Hi,
Is there a way of performing an antivirus scan on a galaxy watch 5?
Is there a need for one?

I would plug it into a pc, then tell it to scan a particular 'drive'. This drive been the watch.
But is there a need for it to be scanned?

Although technically there's no device care on the watch 5 They may be worth double checking the security in the application sections on your watch just to make sure everything is rock down correctly.

I'm more concerned with the watch harbouring a virus following windows cyberattack on network. Watch wifi turned on

I do not think there is a need for a scan , though obviously need to be security conscious. May make sense to limit access to some Apps and ensure all Devices have latest updates. 

Some information here https://www.iuemag.com/m19/sc/smartwatch-security-threats-you-should-know-about 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

@WillQ When you turn you watch 5 on from restart this may give you reassurance samsungs Knox security should show on the screen before loading up
