If you’re selling your Samsung Galaxy Watch, or maybe it’s failing, it’s a good idea to reset it. This will return the watch to its factory settings and allow you or someone else to set it up from scratch.
“Factory Settings” means the watch will go back to the way it was when you took it out of the box. All your personal data and settings will be deleted. Since it’s just a watch, it might not matter as much as a phone, but it’s something to keep in mind.
Advice: Before you reset your watch, it’s a good idea to create a backup. You can do this from the Galaxy Wearable app by going to Accounts & Backup > Data Backup.

First, swipe down from the top of the watch face to see quick settings. Select the gear icon to open Settings.
Next, go to the “General” section.
If you haven’t backed up your watch yet, you’ll see the option to do so here. If not, select “Reset” again to confirm.
That’s all about it! This is a quick and easy process that can resolve minor performance issues, and is a must if you are selling or giving your watch to someone else.
