Use a Samsung Galaxy Watch to record your Tours? Well, we’ve added a brand-new ‘companion mode’ for your device, which allows you to better use your watch in sync with the komoot mobile app. With this new release, your watch will display komoot’s turn by turn navigation instructions after starting navigation on your phone. This allows you to see where you need to go at a glance while saving both your watch and phone battery. Need more info? Due to the two devices now working in sync, you can quickly take a look at your phone to benefit from the bigger map and the richer detail. Standalone mode, which allows you to navigate and track Tours without being connected to your phone, is still available on your watch.
To set up companion mode, simply enable Bluetooth on both your smartphone and your Galaxy Watch and connect in the komoot app under Settings > Bluetooth Connect > Samsung Galaxy Watch.
