That's all the steps needed to take a screenshot on your Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. Now that you've taken captured the screen you want — where does it go? Well, now that Samsung's latest smartwatch is running the new Wear OS 3, which it co-developed with Google, those screenshots will go directly into your Google Photos. So, when you are ready to share your screenshots, you'll know where to find those images.

The new Galaxy Watch 4 lineup has many new things to check out regardless of whether you are coming from a previous generation Galaxy watch that ran Tizen or another Wear OS device. To help you get started, we've put together a helpful list of eight things to do on your new smartwatch.

Even though these watches have excellent water resistance ratings and are also durable with their MIL-STD-810G certification, the screen is still glass — and that stuff breaks.

Not only does this help to ensure your watch stays in working order, but also so that you can see what you want to screenshot clearly.
