Customize the double press key feature on your Samsung smart watch

Customize the press button feature on a Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 smart watch

Your watch is designed to be both beautiful and practical. One of the handiest features on your watch that you may not be aware of is the Double press key feature. With it, you can program the Home key to open a certain app! Yep, you can enjoy this useful feature and still enjoy your watch's minimal design.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, phone, or watch.

Use the Double press key feature

All of us have that one app we use way more than any others. Customize your watch so you'll get instant access to your favorite app when you double press the Home key.

On your watch, navigate to Settings. Swipe to and tap Advanced, and then tap Double press Home key. You can swipe to and select what you want the key to launch. You can even tap None to turn off the feature.

Now whenever you double press the Home key, your selected app will launch.
