Sleep Apnea feature appears on older Galaxy watches before Galaxy Watch 7

Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra in the Galaxy Unpacked event 2024, which will go live today.

The next generation of watches is equipped with all-new high-end specs to offer a seamless experience to users. Apart from software, it will also provide some more new features, like sleep apnea.

Sleep Apnea Feature To Galaxy Watches

Samsung has already received approval from the FDA in the US for the sleep apnea detection feature, but the company has not introduced it to any of its Galaxy watches. This indicates that Samsung may be waiting for the perfect opportunity, and the launch of the Galaxy Watch 7 will be the perfect one.

We have already got a clue about the availability of the sleep apnea feature in the coming days. According to a report on Reddit, a user shared a couple of screenshots where we can clearly see the information about the sleep apnea feature. For instance, detecting Sleep apnea requires minimum sleep data for two nights.


It is worth noticing that the Samsung Monitor app is compatible with watches, from the Galaxy Watch 4 series to new ones, and will run on the minimum OS of WearOS5 and One UI watch 6.

This indicates the feature will be available with the One UI 6 watch update. However, currently, if the feature is working on the One UI 6 watch beta update, it still needs to be pretty acute before appearing in the official update.

Samsung has recently introduced its new flagship smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra. These watches are equipped with the latest hardware and software to offer users more capabilities.

However, many software capabilities will also be available for the older watches with the One UI 6 watch update. From those capabilities, new cool watch faces are now confirmed to be available for older watches.

According to the Samsung moderator, Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 and Ultra exclusive watch faces will be available for older Galaxy watches, including Galaxy Watch 4, Galaxy Watch 5, and Galaxy Watch 6.

However, he has not mentioned the availability of new faces for older watches. Still, according to traditions, the company may introduce them with a dedicated software update in the next few months.

It is not the first time that the latest watch faces have expanded to older watches. Earlier, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 also grabbed the One UI 5 watch faces with a dedicated software update.

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.

Along with the changes, Samsung has also shared the issue that needs to be fixed in the later update. It has been shared that the AOD does not turn off when not wearing a watch.
