With the new update, users will get a new experience in multitasking; now you can use multiple apps in the floating window and immediately set them in the multiwindow.

When the sleep management feature is upgraded, it will come with a new user interface that will simplify the sleep pattern and make it easier to understand. Users can now access sleep coaching right from their wrist, which will help them get the right sleep by following the tracking.

Apart from this, the One UI 5 watch will introduce some new features like the heart rate zone feature, which analyzes your physical capabilities and establishes five optimal running intensity levels, in addition to the more than 100 existing workout trackers.

To enhance heart rate monitoring, Samsung has introduced a new feature called the Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification (IHRN). Additionally, Galaxy Watch users will be able to use some more stylish and informative watch faces, which will match their style and goals.

Samsung will soon release the One UI 5 Watch update for the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 5. It is also worth noticing that some of these features will also be available on some older Galaxy watches, including the Galaxy Watch 3 and Galaxy Active 3, in future updates.

Galaxy Watch Ultra

Samsung is quite close to launching the Galaxy Watch Ultra at the Galaxy Unpacked event next month. It’s the first Ultra-branded smartwatch from Samsung, so predicting the price is quite interesting. Now the new leak is revealing the price of the watch. 

Samsung is all set to hold its next Galaxy Unpacked event in Paris on July 10th to introduce a bunch of Galaxy products, including the Galaxy Watch Ultra. The new report reported that this watch would be priced at nearly $700 in the US, which would make it considerably more expensive than the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. 

However, here is a fact: If you were hoping that rumors would turn out to be wrong, you will be disappointed since the European prices are saying something else. The Galaxy Watch Ultra and Galaxy Buds 3 have leaked online, and they reveal that the Galaxy Watch Ultra will be priced just as expensive in Europe. 

Even before any official statement regarding the upcoming wearables, they have been spotted on various retail websites. It is also reported that the forthcoming Galaxy Watch Ultra could be priced nearly between €689 and €699; however, this appears close to what the Apple Watch Ultra retailed for when it launched in 2022. Jumping on the Galaxy Watch 7, which is listed as the 40mm Bluetooth variant with a €319 price tag whereas €349 for the 44mm Bluetooth variant. The upcoming Galaxy Buds 3 are also listed for €229, and the Galaxy Buds 3 Pro is listed for €319. 

For now, these prices are based on listings, but soon, within a month, the accurate prices for all of these products will go official.

The Korean firm ‘Samsung’ is looking forward to expanding its wearable smartwatch family by introducing a brand new watch named Galaxy Watch Ultra. This watch listed on the Samsung support website showcases the details. Let’s take a closer look at the listing. 

The listing on the Samsung support website confirmed that the upcoming Galaxy Watch Ultra is officially coming to compete with the Apple Watch Ultra. This means that the watch will face tough competition in the market. According to a recent report, the Galaxy Watch Ultra was spotted on the Samsung support website in Canada. 

The official support page for the Galaxy Watch Ultra is no longer available online. However, it was confirmed that the Galaxy Watch Ultra will have LTE support and a 47mm size. It’s expected that this time the Korean giant could only offer the Galaxy Watch Ultra in one size. The watch was listed with the model number SM-L705F. The product is likely to come in two colors: white and dark gray, with an orange side key. 

Previously, it was also reported that the Galaxy Watch Ultra might cost 700 euros, which is approximately $750. It seems like a quiet price tag for the smartwatch. Although, as compared to the current Galaxy Watch 6 and upcoming Galaxy Watch 7, it’s more than double the price. The brand will power the upcoming Galaxy Watch trio with a new 3 nm Exynos processor. 

It is also reported that Samsung could offer a 20% increase in power efficiency and enhanced performance. Besides, the Galaxy Watch 7 series and Watch Ultra will arrive pre-installed with Wear OS 5-based One UI 6 Watch out of the box.
