language icon. Swipe to and choose the language you want.
Note: If you change the voice assistant input language on your watch, it will only be applied to Bixby or S Voice.
Change the Voice input language
Typing on your watch's small screen can be difficult, especially if you have big fingers. Just use Voice input to type with your voice instead.
From the watch's Home screen, press the Power key, and then swipe to tap Messages. While composing a new message, tap Voice input (the blue microphone icon). Tap More options (the three vertical dots), and then tap the Input languages icon. Swipe to choose the voice input language you want.
Note: If you change the Voice input language, it will only be applied when you enter text with Voice input.
Change the Keyboard input language
Need to change the input language for the keyboard on your watch? You can select or download different languages for text input.
From the watch's Home screen, press the Power key, and then swipe to tap Settings. You can also swipe down the Status panel, and then tap the Settings icon. Next, swipe to and tap General > Input, and then tap Keyboard settings. Swipe to tap Input Languages, and then tap More options. Select Languages, and then tap the switch next to the desired input language.
Under the Available item section, you can tap your desired keyboard language to download. However, only two keyboard languages can be used at a time. To switch between keyboard languages, swipe left or right on the space bar of the keyboard.
Note: If you change the Keyboard language, it will only be applied when you enter text on the keyboard.
