    Answer a few quick questions to evaluate your visit.

    Connecting to Wi-Fi®

    Your SmartWatch 3 supports Wi-Fi® and can automatically connect to saved Wi-Fi® networks when it loses a Bluetooth® connection with your Android™ phone or tablet. When your SmartWatch 3 is connected to a Wi-Fi® network, it can automatically stay synced with your phone or tablet as long as the phone or tablet is also connected to a Wi-Fi® network. So you can get notifications and use voice search on your SmartWatch 3 throughout your home or workplace when you leave your phone or tablet in a different room.

    You must first install the latest version of the Android Wear application on your Android™ phone or tablet.

    To turn Wi-Fi® on or off

    1. Make sure that the home screen is active on your SmartWatch 3.
    2. Swipe once from right to left.
    3. Tap Settings.
    4. Find and tap Wi-Fi Settings.
    5. If Wi-Fi Off is displayed, tap Wi-Fi Off to turn on Wi-Fi®. If Wi-Fi Automatic is displayed, tap Wi-Fi Automatic to turn off Wi-Fi®.

    If Wi-Fi® is activated on your SmartWatch 3, your SmartWatch 3 automatically connects to any known, available network when your SmartWatch 3 does not have a Bluetooth® connection to your Android™ phone or tablet.

    Turning off Wi-Fi® can extend your battery life.

    To connect to a preferred Wi-Fi® network

    1. Make sure that the home screen is active on your SmartWatch 3.
    2. Swipe once from right to left.
    3. Tap Settings.
    4. Find and tap Wi-Fi Settings.
    5. Make sure that Wi-Fi® is set to Wi-Fi Automatic.
    6. Scroll down through the available networks, then select the network that you want to connect to.

    Your SmartWatch 3 cannot connect to Wi-Fi® networks that take you to a login page before you can connect, for example, Wi-Fi® networks at places like hotels or cafés.

    Your SmartWatch 3 automatically chooses the best available Wi-Fi® network.

    To forget a known network

    1. Make sure that the home screen is active on your SmartWatch 3.
    2. Swipe once from right to left.

    8. Tap to confirm.

    Disabling Wi-Fi® to extend battery life

    If the Wi-Fi® function is using a lot of battery power, it may get turned off automatically and the message "Wi-Fi® disabled to extend battery life" appears. How fast your battery drains depends on how much you use your SmartWatch 3 while it's connected to Wi-Fi®. You can disable the message via the notification settings.

    The Wi-Fi® function switches on again automatically when your SmartWatch 3 is recharged.

    To turn off notifications

    You can also block notifications directly on your SmartWatch 3.

    By turning off unnecessary notifications, you save battery power when using Wi-Fi®.

    To change how much battery Wi-Fi® can use before it's turned off

    1. Make sure that the home screen is active on your SmartWatch 3.
    2. Swipe once from right to left.
