How To Find A Lost Samsung Smartwatch In 2023?
If you have lost your Samsung Smartwatch, you can use the Samsung Galaxy Wearable App on your smartphone.
All you will have to do is to go to your Samsung Galaxy Wearable App and follow these steps.
- Go to Galaxy Wearable App and go to the home section
- Now scroll down and Tap on “Find my Watch”
- If the watch is connected to your smartphone using Bluetooth, you will be able to ring it. So, before you ring it make sure that you turn off any electric appliances that make a sound and then ring it. In this way, you will be able to quickly hear the sound and locate your Galaxy Watch.
- If you are unable to find your lost Galaxy Watch, you can place the reactivation lock on the watch which will prevent anyone else from using your Galaxy Watch and they will need your Samsung ID and password to use the Watch.
- If your Samsung watch isn’t connected to your smartphone, you won’t get the ring option but you will get the last location of your Galaxy watch where it was connected to your smartphone for the last time. You can open the location on Google Maps or any other maps app and locate the Galaxy Watch.
The latest Galaxy Watches such as Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 5 come with WearOS 3 and which means that you can use Google Find My Device to locate your missing Galaxy Watch.
If you have lost your Galaxy Watch, go to android.com/find and there you will be able to see the last location of your Galaxy Watch.

How To Find My Samsung Galaxy Watch If It’s Dead?
Unlike Apple Find My Service, Samsung’s Find My Service is not robust and it comes with very basic tracking. If your Galaxy watch is connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth, you can ping it but if it isn’t connected, you can’t ping it. The only thing you will get from Samsung is the last known location.
If your Samsung Watch has gone dead, you will still get its last reported location but there’s a possibility that it might have been removed from that location.
So, if you have lost your Samsung smartwatch, the only thing you can do is to try to find it manually but if you still do not find it, you should report it to the police.
