At MWC 2021, Samsung has announced the much-awaited One UI Watch software, based on Galar Wear OS, for future Galaxy  smartwatches. Google had announcedits partnership with Samsung for a unified smartwatch software platform last month at Google I/O 2021. One UI Watch will first come on a Galaxy Watch that will debut at the Galaxy Unpacked event, which is expected to take place sometime in August this year.
The new OS will be rolled out on a Galaxy Watch scheduled to be launched later this year.
One UI Watch will automatically download apps on the smartwatch if the watch-compatible apps are downloaded on the connected smartphone. If the user blocks any calls or messages on the smartwatch, they will be blocked on the smartphone as well. Similarly, the clock style also synchronises between the two devices accordingly.
As per Samsung, the unified platform will also allow users to download third-party apps from Google Play Store directly from the watch. Users can also download fitness apps like Adidas Running, GOLFBUDDY Smart Caddie, Strava and and more. For a balanced lifestyle, they can download Calm or Sleep Cycle apps or music apps like Spotify, YouTube Music and even use Google Maps for navigation on the watch.
The new OS will also offer new tools for designers to make new watch faces for the users that “suit their mood, activity and personality”.
As per a statement by Sameer Samat, Vice President of Product Management, Android and Wear, Google, “Samsung and Google have a long history of collaboration and whenever weve worked together, the experience for our consumers has been dramatically better for everyone. That certainly holds true for this new, unified platform, which will be rolling out for the first time on Samsungs new Galaxy Watch. In collaboration with Samsung, were thrilled to bring longer battery life, faster performance, and a wide range of apps, including many from Google to a whole new wearable experience.
