Samsung at the 2021 Mobile World Congress (MWC) presented its new One UI Watch interface. This comes after the firm announced its cooperation with Google to integrate Wear and Tizen into a single, unified platform for performance gains, a more seamless experience between the Watch and Android devices, and access to an even greater number of applications.
Samsung OneUI Watch Upgrades:
Together with the new unified platform, One UI Watches will bring you a new experience and will be sent to the smartwatch when you instal watch-compatible apps on your smartphone. If you have personalised your clock application on your phone, it will also immediately be mirrored on your watch in different cities around the globe. And now they’re also prohibited on your smartphone when you block calls and messages from your watch.
One of Tizen’s failures was the absence of external application support, and with the new Wear OS, you can install a whole new titles library. One UI Watch offers the Google Play Store so that you may get apps from your wearable device directly. Now it also allows you to immediately download third-party apps like AdidasRunning, Google Maps from Google Play in the Galaxy Clock, GOLFBUDDYSmartCaddie, Strava and Swim.com, Calm or Sleep Cycle, Spotify, and YouTube Music.
Samsung will introduce an updated tool for watch face design which will simplify the creation of new watch faces for designers. Spontaneously this year, developers of Android could provide entertaining new designs to the watch faces of Samsung’s collection.
Samsung also revealed that Samsung would later this summer be introducing the new Galaxy Watch with the new One UI Watch and the new, unified platform. The projected introduction in early August is the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch Active 4.
“To unlock the full potential of these wearables, we’re leveraging our long legacy of mobile innovations and our partnerships with trusted industry leaders who have grown with us in our open ecosystem,” said Patrick Chomet, EVP and Head of Customer Experience Office, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung.
