Samsung has already offered the new Wear OS version for the newer Galaxy Watches, and now the final product is getting its update.

Samsung has released the Wear OS 4-based One UI 5 version for its Galaxy smartwatches this week. The company has teamed up with Google to work on the Wear OS platform since last year, which is allowing Samsung to offer newer updates faster than other brands. Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy Watch 4 series is getting the new One UI version in the US for now, with other countries expected to get their update in the coming weeks.

With the new Wear OS version, Samsung smartwatches get a July 2023 security patch and a slew of features that make the Galaxy Watch 4 series even more effective.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 users can enjoy new health features thanks to the improved sensor capability, and the company claims that now you will get enhanced sleep tracking and heart monitoring data. You can track the heart rate based on your cycling pattern and better sleep coaching as well.

Apart from these, you have some functional features like the option to save the data from the watch on Samsung Cloud and finally, you can switch to a new phone and pair it with the smartwatch without having to factory reset the device.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Series 5 and 6 have already got the update from the company, and the Galaxy Watch 4 will be the last in the wearable lineup to be issued this One UI version. And if you own the new Galaxy Z Flip 5 or Fold 5 then the watch running on the One UI version allows you to take pictures on your wrist in the flex or tent mode.

Both Google and Samsung are hoping that overhauling the OS will allow them to compete with Apple Watch which is the undisputed smartwatch leader in the market. Google is also banking on the Pixel Watch series, with the second-gen model expected to be announced with the Pixel 8 series next month.
