How to receive and respond to Gmail notifications on a Samsung Galaxy Watch

Want to view and manage your Gmail notifications on your Galaxy Watch? Here is how to do it.

Gmail notifications are disabled by default when you pair your Samsung Galaxy Watch with your phone. Also, Gmail doesn’t have a standalone app for WearOS. For these reasons, you will not be able to receive or reply to your emails from your watch.
