Samsung Galaxy wearable smartwatches based on Wear OS will soon receive One UI 6 Watch Beta, as the brand has published One UI 6 Watch Beta-related pages in its US community. 

Galaxy smartwatch owners are eagerly waiting for the next major update, One UI 6 Watch, which will bring the latest Android 14-based Wear OS 5. The latest update is expected to bring dozens of new features, improvements, and most noticeably AI-powered tools for enhancing the user experience. The latest development hints that Samsung added beta-related pages to the community. 

A post on X was shared by a tipster, @theonecid, stating that “Samsung US mods have started adding some content.” 

The pages are for the convenience of consumers willing to participate in the beta activity. The pages contain guides, community guidelines, privacy policies, and terms so that those who are looking forward to joining the One UI 6 Watch beta program can easily do so without any confusion. However, the brand has already teased a few One UI 6 Watch features. The company also announced that dozens of features and upgrades are still in the development phase. It is expected that we will have a full Wear OS 5-based One UI Watch showdown at the July Unpacked event. 

The giant has already detailed a few One UI 6 Watch features, which include Energy Score, Wellness Tips, Sleep Insights, Aerobic Threshold (AT) and Anaerobic Threshold (AnT) Heart Rate Zone, Functional Threshold Power (FTP), Workout Routine, and Race Mode. 

It was also reported that Samsung could also bring One UI 6 Watch’s Galaxy AI features to all Android phones. The company might ship select features with the Samsung Health app, and the rest of the other AI-powered tools might be useful through relevant applications and services. We already reported the eligible Galaxy Watch list for the upcoming One UI 6 Watch Beta program; you can check it out here.

Last month, Samsung launched its brand-new Galaxy Watch FE, specially made to provide the flagship Galaxy watch features at an affordable price; this is the first time the Korean giant has introduced the updated fan edition Galaxy watch.

As we said, the device is made to reach users who can use flagship-level features at an affordable cost. It is obvious that the company hasn’t equipped the device with similar hardware. Now, the new report mentions that the watch also lacks OS update support.


How Many Software Update Will Galaxy Watch FE Get?

According to SamHive, the Galaxy Watch FE is only eligible for 4 year of software support, during which it will receive three major updates: Wear OS and One UI watch. The device will also receive security patches for four years.

Compared to the other standard Galaxy watches, the FE variant lacks one OS and one year of software updates. Meanwhile, Samsung has followed the same five-year software policy for the Galaxy Watch 7 series.

In general, major software updates benefit users by providing the convenience of using different functionalities. At the same time, security patch support ensures that users can stay protected from cyber threats.
