    Default What shortcuts do you keep on your home screen?

    For me the most useful configuration of my Gear 2 is the clockface with three shortcuts on the home screen. This gives me quick access to information as well as the ability to fire off four apps with just a 'flick of the wrist and touch of a button.' Feels very James Bond-like, I suppose.

    I'm curious what other folks have configured as their most-used apps?

    Currently I have shortcuts to Notifications (which of course includes the counter if I miss any), Schedule, and Pedometer. My double-press is set to Camera, but I never use the camera on my Gear so that's a candidate for replacement.

    How are you configured, if you rely on the interface the way I've described?

    My double press is S voice because it's SO accurate on this that I can use it reliably. I have pedometer, notifications and "apps" as my shortcuts. I change my wallpaper daily to match my outfit #girlthing

    Shortcuts for easy access to volume and brightness (keep it on lower brightness while inside to save battery)
    Messages since I text a good bit
    Notifications - might change this out...becomes overwhelming when receiving a billion work emails during the day. I basically know there will always be an unread e-mail waiting for me in my inbox. Might change this up to the Infrared blaster...been using that on my samsung tv for on/off and volume...
    Double-tap is to the media controller for when i'm listening to tunes on my commute.

    You can get rid of/replace the "Controls" shortcut and just double tap the screen with two fingers(works on any screen), if you're so inclined. Will make room for the IR blaster....

    You have to do it in Gear Manager on your phone:
    Clock>(click the gear to the right of)Shortcut Clock>Shortcut application1, 2, 3.
    You may have to do some "fox, chicken, chicken food across the river" to organize them the way you want

    I have:

    The two first because I'm afraid of missing somesthing.

    Double-press the button is the camera.

    The developer of Multi-Watch has been so kind as to add the feature of a 3x3 shortcut panel (1 being reserved for flashlight) from any custom watch face. It's accessible by swiping up from the app when it's selected as your clock. It's by far one of the most essential and useful apps for our watches available.
