THE Samsung today unveiled its One UI Watch at Mobile World Congress (MWC), sharing previews of the interface that will make the Galaxy Watch and smartphone experience more seamless.
The company also confirmed that One UI Watch will be available for the Galaxy Watch on the new, unified platform it co-created with Google, bringing performance improvements, as well as an improved experience across devices and access to more applications. . Samsung also revealed that the upcoming Galaxy Watch will be the first to introduce the new unified platform and the One UI Watch interface, which will debut at this summer’s Unpacked event.
“To unlock the full potential of these wearables, we’re leveraging our long legacy of innovation expertise and our open ecosystem of partnerships,” he said. Patrick Chomet, EVP and Head of Customer Experience Office, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “Through these efforts, we will enrich our smartwatch experience and the convenience of the Galaxy ecosystem for our consumers.”
To create a more seamless experience between Galaxy smartwatches and smartphones, Samsung is introducing its One UI experience to its line of Galaxy watches for the first time. One UI Watch is an interface that will provide an experience and look and feel consistent with other Galaxy devices.
One UI Watch, along with the new unified platform, will create an entirely new Galaxy Watch experience. As part of this new experience, apps that you have installed on your smartphone that are compatible with the smartwatch will automatically be downloaded to the smartwatch.
For example, if you have customized your watch app on your phone to show the time in different cities around the world, this will also be reflected on your smartwatch. If you block calls and messages using your watch, they will now be blocked on your smartphone as well.
The new platform will also open up new features and integrate popular applications directly into your Galaxy Watch.
So whether you’re a sports and fitness fanatic who wants to get more out of apps like Adidas Running, GOLFBUDDY SMARTCADDIE, Strava and Swim.com, a wellness seeker who wants to live a more balanced lifestyle with apps like Calm or Sleep Cycle, a music lover having fun discovering new artists on Spotify and YouTube Music, or a brave explorer ready to roam with the help of Google Map – there are options for everyone, thanks to a diverse range of partners.
“Samsung and Google have a long history of collaboration and whenever we work together the experience for our consumers becomes even higher,” he said. Sameer Samat, Vice President of Product Management at Google. “That certainly applies to this new unified platform, which will be launched for the first time on Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch. We’re excited to bring even more harmonious features, as well as the freedom and convenience of an unrivaled ecosystem of applications to Samsung’s wearable experience.”
In addition, Samsung will introduce an improved watch face design tool, making it easier than ever for designers to create new watch faces. Later this year, Android designers will be able to unleash their creativity and launch fun new designs that will add to Samsung’s growing collection of watch faces, giving consumers even more options to customize their smartwatches to suit the your state of mind, activity and personality.
The new Galaxy Watch will be the first-ever device to feature the One UI Watch and the new unified platform, which is scheduled to be announced at Samsung’s Unpacked event later this summer. Stay tuned for the new Galaxy Watch and more.
