Step-by-step instructions on how to restart a Samsung Galaxy Watch.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is a smartwatch that runs Samsung’s Tizen operating system. You can use the watch to control your smartphone, as well as other connected devices, and you can receive alerts on the watch. You can also use the watch to make and receive phone calls, send and receive messages, and access some social media apps.

To restart a Samsung Galaxy Watch, follow these steps:

What is the procedure for restarting my Samsung Galaxy Watch?

You have two options if your Samsung Galaxy Watch is acting up and you need to restart it. In the power options, you can turn the watch off or force a reboot with the physical watch buttons.

Because the first technique turns the watch off, you must manually turn it back on to complete the restarting procedure. The second technique starts a reboot sequence, which causes the watch to shut down and restart on its own.

Here’s how to use the menus to reset your Galaxy watch:

How to Restart a Samsung Galaxy Watch

  • From the primary watch face, swipe down.
  • Press the power button.
  • Turn off the tap.
  • Press and hold the physical Home button to turn the watch back on.
  • When the watch display turns on, release the Home button.

How Do You Force Restart a Samsung Galaxy Watch?

  • On your watch, press and hold the physical Home and Back buttons.

Note: If that doesn’t work, try pressing and holding the Home button alone. This approach is used by several Samsung watches, such as the Galaxy Watch Active and Active 2.

  • When the power screen appears, keep pressing the buttons.

Note: This screen may not appear if your watch screen is frozen. In that scenario, keep pressing the buttons until the screen goes black and a rebooting message appears.

  • Release the Home and Back buttons when the screen turns black, and your watch will restart automatically.

What’s the Difference Between a Galaxy Watch Restart and a Galaxy Watch Reset?

You effectively switch your Samsung Galaxy Watch off and on when you restart it. None of your settings or data are lost because the watch is still connected to your phone. Both methods of resetting accomplish the same goal, however, one requires you to manually switch the watch back on while the other automatically reboot it. Many difficulties, such as sluggish performance, delayed reaction, and a frozen display, can be resolved by restarting a Samsung Galaxy Watch.

Factory resetting, commonly known as resetting a Galaxy Watch, returns the watch to its original state. You can either use the Galaxy Wearable app on your phone or the watch itself to reset a Samsung Galaxy Watch. You must set up your Galaxy Watch the same way you did when you initially acquired it after a reset.

Resetting a Galaxy Watch can solve some major issues, but if you don’t back up your watch before doing so, you’ll lose all of your settings and data. Before you can pair a Galaxy Watch with a new phone, sell it, or give it away, you’ll need to reset it.
