I have the galaxy watch active 2 and just love it.. .except for one annoying trait. The notification animation that plays for every single notification is to long and annoying. i would love to be able to quickly glance down and see the notification text like you can on Wear OS watches, instead of having to wait for the animation to complete. It's just really not necessary.
Is there a way to disable it or at least speed it up (like in developer options on android phones) ? If not, Samsung, please allow us to disable this in a future update! The less animations there are, the faster the watch runs.
This is indeed a major dissapointment for me. My 30 euros honor band delivers notifications faster and smoother than my 400 euros GWA 2. Samsung, it is not that hard to add the option to disable notification annimations. This will greatly improve user experience.
I came here to say the same thing. I bought this watch so I could quickly see and respond to messages while at work, not sit around on my patio and lethargicaly stare at the pretty animations.
Thank you for your interest in sharing your idea with Samsung. We appreciate your feedback and will tag it on the forum so that it will appear with other feedback, ideas, and requests. This will allow your post to be more easily found in the event that Samsung product groups are seeking outside feedback/requests/ideas regarding our products.
Please update us on the latest regarding this, It is so annoying to wait for the animation to go away.
Could you tell us when to expect a software update and if that we can toggle the animation off?
