i downloaded this app on the galaxy wear store called ,, "sorry it is in the google app store "
" myWear File Explorer " ... i have no doubt that other app's will work to
install it on both phone and watch , mine is a Galaxy Watch4 Classic 46mm - Paired with S10+
open the app and find the files you want on your phone - send them to your watch4
go to your watch , open the app - " myWear File Explorer " ,the files i transferred were at the bottom of all the folders ,not in a folder..... "it is posible to change the destination folder"
tap/hold , they will go blue then tap the 3 dots on the side to copy,,
scroll to ringtone folder, tap to open and then tap the tick to paste them in the ringtone folder,
also paste them to the notification folder if you want to use them
then check to see if it's in the ringtone folder
go to settings/ sounds and vibration, down to ringtone and when i tapped on it
yeppie i got a new ringtone
i hope you understand how i did it
You may have to turn your watch off and back on
update for everyone ... check out the pic's on page3 / if you do get a bit lost
Now i have over 130+ ringtones notification and alarm sound's after restart
*** please click the - Like Button... ***
confirmed file's that this works with -

and a few have said --
*** a restart must be done to see all custom sounds ***
"I didn't see my custom files on ringtone list even after few restarts. But then I switched in sound settings sound mode from "sound" to "vibration" then to "silent" and again to "sound" and my custom files appeared on a ringtone list.

Solved! Go to Solution.
I didn't see my custom files on ringtone list even after few restarts. But then I switched in sound settings sound mode from "sound" to "vibration" then to "silent" and again to "sound" and my custom files appeared on a ringtone list. Maybe it will help others too.
I couldn't get the file to transfer across using the app. If it worked I couldn't find it. However I did it like this.
1. Install the MyWear File Explorer on watch.
2. Get mp3 tune on phone. I shortened name but made sure it ended in .mp3
3. Found the music file, clicked and hold it to share, then chose galaxy wear. It asked for a permission, clicked yes. I then repeated the step again. Once downloaded watch offers to open it. Ignore that, unless you want to have a listen. 😀
4. Opened the MyWear file explorer app on watch. Navigated to music/galaxyWearable. Found the track
5. Click and hold until it turned blue, clicked the 3 dots. Then cut , then pressed the arrow at top of screen pointing left twice to get to main folder, then went down to ringtone, clicked into the folder then pressed blue tick.
6 . Went to sound settings and it appeared straight away.
Hope this works for anyone struggling the other way.
I had problem also with the no display the ringtones to the list.
I strugled for a lot of time so i figure it out and came back to help others.
The solution is that you have to restart the watch via force restart
( hold both buttons for 5 seconds)
and not just shutdown and turn on.
JUST that !
Hope i help .
i do this every time i put ringtones,
the other way with putting on vibration,silence and again to sound didnt help to me.
sorry i'll let someone else do it as ,,
the way i have done it worked for me and many other's,,
i only found this by trial and error and hours of headaches ,, i'am no expert ,
i was just lucky to find away to do it and other user's have told/helped me with things and then i've edited this post many time's
but there are so many different things that could be wrong
allowed permissions - incompatible device - and the list go's on
i do hope you do find a way to get it working or you may have a friend who can help you ,,
but at least now you know it can be done, and you don't have to wait for samsung to fix it....
but i will say this if you have the app on both your watch and phone your 95% there, the rest is above,, and if you can do above and it show's the files in the ringtone folder on your watch,, reboot your watch it should work then as the files on your watch are in the right place.....
could have put it better,, Weird,, exectly the same thing happened to me ,
not there and then they were and i dont think it's the file lenth , i've a few long ones,
it's the watch - it's gotta mind of it's own...
" thats way i edited the post to say reboot the watch as others have said the same which seems to be what's needs to be done",,
but you've have got it to work so great have fun,,😉
