I love the google voice assistant, since you can do so many different things with that one. You can either scroll left and press the mic to activate it. Press the middle button for a second or just hide google, but be sure to toggle on the ok, google detection first. Otherwise that wont work with the google voice assistant. You cannot only search for stuff on the internet, but you can also set a timer start. A workout call. Your friends. Do some similar math, like what is 16 of 1 786 easy stuff right.

You can also do a little bit of customization like turn on or off the always on screen mode to save some extra battery life. The extender mode only turns on the essential features when you need them, and therefore you only have to charge the watch every few days and the third mode is the time only mode which really turns off all the fun features of your smartwatch.
