Can the camera app's focus and shutter be muted?
In some jurisdictions, muting the shutter sound is illegal so many cameras don't have these settings.
You may be able to root the phone and replace the focus and shutter sound files with empty files.
There is no setting for it, but placing finger on your buckle's microphone entirely kills the shutter sound off.
That's what I do!
I use index finger to cover the speaker, while thumb take the photos.
Kind of got used to it already
dum question. where is the microphone?
Check out the pix in this user manual PDF:
You'll find it on the side of the watch opposite of the power button & another one below the power button.
By the way, sorry, I meant to say "Speaker" not Microphone
When my iPhone is on vibrate, the camera shutter is "silent".
Speaker is on the buckle clasp.
The Gear's shutter sound is on by design, specifically to alert people to someone taking a sneak picture of them.
