Universal Gestures feature offers users a valuable alternative to the interactions needed to operate the device. With four distinct gestures – Make Fist, Make Fist Twice, Pinch, and Double Pinch – users can navigate their Galaxy Watch in ways that work best for them.

How to Turn On Universal Gestures

To activate Universal Gestures on the Galaxy Watch, follow these simple steps:

Once the Universal Gestures feature is enabled, your Galaxy Watch will indicate it with a customizable colored outline, allowing you to utilize this intuitive mode for a tailored and accessible experience.

Make Fist to Open Action Menu and Select

Within Universal Gestures, the Make Fist gesture simplifies the process of selecting and opening items on the Galaxy Watch.

Make Fist Twice gesture unveils the Action menu, which is an array of convenient options accessible right from your wrist. Imagine this menu as a toolbox packed with essential tools, such as opening the apps menu, going to the previous screen and displaying recent apps.

The Action menu is also dynamic, adjusting its content based on whichever screen is currently open when the user activates the Action menu. When you are ready to select the item, simply make a fist.

Pinch to Navigate Back and Forth

The Pinch and Double Pinch gestures on the Galaxy Watch offer new touch-free ways for users to interact with their Galaxy Watch, which are especially beneficial for individuals facing mobility limitations. With these two gestures, you can navigate from one item to another or go back to the previous item.

Scroll through your messages, browse your calendar items or peruse your photo album – these are all made possible with the Pinch gesture.

Accessibility is about removing barriers and delivering seamless experiences to everyone. For instance, Galaxy users can easily change any of the actions of these four gestures, further personalizing their device to better serve their needs.

Another Notable Galaxy Watch Control Feature

The Galaxy Watch’s Gestures, located within Advanced features, is another standout feature that offers a convenient shortcut for actions — answering calls, dismissing alerts or swiftly launching apps — all achievable through simple hand and arm motions.
