Google’s latest initiative to improve app updates for WearOS-based Galaxy Watches

Published

on


The South Korean firm Samsung is using Google WearOS in its new-generation Galaxy Watches, including the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5 series. Consequently, the Galaxy Watch blesses Samsung and Google both’s novelties. Recently, Google has brought a new helpful service for WearOS, which will increase WearOS utility even more. This new service will provide us with a wear-specific release track. Let’s a look at this new service.

Informatively, in March 2023, Google Play Console introduced this new service, which will provide the wear-specific release track. With its help, we will get a separate release track from Android, which helps to make WearOS independent. Previously, the developers used a default track to manage it, but now it has been changed. As an ability of this service, all Galaxy Watch users will get a specific track for the app updates.

Samsung Galaxy Watch’s app quality to be improve with WearOS

For information, it will be based on three major components- The addition of the WearOS form factor to Advanced Settings, the Preparation of the release according to the WearOS app quality, and Managing it on a default track. For app developers, this will surely be proven beneficial to differentiate various form factor releases, and now they will be able to provide frequent updates. For smaller developers fixated on WearOS only, it’s a win-win.

Galaxy Watch 7 Charging Speeds Up by 50% Compared to its Predecessor

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 is in the actively developing stage and is expected to bring a major boost of 50% faster charging speed than its predecessor, the Galaxy Watch 6. 

The Korean giant is setting up to launch the upcoming Galaxy Watch 7 as the successor to the Galaxy Watch 6. Before any official statement is released, leaks and rumors predict more about the watch. The new report suggests that the Galaxy Watch 7 will feature a 50% faster charging speed than the current models. 

It’s already been reported that the FCC has listed the Galaxy Watch 7 and the Galaxy Watch 7 FE on its website. The report speculates that after dedicatedly going through the Galaxy Watch 7 documents, it was discovered that the forthcoming watch will support 15W charging. According to the certification documents, one of the four variants of the Galaxy Watch 7 under the model number SM-L305 supports charging at 5V and 3A, which counts to 15W. 

The other three variants of the forthcoming Galaxy Watch 7, under the model numbers SM-L300, SM-L310, and SM-L315, are also expected to feature 15W charging. If this prediction is true, then the next-generation watch will take 50% less time to charge compared to its predecessor, which takes around one hour plus thirty minutes to get charged from tip to top. By these metrics, it appears that the Galaxy Watch 7 just asks you to wait 45 minutes to get charged from 0% to 100%. 

Jumping on the Galaxy Watch 7 FE, the certification documents show that the Galaxy Watch 7 FE supports only 5W charging, which is 50% slower than the Galax Watch 6. Since Samsung has not revealed any official statement regarding the charging speed of the upcoming watch, it will be interesting to see whether these reports come true or not.

Wear OS 5 Aims to Extend Galaxy Watch Battery Life

Published

By


Samsung Galaxy smartwatches are on the way to significant improvements, as at I/O 2024, Google unveiled Wear OS 5, promising even more worthy enhancements, including battery life improvements. 

Initially, Wear OS 5 is expected to launch with the forthcoming Galaxy Watch 7 in July at the Galaxy Unpacked event, and then on the Pixel Watch 3 by the end of this year, as its availability expands to other Wear OS watches. With Samsung’s continued collaboration and Google’s ongoing commitment, Wear OS is poised for a bright future, providing a robust and versatile smartwatch experience.

However, Google just teased Wear OS 5 but has yet to reveal all the details, but the giant claims this new update will decrease up to 20% of battery drain when tracking a marathon compared to Wear OS 4

Samsung Galaxy Watches will receive the Wear OS 5 update, hopefully bringing worthy attention to a decent boost in battery life. Apart from this, it is expected that the fitness application will have access to more data types, such as stride length, group contact time, and vertical oscillation. None of these are radical new features, but these enhancements should help further refine the Wear OS experience. Plus, longer battery life is always a welcome improvement, especially on smartwatches. 

Google will base Wear OS 5 on Android 14, with the release packing a few major developer-facing changes, including the next version of the Watch Face Format, which is expected to support new complications such as weather, goal progress, and many more.

Samsung is actively looking forward to expanding its wearable smartwatch family by adding one more member to the line called the Galaxy Watch 7, which is expected to arrive with the Exynos W1000 3nm. On the other hand, the existence of the Galaxy Watch FE is also confirmed. 

The next-generation Galaxy Watch 7 is supposed to be introduced at the Galaxy Unpacked event in July, consisting of three variants, including an “Ultra” model that could be the first smartwatch with a 3nm chipset. However, another affordable model is also rumored to be in the line called the Galaxy Watch FE

Initially, the rumors teased the fan community that the forthcoming Galaxy Watch 7 series’ three model could arrive with a 3nm Exynoss W940 chipset. If the new reports are to be believed, the upcoming watches will still be the first Samsung smartwatches with a 3nm chip, but the chip might be named the Exynos W1000 by contrast. 

The predecessor series Galaxy Watch 6 lineup arrived with the 5nm Exynos W930, and according to the new reports, the latest Exynos W1000 should bring 12% more enhancement in performance as well as energy efficiency. If the reports come true, then Samsung will introduce the Galaxy Watch FE alongside the Galaxy Watch 7. 

The Galaxy Watch FE is expected to be more affordable, similar to the recently launched Fan Edition phones and tablets such as the Galaxy Tab S9 FE, Galaxy Tab S9 FE+, Galaxy S23 FE, and Galaxy Buds FE. The reports from Android Headlines are revealing the two popped-up firmware models on the Samsung servers: the SM-R866 version, which was actually already looked at previously as an LTE variant, and the SM-R861 version with the R861XXU0AXE5/R8610XM0AXE5 firmware, which is expected to be a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth variant. 

It seems that the forthcoming Galaxy Watch FE may feature a lot of similar specs as the Galaxy Watch 4; for instance, a 1.2- or 1.4-inch AMOLED display, an Exynos Wg20 SoC, and more.
