Samsung’s One UI Watch has been the reason for the success of the Galaxy Watch. The operating system was launched back in 2018 and provided a proper interface for the smartwatch platform. Samsung is the only brand to compete with Apple in the smartwatch industry due to its One UI Watch.
Last year, Samsung announced the integration of One UI Watch with Google’s Wear OS. It means, Samsung will use Google’s Wear OS on their Galaxy Watch with the One UI skin on top of it. Samsung has already fulfilled that promise with the Galaxy Watch 4 and now, a new One UI Watch is going to be launched.
The new One UI Watch will also be based on the Wear OS and will be available for Galaxy Watch 4 users. Samsung will test the new One UI Watch by releasing a public beta version starting on 2nd June 2022. Previously, Samsung used to launch beta versions on smartphones only, this would be the first time the company will do the same with the smartwatch.
One UI Watch Beta: Registration
Samsung has announced that the beta update will be available from 2nd June 2022 and users have to register to experience it. Just like the other beta programs, the registration for the One UI Watch Beta will also be available on the Samsung Members app. Users have to register with the email ID registered with the Samsung account and accept the consent to complete it.
The beta program is only for the regular versions(Bluetooth) of the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. So, users with special editions are not eligible for the beta program. The program is for the South Korean region currently, but looking at Samsung’s history of beta programs, it might be available in other regions soon.
Samsung has not announced anything more than this about the new One UI Watch. So, we don’t know what new features Samsung might bring with the update. We might see a glimpse of what we can have in the new Galaxy Watch 5.
