How to Take a Screenshot on your Samsung Galaxy Watch Device

Galaxy watch screenshot

Just like with smartphones, smartwatches allow you to take screenshots of whatever is happening at that point in time. This guide, in particular, is all about how to take a screenshot on your Samsung Galaxy Watch device!

However, it’s keeping in mind that screenshots may not work in certain apps. You can experiment around on your own and see if it works on what you need it on. So, without any further ado, let us get right into it!


First Method: Button Combination

The first and probably the easiest method of capturing a screenshot is by using the button plus gesture combination. All you have to do is: 

  1. Hold down the home button
  2. And swipe from the left side of the screen to the right

Just don’t hold the home button down for extended periods of time as that will bring up the recent apps.

After taking a screenshot, you get the option of sending it to the paired phone or deleting it. This should work on the Galaxy Watch, Watch Active 2, and the Gear S3 as well. 

And if it doesn’t work, which it should, consider trying one of our alternative methods. 

Second Method: Use Notification Bar

If you pull down the notification bar, you should see a few shortcuts/quick actions. One of them is the screenshot icon. 

So, all you have to do is pull down the notification bar to bring up the quick actions then tap on the screenshot button. 

Third: Use a Voice Assistant

Did you know that you can use either Bixby or the Google Assistant to get a screenshot on your smartphone? The same should apply to Galaxy Watch devices and whether you go with Bixby or Google’s voice assistant is up to you. 

All you have to do is bring up the voice assistant of your choice and say “Take a screenshot”.

If you haven’t used any of them before, then you’ll have to manually open them first, give them all the permissions they need, and set them up. You also have the option of bringing up Bixby by using the “Hi, Bixby” voice command after activating it. Just like you would on a Samsung smartphone. 

There is hardly a superior pick here. While most people seem to prefer Google’s assistant, Bixby will work just as well and it’s also pre-installed anyway. 

Though, it’s worth noting that such features may have an impact on your battery life.
