Once you’ve taken the screenshot, you’ll get a notification on your smartphone. You can then share the screenshot and send it directly to other people through Bluetooth, Gmail, WhatsApp, etc. or it can be saved directly on the cloud.

Screenshots taken on your smartwatch are directly imported to your image gallery, usually under the name “screen.png”. All that’s left is for you to change the image name to whatever you want!
