1 week ago 9

Samsung today held its Unpacked 2024 event and made some major announcements. The company introduced its latest foldable smartphones including the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6, apart from the Galaxy Ring. In addition, the company also took the wraps off its latest smartwatches. The new Galaxy Watch 7 and Watch Ultra have arrived as the first wearables powered by the Wear OS 5 version.

The Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra offer Wear OS 5, even before Google’s own smartwatches

The Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra are the first smartwatches in the world to offer Wear OS 5, even before Google devices. Notably, a similar thing happened with the Wear OS 4 version. It was first delivered to the public with the Galaxy Watch 6 series, before being included in the Pixel Watch 2. The new OS likely won’t be available on other smartwatches, until next month when Google may unveil the Pixel Watch 3.

The latest version of Google’s OS for smartwatches was introduced two months ago at the Google I/O 2024 event. Wear OS 5 offers a similar UI to its predecessor, but gets many changes under the hood. As per Google, the Wear OS 5 version is optimized to deliver better battery life and enhanced performance. There are many new health features, apart from access to more data types. It also offers additional options for watch faces, a new grid-based app launcher, and more.

As of now, it’s not clear if Wear OS 5 will be available for the previous Samsung smartwatches. That said, the latest Samsung wearables will have exclusive access to the latest Wear OS version for some time. Notably, the Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra will get four years of updates.
