How to Take Screenshots on Samsung Galaxy Watch And Gear S3.
Taking screenshots on a Samsung smartphone (or any Android) is quite intuitive. All you have to do is press the volume down button and the power button at the same time. However, taking a screenshot on a Galaxy watch isn’t entirely obvious. Here you have to hold the Home button and slide your finger from left to right. Let’s take a closer look at this.
First things first, make sure you have paired your Galaxy Watch with your Android phone. If you need help pairing your Galaxy Watch with your smartphone, check out our previous article. Unfortunately, there is no official method to send screenshots directly to iPhone from Galaxy Watch.
Take a screenshot on the Galaxy Watch and Gear S3
Wake up your Galaxy Watch and find the Home button (located in the lower right corner). Navigate to the screen you want to capture, then press and hold the Home button and swipe from left to right on the touchscreen.
This may take some practice, but once you do, you should be able to take a screenshot with one hand. Take a look at the illustration below if you are confused. The screen will flash and you will hear the sound of the camera shutter.
Unlike the Apple Watch, which automatically syncs the screenshot with the Photos apps on the iPhone, you’ll have to manually transfer the screenshot from your Galaxy watch to your Android phone.
Screenshots taken on the watch are stored in the Gallery app on your smartphone, and you can access them by going through the watch menu.
Press the Home key to send the screenshot to your smartphone. Tap the Next Page icon, then tap the Gallery icon, tap and hold the screenshot you want to share, and tap the options button (three vertical dots) on the screen.
It will show you an options menu with two icons: Delete and send to phone, click the icon and it should start copying. This may take a few seconds depending on the number of copied images.
As the files are copied to the smartphone, you can see them start to appear in the Watch folder on the phone.
To include additional screenshots in the transfer, rotate the bezel and tap the screenshots you want to include. If you want to send all screenshots, please click to the number and select everything.
You can view screenshots by going to Gallery and tapping the Galaxy Watch folder.
Capturing a screenshot on the Galaxy Watch is easy, and I agree that the choice of gesture can be refined. There is currently no way to send screenshots to iPhone from Galaxy Watch. I will search for a solution and update the article. Let us know if you find a way to get ahead of us.
