There is a standalone komoot app for Samsung watches. It will allow you to navigate Tours that you plan on komoot, as well as record Tours, using your Samsung watch. For an overview of the devices we support, please refer to this article: Samsung devices compatible with komoot.
Installing the komoot app
When you first buy your Samsung watch, you need to activate it. It can be paired with an Android device, an iPhone or, if it has a SIM card slot, be activated as an LTE watch by itself. More information on how to do this can be found in Samsung’s help documentation.
Once your watch is activated, you can download the komoot app for Samsung devices by opening this link on your phone. You can also download the app directly from the watch, by opening the main menu and selecting the Galaxy Store.
When the app is downloaded, you will get prompted to log in with a code. Open the komoot website on a browser, log into your profile, type in komoot.com/connect in the URL field in your browser and enter the code that’s displayed on your watch.
Navigating a planned Tour
Once you’re logged in, you will see a list of your planned Tours on your watch. To start a navigation, click on “Planned Tours” and select the Tour you would like to navigate. Tours are automatically listed based on date and cannot be filtered based on other aspects.
When the navigation starts, you will see turn-by-turn instructions on the watch. Swipe to the left to access more information about the Tour, like your current and average speed, the elevation profile, and distance. Voice navigation is not supported. If you would like voice navigation during your Tour, please use the komoot app on your phone for the navigation.
You can also download the Tour on your watch to have offline navigation available. This will let you use the navigation without the watch being connected to the internet or to your phone.
The navigation will continue running in the background even if the display of the watch is turned off or if you switch to another app. To get back to the navigation screen, open the komoot app and the Tour again.
Recording a Tour
To record a Tour (without having planned it), you can simply select the “Record a Tour” option in the komoot app on the watch. Swipe to the left to see information about the distance you’ve travelled and your speed. When you’re done, you can save the Tour and select the sports type. The Tour will then be uploaded to your komoot profile as soon as the watch has internet access.
