Did you know that you can use your Galaxy Watch to take screenshots of your apps and watch faces? This is a great way to capture high-quality images that you can use to promote your content, and it only takes a few seconds of your time. Read the instructions below for details, or if you’re the visual type, watch the short video.

How To Take A Galaxy Watch Screenshot

  1. Swipe the screen of your watch face from left to right while holding down the bottom right button. You’ll see a small version of your screenshot fly off toward the top of the screen.
  2. Go to the Gallery app on the watch and tap the three dots on the right-hand side of the screen.
  3. Choose the icon of a phone with an arrow and tap [Send].
  4. On your phone, open the Gallery app and locate your screenshot.

If you are unable to take a screenshot, make sure that the screen capture functionality is set to On. To do this, on your watch go to [Settings] > [Advanced] > [Screen capture] and change the setting to On.
