Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 Tips and Tricks or Hidden Features

#1. Setup Good Night Mode (Do Not Disturb)

Much like toggling apps on and off, you may have times that you don’t want to hear anything out of the Galaxy Watch. Like while you’re asleep for instance. Samsung has taken this into consideration and including a Do Not Disturb option, and another, called Good Night Mode.

  • Open Wearable app
  • Scroll and find Advanced
  • Find Good Night Mode
  • Toggle on or off for manually notification shutoffs

You can also schedule times with the traditional Do Not Disturb Mode

  • Open Wearable app
  • Advanced
  • Do Not Disturb
  • Manually toggle or set a scheduled times

#2. Pick a Watch Face

Another great thing about having a smartwatch is the customizations. Samsung’s default offerings for watch faces is fairly robust and you can download even more. You can also set custom colors and widgets on each face.

  • Open the Wearable app
  • Tap the Watch Faces tab at the top
  • Choose the watch face that you prefer
  • Choose the customize button to further change the watch face
  • Save the watch face

#3. Always-on screen mode

Something you still can’t do on an Apple Watch is keep the screen on at all times. On Samsung smartwatches it’s an entirely different story. Doing this will inevitably impact battery life, so that’s something to keep in mind. If you’re happy to take that battery hit, there’s a couple of ways to turn it on. The easiest way to do it is from the quick settings menu, which you can access by swiping down from the main watch screen.

  • Tap the cog icon, which will push you into the settings
  • And the first option in settings will be Watch faces.
  • Tap on that menu
  • Scroll down to Watch always on then tap to turn on or off.

#4. Take a picture of your screen

If for any reason you feel the need to capture a screen on your smartwatch, the way to do this is to swipe right on the screen while at the same time pressing the Home button (the bottom right physical button) to take a screenshot. It’s quite fiddly to do and you may end up opening the Power off screen the first few times. The pics are stored in the Gallery app on the watch, and to view the screen captures you’ll have to manually transfer these to your phone. Unfortunately, this isn’t a feature iPhone owners can make use of.

#5. Auto open apps

We don’t know how useful this will be to everyone, but Samsung has included the ability to launch apps automatically simply by navigating to them. So when you’re inside of the app tray and the indicator is pointing to a certain app, it’ll launch it without an additional tap. It’s turned off by default, so you’ll need to go into the settings and into the Apps menu and look for Auto open apps. Tap it to turn the feature on and it should now start to work.
