Naturally, with these applications on your Galaxy Active 2, you will be able to extend the functionality of these watches. For example, this watch does not allow you to add reminders for drinking water, although it does have a water metering widget. The same goes for voice memos. Although it has a speaker, you cannot add voice notes in native mode.
This is when third-party apps arrive on the photos. From taking notes to reminders at fixed intervals and tracking your errands, these apps improve the functionality of your smart watch.
But the main question is – how to add apps to Samsung Galaxy Active 2? Well, that is what we are going to find out in this article today. Let's start.
How to install apps on Galaxy Active 2
Step 1: Open the Galaxy Wearable app on your phone. If you are using a non-Samsung device and this is the first time accessing this application, you will need to create a Samsung ID to pass.
After that tap on the Discover tab at the bottom, tap on the header and you will be transported to the Galaxy Store.
2nd step: Tap the three-dot menu in the upper right corner and choose Applications from the list.
Now press the Install button and the app will be installed in an instant. All you have to do is unlock the Active 2, launch the app from the app launcher and start up.
Depending on the type of app, you may also need to install a companion app on the smart watch.
Manage applications on the Galaxy Active 2
Installing apps on the Samsung Galaxy Active 2 is not a one-way street. You can easily uninstall them and organize them according to your preferences. All you need to know is how to do it.
To rearrange and organize the apps, go to the Wearable app on your phone and tap Apps. Then tap Rearrange and drag the icons to the location you want.
The mantra is simple – keep the apps you use frequently on the first screen and push the others to the next screen.
After making all the changes, just tap Save to finalize the deal.
Pro tip: You can also organize the applications in the form of a list by selecting Layout> List. The downside of this process is that you cannot rearrange the icons according to your preferences.
To uninstall apps on this smart watch, tap Manage apps on the Apps screen. Just tap the Minus icon to delete the respective apps.
3 best free apps for the Samsung Galaxy Active 2
1. Voice memo
If you like to take impromptu notes, the Voice Memo app is one of the best apps for you. What makes this app special is that it not only helps you take notes, but also transfers these notes to your phone seamlessly. Yes, you read correctly.
The voice memo is simple and direct to use. Just press a button and the voice recorder will start recording. In addition, all old records are accessible from your smartwatch at the touch of a button.
I often use this app. The only thing you need to keep in mind is to delete all the old records.
2. Task manager
If taking voice notes doesn't seem like a seamless option, you should definitely give the ToDo Manager app a try. As the name suggests, it helps you create simple tasks.
This app comes with a T9 mini keyboard (yes, like the Nokia 1100) using which you can add text and description to your task.
To install this app, search for the app in the Galaxy Store and install it.
3. A camera
OneCamera is a nifty little app that lets you turn your smartwatch into a small remote control for your camera. This application is very useful in large gatherings.
For this, you need to have the apps in your watch and your phone. When the time comes, you need to trigger it on your phone to capture a picture.
The only problem is that the app takes a little while to connect to the app on your phone. On the upside, the synchronization is fairly transparent.
Get the most out of your smart watch
With the right third-party apps by your side, you can maximize the potential of your smartwatch by many folds. Plus, add a few songs to the mix, and you'll have a really smart gadget on your lap … I mean, the wrist.
