How to backup data of your Galaxy Watch Active

If you want to save a backup of your Galaxy Watch Active data, you need to pair the watch to a mobile. Backups can’t be initiated from the watch itself so if you’re using the phone offline (not paired with a phone), the steps in this guide won’t help.

Before we proceed, we want to remind you that if you are looking for solutions to your own #Android or #Fitbit issue, you can contact us by using the link provided at the bottom of this page. When describing your issue, please be as detailed as possible so we can easily pinpoint a relevant solution. If you can, kindly include the exact error messages you are getting to give us an idea where to start. If you have already tried some troubleshooting steps before emailing us, make sure to mention them so we can skip them in our answers.
