Adjusting the screen brightness on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 is simple once users know all the ways to do it, and have figured out which one is most suitable for them. Samsung released the Watch 5 with three other devices: the Galaxy Fold 4, Galaxy Flip 4, and Galaxy Buds 2 Pro. Although the Galaxy Watch 5 has been available for quite some time, the recent launch of the Galaxy S23 series has boosted the sales of the smartwatch. Samsung also provides exclusive offers to users who purchase a Galaxy S23 with a Galaxy Watch 5.
There are two ways to adjust screen brightness on the Galaxy Watch 5 which are applicable for all variants. The first method involves setting the screen brightness on the watch itself. Wake up the Galaxy Watch 5’s screen, swipe up from the bottom, and select the ‘Settings‘ icon. Scroll down and tap on the ‘Display‘ settings option. On the following screen, tap the circular brightness indicator and use the on-screen dial to increase or decrease the brightness. The dial also responds to Galaxy Watch 5’s rotating bezel. Once done, swipe from the left of the screen to head back to the previous menu or press the home key.
Adjust Brightness Via The Watch Or Galaxy Wearable App
Alternatively, one can swipe down on the home screen to open the quick settings section and tap the brightness icon (represented by a sun with a circle around it) to adjust the brightness quickly. The second way is via the Galaxy Wearable app. Open the app on the companion smartphone and tap ‘Watch Settings.‘ Then hit ‘Display‘ and adjust the brightness on the following screen by dragging the brightness slider left or right. The updated settings reflect instantly on the Galaxy Watch 5, whether users do it via the watch or the smartphone app.
However, what if someone doesn’t want to adjust the screen brightness repeatedly? Thanks to its ambient light sensor, the Galaxy Watch 5 can adjust its screen’s brightness automatically. To see whether the feature is on, head to the Settings app on the watch and hit the Display option, then check the toggle switch beside ‘Auto brightness.‘ Although the smartwatch’s sensor isn’t as responsive as that on phones, it changes the brightness just in time.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 has one of the most beautiful displays on a smartwatch. It flaunts a vibrant 1.4-inch Super AMOLED panel with a 60Hz refresh rate. Further, the Galaxy Watch 5 screen’s brightness can go all the way up to 1,000 nits, which is equivalent to most modern-day flagships. This makes it legible even in direct sunlight. The minimum brightness level is softer on the eyes in rooms with less or no light. Moreover, the Galaxy Watch 5 is the best smartwatch to use with the latest Galaxy S23 devices or other Android phones.
