After the beta program is complete, Samsung Electronics plans to officially install the ‘One UI 5 Watch’ on the new Galaxy Watch, which is scheduled to be unveiled in the latter half of this year.

One UI 5 Watch New Features

Improved sleep management features

Samsung Electronics has highlighted the importance of understanding personal sleep patterns, developing healthy habits, and creating an optimized sleep environment to help users achieve better sleep. To this end, the company has further improved its sleep management function through the ‘One UI 5 Watch’ operating system.

The Galaxy Watch now offers a range of tips for better sleep, which was previously available only on Galaxy smartphones. These tips include suggestions like avoiding caffeine 6 hours before bedtime and getting sunlight in the morning. Moreover, the ‘User Interface’ has been improved for better usability, displaying the user’s sleep score at the top of the screen. This allows users to quickly check their sleep time and quality from the previous night at a glance.

Personalized fitness features

The ‘One UI 5 Watch’ offers a customized workout guide that takes into account the user’s heart rate range. Using the Galaxy Watch, the user can measure their ‘cardipower’, an individual’s cardiovascular fitness level. When the user runs for at least 10 minutes, the system sets their maximum oxygen intake (VO2max) and establishes personalized heart rate intervals for cardio and anaerobic exercises.

Enhanced safety function

The emergency SOS function has also been improved. In an emergency, a feature has been added that will be connected to an emergency number, such as 119, if a user presses the home button on the Galaxy Watch five times in a row and confirms whether to connect to the phone.

In addition, when a rescue request is made to an emergency number, such as 119, a button is provided on the Galaxy Watch screen that provides direct access to the user’s medical information. In order to provide information, the user must register their medical information in advance.

“Samsung Electronics is striving to provide an integrated health experience so that users can achieve their health goals, and we are looking at the start as a good night’s sleep,” said Hon Pak, managing director of the digital health team at Samsung Electronics’ MX division. “We expect to help Galaxy Watch users improve their sleep quality through the new One UI 5 Watch operating system and enjoy a healthy and vibrant daily life.”

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

Published

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.
