How to change the region on a Samsung Galaxy Watch

Note: This article was written as a half-finished draft in 2019 for Samsung’s Tizen-based Galaxy Watches. Samsung now uses Google’s Wear OS platform.

Download ‘SDB Starter Kit’: https://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=4338152&d=1511255266

Find the SDB binary for your platform, extract it to a folder, and open a CMD/Terminal in the directory

On the watch:

Go to Settings -> About watch -> Software and tap on “Software version” until you see “Developer mode turned on”

Go to Settings -> About watch -> Debugging -> Turn on

Go to Settings -> Connections -> Bluetooth -> Turn off

Go to Settings -> Connections -> WiFi -> Sign into the same network that your PC is connected to (if it’s in a loop of ‘Connecting’ and ‘Saved’, forget the network and log in again). Tap The network and scroll down to ‘IP Address’ and make a note of the IP

Turn off the watch (hold down home button) and then turn it back on

On the PC:

sdb shell (to allow Windows Firewall)

sdb connect 192.168.1.172:26101 (tap the checkmark on the watch, then run the command again to verify)

sdb shell

launch_app csc-manager.csc-verifier

Write down the current sales code for later, in case you want to revert the watch to its original state, then press the watch’s home button

launch_app csc-manager.csc-pre-configuration

(BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO ACCIDENTALLY TAP, BECAUSE IT WILL IMMEDIATELY RESET THE WATCH)

Scroll to the desired sales code (XAR is the one for the United States) and tap it

Set up the watch again.
