Samsung’s One UI 5 Watch update wants the South Korean firm’s watches to look directly at the Apple Watch.
The smart watch market is experiencing one of its best times. Over the last few months we have seen some of the most interesting launches, Apple and Samsung are leading the way with complete, aesthetic watches and full of features. The Apple Watch is proof of this, although Samsung wants to shake its reign.
Of course, this only applies to smartwatches for Android phones. Yes, the Apple Watch supports Android as well, but it’s quite limited compared to using it with an iPhone. With this in mind, companies have a lot of room for improvement that they can take advantage of to get ahead of Apple.
Samsung seems to have taken note of this situation and, in fact, what has been seen in the presentation of One UI 5 Watch is that they are going to put all the meat on the spit. Among the main novelties that come with this update are focused on health and sports applications along with user safety.
The Samsung smart watches that will debut these new features in the beta program are the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. There is no set date for the launch of this beta, but it is known that It will be throughout this month of May 2023 so you will have to be attentive in case you want to try the news.
