The ability to understand when a smartwatch user will fall asleep and turn off their connected devices to create a more conducive environment for them, as well as the ability to detect falls useful for older users, helping to reduce the risk of emergency incidents necessity. they will now give - among other things - smart watches with the integration of appropriate software.

In particular, as announced by Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd , One UI 5 Watch software will be available for Galaxy Watch devices later this year is designed to deliver an even more personalized and intuitive health experience, while including improvements that support better sleep – an often overlooked but important part of overall well-being – as well as various fitness and safety features.

As announced, Samsung has focused its efforts on three key elements for better sleep: understanding personal sleep patterns, building good habits and creating a sleep-friendly environment. One UI 5 Watch offers these elements for an even more complete sleep experience. Among other things, the new Sleep Insights user interface displays the user's sleep score, providing a clearer picture of the previous night's sleep, while also including related metrics such as sleep phases, snoring hours and blood oxygen levels. In addition, Sleep Coaching — tailored to eight different sleep types — is also fully accessible directly on the Galaxy Watch as well as the connected smartphone, offering a more convenient way and motivating users to track their habits anytime, anywhere.

Creating a comfortable environment can make all the difference to sleep quality, as even small distractions can have a big impact. That's why Samsung has made it easy to connect the Galaxy Watch to a wide range of devices. Once the Galaxy Watch senses that the user has fallen asleep, SmartThings allows the user to turn off their connected devices to create a more conducive environment for rest. Sleep Mode instantly turns off notifications and dims the user's smartphone and watch screens. One UI 5 Watch builds on this feature by now using an infrared sensor instead of a green LED to further minimize distractions.

Also, among Galaxy Watch's personalized running tools — including real-time running analysis and a custom interval training program — Personalized Heart Rate Zone has now been added. The new function analyzes individual physical capabilities and sets five optimal training intensity levels (warm-up, fat burning, cardio, hard training and maximum effort). This enables users to set their own goals based on their abilities, from fat burning to high intensity aerobic exercise.

Among other things, One UI 5 Watch offers improved tools so users don't have to worry. Updates to the SOS feature allow immediate contact with an emergency phone number to relay information about the user's location, while also allowing immediate access to the user's medical information once SOS is activated. Additionally, fall detection is now enabled by default for older users, helping to reduce the risk of emergency incidents. These are just a few examples of Samsung's continuous efforts to improve user security. One UI 5 Watch will be available initially on the upcoming Galaxy Watch series later this year, with further updates to be announced soon.
