The Samsung Galaxy Fit e is one of the basic fitness trackers. With a svelte design, a swim-proof design and a range of features like heart rate and sleep tracking, the Galaxy Fit e is the company's foray into the affordable wearable tech market. So if you've recently purchased this fitness band, here are some of the best tips and tricks to get the most out of it.Contents1. Rearrange the widgets on the screen2. Edit Notifications3.

Because this fitness tracker is pretty basic, you can tweak most settings and features through its companion app named Galaxy Wearable. And the good news is that once you connect your phone to the band, accessing these settings is effortless.
So, without further ado, let's get started.
The Samsung Galaxy Fit e's widgets are quite efficient and allow you to see all the basic things like calendar, weather, steps, etc. However, if you only want to use it to track your fitness level, it doesn't make sense. to have other widgets like calendar and weather on the group.
Fortunately, there is a way to remove (or add) widgets. All you have to do is open the Galaxy Wearable band and tap on Widgets. Next, tap the little cross icon next to the widgets you want to remove. That's it. Widgets will be removed instantly.
Since the Galaxy Fit e doesn't let you swipe, there's no way to quickly reach your most frequented widget. Therefore, it makes sense to rearrange them as per your convenience.
All you have to do is long press the cards and drag them to the position you want.
In my case, the Galaxy Fit e fitness band shows notifications for more than 14 apps. From missed call alerts to email alerts and Instagram notifications, it constantly alerts and distracts me.
Fortunately, there is a way to only allow important notifications on the group. To do this, go to the Notifications card> Manage notifications and turn off the switches for the apps you don't want.
A quick workaround is to flip the switch twice for all apps. Once done, enable notification only for the apps you want. Short and simple.
At the same time, you can also schedule a Do Not Disturb time through Advanced Settings.
Screen brightness is one of the latest features of the Galaxy Fit e band. As the name suggests, you can use it to change the screen brightness. And the best part is that the change is visible in real time. Apart from that, you can also adjust the screen timeout.
At the time of writing, the Galaxy Fit e allows you to set a timeout between 3 seconds and 15 seconds.
You'll find these settings under Display in the Wearable app.
At the same time, you can program the screen to turn off for a defined period of time. To add these changes, go to Advanced Settings> Screen Dimming and toggle the switch to Enable as expected.
Enter the time and day, and that's it! Simple, see.
The best part about owning a smart fitness tracker (or smartwatch) is that you can switch between different watch faces whenever you feel like it. Just tap the one you like and it will sync with the band (or watch) almost immediately.
When it comes to the Galaxy Fit e, you can choose between 20 different watch faces. While some faces have prioritized health or heart rate, the other shows a glimpse of all of the above.
To switch to a face you like, tap the Watch Face tab at the bottom, select one and voila! Your fitness band will reflect the new change almost immediately.
Again, the Galaxy Fit e is not one of the conventional fitness bands. It does things a little differently, and the heart rate measurement process is no different either.
Since the device isn't touch-enabled, you'll need to use a series of taps to access the heart rate widget. Once there, pause on the screen to trigger the heart rate monitor.
Do you often misplace your group? If so, you might find the Find my Band feature very handy. This makes the bracelet vibrate, and helps you locate it easily.
You'll find this setting under the Find my Band card and tap Start.
However, if you've placed it on a padded surface, chances are you'll have trouble locating it.
Want to see updated weather reports on your group? By default, the Galaxy Fit e pulls weather information from your phone and is scheduled to update every 6 hours.
To change this to a more frequent interval, you need to change your phone's Weather settings. To do this, go to Weather> Settings and tap on the Auto-refresh option.
Then choose the option Every 3 hours or Every hour.
By default, the bracelet turns on when you lift your wrist. However, you can also choose to wake it up with a tap.
To do this, open the Wearable app and go to advanced settings. Once done, tap on Screen Wake and select Both.
Finally, change the party's health settings. From customizing step counts to enabling dynamic workout detection, almost every health setting can be customized to your preference.
To do this, tap on Health settings and head to the Health detection and notifications option.
These are some of the best Samsung Galaxy Fit e tips and tricks. If you have a Samsung phone, all app requirements are that the plugins are supported by the Wearable app itself. However, if you have a non-Samsung phone, you may need to install several different plugins.
