In this tutorial, we’ll go over Samsung Galaxy watch configuration. All versions of the original Samsung Galaxy smartwatch are covered by the instructions. How to download apps and locate your watch is covered in more detail.
Set up a Samsung Galaxy Watch
The first thing to do after removing your watch from the packaging is to charge it with the wireless charging dock that came with it. The watch charges when the LED indicator is red; when it turns green, it is fully charged. A screen lock for your watch is an option that you can set up.
Tap Settings > Security > Lock > Type after turning the watch bezel to the left or right. Next, choose whether you want to use a pattern, PIN, or no screen lock at all. You can play games, track your workouts, receive notifications, and more after setting up your Galaxy Watch.
How to Pair a Galaxy Watch with A Smartphone
Install the Galaxy Wearable app, which works with devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop or later, to connect your smartwatch to an Android phone. Users of iPhones must download the Galaxy Wear app for iOS 9.0 and later.
- Open the app on your phone, then select the watch you want to wear.
- To give the required permissions, tap Allow.
- The screen shows a request for Bluetooth pairing. If your watch is found, choose it. The watch shows you a brief tutorial after you’ve successfully synced your devices so you can become comfortable with its functionality.

By turning the watch bezel to the left or right, go to Galaxy Apps or the Play Store to download Galaxy Watch apps. The following applications are already preinstalled on your device:
- Control smart home appliances from your watch with SmartThings.

Additionally, you may download a variety of watch faces from Galaxy Apps. To choose a watch face that is already loaded or to download a new one, touch and hold the watch face. To modify the watch face to your desire, tap Customize.
