One UI Watch-based Wear OS 5 is developing for Galaxy Watches

Published

on


Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 6 series is running on Wear OS 4 onboard; now, to add a major layer of upgrade, the brand is gearing up to deliver a new update in the form of Wear OS 5. 

Wear OS 5 for Galaxy Watches is under processing

The Korean giant has already started developing a new firmware version for the Galaxy Watch 6, which appears as R965USQU1BXD8. A tipster has revealed that Samsung is working on a new firmware version for the carrier-locked Galaxy Watch 6 smartwatch for the US market, leading to speculation.

This new firmware version indicates a major One UI version change, and it could be One UI Watch 6 based on Wear OS 5. On the other hand, Google has already revealed via @MatthewReiter05 that it will disclose Wear OS 5 and its features at the forthcoming Google I/O 2024 event on May 14, 2024. 

A couple of months after the announcement, Wear OS 5 will probably be available in stable form, and Samsung could soon release a stable One UI Watch 6 based on that platform. However, it’s yet to be clear what new features and UI design improvements Google plans to bring with the Wear OS 5 update. It is expected to improve integration with Android-based smartphones, tablets, and TVs.

Samsung has made the One UI 6 watch beta program live in the US and South Korea. Here,  users who have installed the beta update are reporting several issues that are related to different functions of the Galaxy smartwatches.

Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch users have reported issues appearing in several functions, such as the watch home screen, Samsung Health, battery draining, and media control issues.

Samsung One UI 6 Watch Beta Bugs & Issues

As reported by different Galaxy Watch users, here are the detailed issues:

Watch home screen issue: A user reported that the steps and calories are not showing on the watch screen after installing the beta update; however, after changing the watch faces, it starts working.

Samsung Health: In Samsung Health, users are getting repeated crashing problems a few moments after opening. It is suggested to clear the cache, but if the problem still persists, then users should try to check and install the latest update of the application.

Battery draining issue: After installing the One UI 6 watch beta, some users are reporting that they are getting battery draining issues. According to a report, when the watch charges completely, the user is getting 36 hours of backup before installing the beta update, but after installing the new beta update, the user is claiming that he gets 20 to 30% less battery backup.

Google Message issue: A user is claiming that Google Messenger is not worrying after installing the beta update; the Google Message is not even opening. In response to the complaint, the moderator said that the team is aware of the issue and working on fixing it.

Apart from this main issue, there are several other issues that are also reported by users. As it is a beta update, it is obvious that the software has a lot of bugs and some unpolished features, but as far as the fix of the issue is concerned, it is expected that the company may fix some of them with another beta update. It will introduce all the fixes with the stable update, which is expected to be available in the next few weeks. If you want to get rid of the issues now, then you can level the beta program by following the below steps.

Samsung is about to launch two new wearable smartwatches: the Galaxy Watch 7 and the Galaxy Watch Ultra. Right before any official announcement, the leak teases some key specifications of the upcoming watches. 

Samsung, on July 10th, at its next Galaxy Unpacked event, will debut the next-generation Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra. The new leak suggests a list of a few key specs for these upcoming smartwatches. A report from Notebookcheck reported that, according to a tipster, @negativeonehero, both of these wearables are going to power with the new Exynos W1000 chipset. The memory package will include 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of built-in storage. 

We can see the sizes here too: a choice of 40mm and 44mm case sizes for the Galaxy Watch, and a single 47mm size for the Galaxy Watch Ultra. Reportedly, the Galaxy Wach 7 could be 9.7 mm thick, whereas the Galaxy Watch Ultra could be 12.1 mm. Jumping on the battery size of the Galaxy Watch 7, it could get a 3000mAh or 425mAh battery, depending on the size, which weighs in at 28.5g or 33.5g. The Galaxy Watch Ultra is expected to feature a 590mAh battery and weigh 61.5g.

It is also reported that the Galaxy Watch Ultra could arrive with a titanium casing and a brighter screen as compared to the standard Galaxy Watch 7. It seems that the upcoming Galaxy Watch Ultra could replace the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic.

Wear OS: Samsung Internet Browser Adds New Functionality

Published

By


Samsung has created a well-connected ecosystem for its devices, where most of its useful applications are available on smartphones and smartwatches. One of those applications is the Samsung Internet Browser, which allows users to use several tools to explore the content available on the Internet. Now the smartwatch-based application is getting a new useful back-and-forward feature with the latest update.

Samsung Internet Browser update (WearOS)

Samsung is rolling out a new update for the wearOS-based Samsung internet browser with version number 3.2.00.8. With the latest update, the company has introduced a new feature that will enable users to easily navigate web pages to forward or backward directions on all the WearOS smartwatches.

It is worth noticing that the Galaxy smartwatches previously supported the ability to navigate to previous web pages, and they will also have forward options, which will level up the browsing experience. It is worth noting that the Samsung Internet Browser is available for every WearOS watch, so the latest feature will be available for all those watches.

However, it is not clear yet if the update will give some dedicated buttons to navigate pages forward and backward, if it will work with simply swiping right and left gestures, or if it will work with the physical button on the smartwatches.

To update the Samsung Internet Browser on your watch, go to the Google Play Store, then swipe from the menu at the bottom of the screen and select My Apps. If you see a new update available, then hit the update button.
