How to Use Google Maps on Samsung Galaxy Watch?

No Google Maps App available for Samsung Galaxy smartwatches. However, you can still use Google Maps on a Samsung Galaxy watch, let’s see how…

Google Maps can be very useful on your smartwatch while traveling or going to a camp, but we don’t know why Samsung Galaxy smartwatches don’t include native integration with Google Maps. Maybe because of the small screen that can’t show the full map?

Fortunately, there are a handful of apps that bring Google Maps integration to Samsung Galaxy Watches. These apps don’t browse a map overview but typically focus on turn-by-turn navigation.
