Better Sleep, Better Health: New One UI 5 Watch Shows First Look at Upcoming Galaxy Watch
With enhanced sleep features, One UI 5 Watch sets the standard for holistic wellness via a better night’s rest
Samsung Electronics today unveiled One UI 5 Watch that will be available as part of Galaxy Watch series later this year. The new software is designed to bring an even more personalized and intuitive welness experience and includes enhancements that support better sleep as well as various fitness features.
“Samsung is dedicated to delivering a comprehensive health experience and empowering users to reach their wellness goals. Now more than ever, we believe this starts with getting a good night’s sleep,” said Hon Pak, Vice President and Head of Digital Health Team, MX Business at Samsung Electronics. “The new One UI 5 Watch continues our ongoing commitment to help people improve the quality of their sleep, so they can start each day fully recharged and ready for the day.”
Better Sleep: Essential to Better Wellness
Samsung has focused its efforts on three key elements for better sleep: understanding personal sleep patterns, building better habits, and establishing a sleep-friendly environment. One UI 5 Watch delivers on these elements with an even more complete sleep experience.
The new Sleep Insights UI prominently displays the user’s sleep score to provide a clearer snapshot of the prior night’s rest, followed by related metrics like sleep phases, snoring hours and blood oxygen levels. In addition, Sleep Coaching — tailored around eight different sleep types — also becomes fully accessible directly on Galaxy Watch as well as a paired phone, making for a more convenient and motivational way for users to track their habits at their convenience.
Creating a comfortable environment can make all the difference in sleep quality and even small distractions can have significant impacts. That’s why Samsung has made it easier to connect Galaxy Watch to a wide range of compatible devices. Once the user’s Galaxy Watch detects that they have fallen asleep, SmartThings lets the user switch off their connected devices to create a more conducive environment for rest. Sleep Mode swiftly mutes notifications and dims the user’s phone and watch screens and One UI 5 Watch builds on this feature by utilizing an infrared sensor rather than a green LED light to further minimize distractions.
A Smarter Fitness Partner
Personalized Heart Rate Zone has been added to Galaxy Watch’s various tailored running tools — including real-time running analysis and a customized interval training program. This new feature analyzes individual physical capabilities and sets five optimal workout intensity levels (warm-up, fat burn, cardio, hard-training and max. effort). This enables users to set their own goals based on their ability, from burning fat to high-impact cardio.
Outdoor activity enthusiasts can look forward to additional benefits with Galaxy Watch Pro starting with an expanded Route Workout—which now supports running and walking alongside previously available hiking and cycling route options. Galaxy Watch Pro users can also search and access the GPX File Database directly via the Samsung Health app and receive recommendations on new routes based on inputs like location, time, rating or popularity.
Updates to the SOS feature enable direct communication to an emergency telephone number to relay information on the wearer’s location.
One UI 5 Watch will be available first on the upcoming Galaxy Watch series later this year, with further updates to be announced soon.
