Samsung is expected to unveil the new Galaxy Z Fold6 and Galaxy Z Flip6 at an event in Paris in early July. These devices should ship with One UI 6.1.1. This version will then make it to Samsung’s other flagships, including the Galaxy S24 series and the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra. But today came the surprise: Samsung has announced the release of One UI 6 Watch. The current version is based on Google’s Wear OS 5 and brings Galaxy AI features to Samsung smartwatches.

Samsung announces One UI 6 Watch with Galaxy AI features for its wearables

The latest version of the operating system for wearables was unveiled by Google earlier this month. Samsung has now revealed which features One UI 6 Watch will get. Galaxy AI will help the platform give you “more comprehensive health insights” Samsung says.

The Energy Score is intended to help better understand your daily condition through a combined analysis of personal health metrics. These include average and consistent sleep time, consistent wake time, sleep time, previous day’s activity, sleep heart rate, and heart rate variability. This sounds exactly like Garmin’s Body Battery, but it’s good to see the feature reaching other platforms as well. Wellness tips are designed to give you insights, motivational tips, and guidance based on personal goals.

Apart from these new features, the One UI 6 Watch update will bring improved health algorithms and more advanced tracking tools. With this, Samsung aims to “provide more holistic, personalized and actionable insights when combined with AI”.

The “Sleep AI algorithm” is designed to provide additional, detailed sleep insights based on new sleep indicators. The added metrics include movement during sleep, sleep latency, heart rate and respiratory rate. Previously, the analyses were based on metrics such as snoring hours, blood oxygen levels and sleep cycle.

There will also be new detailed aerobic threshold/anaerobic threshold heart rate zone metrics for athletes. Cyclists can look forward to functional threshold performance metrics. The new workout routine combines different exercises for personalized training and seamlessly moves on to the next exercise without stopping. Finally, the new Race feature compares current and past performance on the same routes when running and cycling outdoors.

“By expanding the power of Galaxy AI across our ecosystem, we’re looking to open up all new possibilities with optimized and connected experiences that offer users greater personalization and intelligence. The introduction of Galaxy AI to Galaxy Watch is just the beginning of this process and we’re excited to showcase even more integrations across our Galaxy portfolio very soon.”

Junho Park, VP and Head of Galaxy Ecosystem Product Planning Team

The One UI 6 Watch update will be available “later this year.” A limited beta program will begin in June. It covers the Galaxy Watch4, Galaxy Watch4 Classic, Galaxy Watch5, Galaxy Watch5 Pro, Galaxy Watch6, and Galaxy Watch6 Classic.

One UI 6.1.1 brings numerous camera updates to the Galaxy S24 Ultra

But One UI development isn’t standing still for Samsung’s smartphones either. Today, a new report from prolific tipster Ice Universe claims that the upcoming One UI 6.1.1 update will be the biggest for the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra since its release.

Not only One UI 6.1.1 for the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra is apparently also supposed to include a lot of camera updates. This should be good news for those who have had camera performance so far leave a lot to be desired due to a lack of updates.

Of course, updates can’t change the hardware, but hopefully they can fix problems here and there. According to Ice Universe, Samsung is currently testing this update, but it will be tested for “quite a long time” before it is actually released. Hopefully that means the result will be convincing.
