How to Easily 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 and power button at the same time. However, taking a screenshot on the Galaxy watch is not quite as obvious. Here, you have to hold down the Home Button and swipe from left to right. Let's dive into the details.

First things first, make sure you have paired your Galaxy Watch with an Android phone. If you need help with pairing your Galaxy Watch with your smartphone, check out our previous article. Unfortunately, there is no official method to send your screenshots directly to your iPhone from the Galaxy Watch.

How to Take a Screenshot on the Galaxy Watch and Gear S3

Wake your Galaxy Watch and look for the Home button (it's the button on the bottom right). Navigate to the screen whose screenshot you want to take. Once you're there, press and hold the Home button and swipe the touchscreen from left to right.

This may take some practice, but once you get the hang of it, you'll be able to take a screenshot with just one hand. Take a look at the illustration below if you feel confused. The screen will flash, and you will hear the sound of a camera's shutter.

Unlike the Apple Watch, which automatically syncs the screenshot to the Photos app on the iPhone, you will have to manually transfer the screenshot from your Galaxy Watch to your Android phone.

The screenshots taken on the watch are stored in the Gallery app on your smartphone, and you can access them by navigating through the Watch menu.

To send the screenshots to your smartphone, press the Home key, touch the Next page icon, and then touch the Gallery icon. Touch and hold the screenshot you want to transfer, and tap the options button (three vertical dots) on the screen.

In the options menu, you will see two icons: Delete and Send to Phone. Tap the Send to Phone icon, and the copying process will begin. Depending on the number of images you're copying, it might take a few seconds.

As the files are copied to the smartphone, you can see them begin to show up in the Watch folder on the phone.

To include additional screenshots in the transfer, rotate the bezel and touch the screenshots you want to include. If you want to send all the screenshots, tap on the number and select all.

You can view the screenshots by navigating to the Gallery and tapping the Galaxy Watch folder.

Taking a screenshot on the Galaxy Watch is easy, although the choice of gesture could be refined. Right now, there is no way to send the screenshots to your iPhone from the Galaxy Watch. We will keep searching for a solution and update the article. Let us know if you find a way before us.
