Use Google Calendar on your watch

You can use Google Calendar with your Wear OS watch to:

  • Check your schedule and tasks
  • Get notified of events and tasks
  • Complete tasks
  • Respond to events
  • Delete events and tasks

You can find event and tasks details for Google Accounts added to your watch. You will receive notifications for events and tasks even when your watch is not connected to your phone.

When your watch and phone are connected, you receive a notification on your watch for any event or task added to Google Calendar on your phone.

Important:

  • Internet connection on your watch is required to sync new data.
  • Google Calendar is different from Agenda, which is a view-only calendar app and tile built into Wear OS.
  • Google Calendar is replacing Agenda from Wear OS 4 onward.
  • Google Calendar on Wear OS doesn't support certain phone-based features like:
    • Work Profile or Managed Workspace accounts
    • Non-Google accounts
  • You can view events from multiple Google accounts in Calendar when you add them to your watch.
  • Google Calendar on Wear OS supports bridged notifications for phone-based events and tasks.
