One UI 5 Watch Faces will come to TizenOS Galaxy Watches

Published

on


The next significant development in the Galaxy Watch era is One UI 5 Watch, which is based on Wear OS 4. The Galaxy Watch 5 is now receiving the new OS, with the earlier models being the next to receive the most recent upgrade. Other than minor hardware upgrades, Wear OS 4 became immediately clear as one of the primary factors in the success of the Galaxy Watch 6. However, the Watch 6 isn’t the only device that can use that basic software. Notably, the upcoming autumn release will incorporate elements of the Galaxy Watch 6 into the 2019-launched Galaxy Watch 2 Active and the 2020-launched Galaxy Watch 3.

In the near future, the Galaxy Watch 2 Active and Watch 3 will be able to use a variety of newly equipped Watch 6 series. So despite not being able to receive One UI 5, the Galaxy Watch 2 Active and Watch 3 models will still be enhanced by running Wear OS 3. An Android operating system version developed by Google specifically for smartwatches and other wearables is the Wear OS, which was used by South Korean tech in their Galaxy smartwatches that were launched after 2021, and it is still following the same path now.

Before that, the firm utilized the Tizen OS, the business’ internal platform for operating the gadgets, and this is the reason behind the absence of the new One UI version for the 2021 variants. Specially added dials such as “Stretched Time” and “Perpetual” are referred to in Dutch as “Stretched Time” and Blijvend,” respectively. With the function Stretched Time, customization is possible with a wide variety of options.

Samsung has not provided an exhaustive plan for the upgrade, so the exact availability of this is unknown. The South Korean Giant just stated from its side that it would be ready “next fall,” which refers to the autumn period, so the users will need to be patient.

One UI 6 Watch Beta Update Could Be Just Around the Corner

Published

By


Samsung started stepping towards its next major software update for its Galaxy wearables and brought efficiency and health-tracking improvements, as it is now gearing up to release the One UI 6 Watch Beta update based on the latest version, Wear OS 5. 

It’s not so long since Google unveiled its Wear OS 5 for smartwatches, and now, within a few days, Samsung has started working on the next update to enhance the smartwatch experience. Meanwhile, for the South Korean market, the Korean giant has listed One UI 6 Watch Beta on its website, which hints at its fast approach to release. 

Samsung Begins Preparations for One UI 6 Watch Beta Update

The forthcoming update is most probably expected to be based on Wear OS 5, and it could be released sometime in the next few weeks. The Korean brand started internal development of the One UI 6 Watch a couple of days ago. This is being speculated by a post on X shared by a tipster who hinted that the One UI 6 Watch beta is incoming. 

One UI 6 Watch Beta Update

Revising the previous release, the Korean giant released the Wear OS 4-based One UI 5 Watch Beta update in early June 2023. Based on these metrics, it is expected that this time it could release the One UI 6 Watch Beta update to eligible Galaxy Watches in early June 2024. Wear OS 5 is based on Android 14, and the One UI 5 Watch will also be based on Android 14. This new version of Wear OS is expected to improve battery life through process optimization in Doze Mode. 

One UI 6 Watch Beta Update

Smartwatches with Wear OS 5 offer 20% longer battery life while running a marathon, as Google revealed. It also makes the Watch Face Format, developed by Samsung, the default format, which means most third-party watch faces should now help smartwatches get longer battery life. Some other features are also expected from One UI 6 Watch, such as support for passkeys, the ability to restore passkeys from the cloud, a simpler login experience, and many more.

Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra’s Hint at Major Design Changes

Published

on

By


Samsung is close to adding a new lineup to its wearable smartwatch family soon, with the title Galaxy Watch 7 Series. Now the renders of the upcoming Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra hint that the watch will appear in a squarish design with more details. 

At the next Galaxy Unpacked event in July 2024, the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra will make its debut. Now Smartprix with the collaboration with OnLeaks reported the exclusive 5K renders of the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra. Let’s take a closer look at what new novelties are in line for the upcoming movie.

The Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra is reported to bring some interesting design changes, including the most prominent one: a squarish look, a third physical button, larger speakers, and a few expected watch band charges. A glance at the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra renders unveiled a squarish outer frame around the circular display, along with a shiny rotating bezel that doesn’t appear to blend very well with the matte frame. However, even after this change, the watch will stand on a rounded, circulatory display, ensuring that the core visual appeal remains known to long-time users and that the UI doesn’t have to be rebuilt for a square display. 

It’s reported that the Galaxy Watch 7 will feature a 1.5-inch display with slightly larger dimensions of 47 x 47.4 x 16.4 mm. However, the reason behind this design choice remains unclear, but it does make the Watch 7 Ultra bulkier. The bezel of the watch is marked with subtle lines and minimalistic indicators, a departure from the numeric indicators found on the Watch 6 Classic bezel. 

A noticeable change is also reported, which is a third circular button housed in the middle on the right side of the watch. This new button, which lies close to the traditional two, could offer new functionalities to the Galaxy Watch, the same as the Action Button placed on the Apple Watch Ultra. 

A new alignment of health sensors will appear in a circular array of individual circles and squares, opposite to the seamless ring of sensors found on the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic. Notably, the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra retains the temperature sensor, but it has been placed a bit upwards towards the center. The watch bands also appear to integrate more seamlessly with the watch body, offering a cleaner look. Also alongside the sensor array, two button-like elements are placed at the top and the bottom. 

These could be disconnecting the watch bands, a design shift from the predecessor Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, where the buttons were on the watch bands themselves. The upcoming watch will also have a larger speaker grill, which is positioned to the left of the watch and is noticeably larger than those on the current Galaxy Watch models. 

Tiny ‘holes’ on the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra seem like microphones. Samsung also seems to be going full-on with the mic and audio experience on the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra. The previous reports already suggested that the Galaxy Watch 7 series will have a new chipset, charge 50% faster than its predecessor, and finally bring blood sugar monitoring
