Samsung announces its upcoming Galaxy Watch will be the first to feature the One UI Watch interface with unified Wear OS platform

Samsung has launched One UI Watch – its latest smartwatch user interface – at its Mobile World Congress (MWC) event today. This One UI Watch interface will sit on top of the new unified Wear OS smartwatch platform built jointly with Google.

During the MWC event, the Korean tech giant showcases some examples of the new smartwatch platform. For instance, once you install watch-compatible apps on your smartphone, they will be automatically downloaded onto your smartwatch.

If you customised your smartwatch’s clock app to show the time of different cities, it will be reflected on the smartwatch. In addition, if you block calls or messages on your smartwatch, they will now be blocked on your smartphone too.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Watch will be the first smartwatch to feature the new unified Wear OS platform and One UI Watch. And Samsung revealed the new smartwatch will make its debut at an Unpacked event later this summer. The next flagship smartphone – usually the Note series – is expected to launch at the next Unpacked event as well.
