Samsung released the second beta of the One UI Watch 5 update a week after releasing the first version.

The new One UI Watch beta update is available for the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 models in South Korea and the United Kingdom.

One UI Watch 5 beta second update for Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 5 has firmware version R870XXU1ZWF4 and weighs 188.72 MB. It also includes the June security patch for smartwatches.

In the records, Samsung mentions that it has improved the performance of the devices and fixed several bugs. The new update also fixed the slowness of devices after powering on and also fixed Samsung Pay which was not working properly.

The first update had considerably worsened battery life, according to several users. In the new update, the problem seems to have been solved. In the news, Samsung has introduced automatic recognition in cycling exercise.

In early May, Samsung announced One UI 5 Watch, the latest version of its software for Galaxy smartwatches. It will come with the Wear OS 4 update that will hit devices in the second half.

According to the South Korean, One UI Watch 5 is focused on three main pillars: sleep, fitness and security. Improvements range from better understanding the user’s sleep pattern to other expanded fitness news.

Samsung delays beta release of One UI Watch 5 for Galaxy Watch 4 and 5

Samsung promised to release the first beta version of One UI Watch 5 for the Galaxy Watch 4 and 5, but everything indicates that the company will not be able to meet the goal of delivering the software before the end of May.

According to SamMobile people, as much as the company has good intentions, there is no indication that the software will be released later today (may 31st).

This was also confirmed with people working on the South Korean manufacturer’s software development team.

The only detail of the initial promise that remains “standing” is that the beta version will be released first in South Korea and the United States.

It is worth remembering that One UI Watch 5 is based on Wear OS 4. Therefore, we should expect improvements in the sleep monitoring feature, adjustments in heart rate measurement and more training functions.

In addition, the software must still activate fall detection for all users over 55 years old, deliver an updated SOS system and more elements of Material You.

For Galaxy Watch 4 and 5: Samsung may start testing One UI Watch 5 soon

Testing with the One UI Watch 5 should start soon as Samsung should focus on adding and improving health-focused features. That’s what the portal says SamMobilewhich mentions that the first watches to test the new version will be from the Galaxy Watch 4 and 5 series.

First, let’s remember that Samsung said it would open the One UI Watch 5 testing program by the end of May. So the South Korean has just a few days to fulfill her promise, but for now no invitation has been made available on the Samsung Members app.

In this way, the first opportunity to test the One UI Watch 5 Beta before the launch of the Galaxy Watch 6 will be given to Galaxy Watch 4 and 5 users during COEX 2023, which will be held in South Korea on July 26.

Speaking of features, Samsung has already confirmed that the One UI Watch 5 will support continuous heart rate monitoring to detect and alert about irregular rhythms using the electrocardiogram sensor in the Galaxy Watch 4, Watch 5 and certainly also the Galaxy Watch 6.

The new version of the system should also have the new Sleep Insight, a feature that will provide personalized guidance to improve the night’s sleep with instructions unique to each user.

If Samsung opens the One UI Watch 5 Beta testing program later this month, the first countries to be covered should be the US and South Korea. To participate, users must access the Samsung Members app and register when invitations are released.
