At the end of last month, Samsung announced the One UI 6 Watch, the next version of its user interface based on Google’s Wear OS.

At that time, the company stated that the update would become available “later this year” for the Galaxy Watch4 and newer smartwatch models from Samsung.

Now, Samsung has released the first public beta of One UI 6 Watch for the Galaxy Watch6 and Galaxy Watch6 Classic in both the United States and Korea. Unfortunately, the beta will not be available in any other countries at this time.

It is expected that One UI 6 Watch will come preloaded on the upcoming Galaxy Watch7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra, which are slated for an official unveiling in early July at Samsung’s next Unpacked event.

Owners of Galaxy Watch6 and Galaxy Watch6 Classic in the United States and Korea can register their devices for the beta via the Samsung Members app.

Initial availability seems to be limited to the Bluetooth version of the watches, but LTE-enabled models are expected to gain access in the near future.

The beta will also make its way to the Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch5 in due course. According to the changelog, the Samsung Health app boasts a new Energy Level feature that assesses physical and mental readiness based on sleep and physical activity.

Additionally, there’s a more detailed sleep analysis with AI-driven insights and a comprehensive sleep report, including heart rate and breathing rate, as well as time to fall asleep.

Users can combine a series of different exercises into a custom workout routine. Quick actions are available through double-tap gestures, such as pressing the thumb and forefinger together twice, allowing for call answering, alarm silencing, notification scrolling, music control, photo capture, and more.

Buttons that can be controlled with a double-tap gesture appear with a finger icon to notify you.

Horizontal scrolling is now faster; tapping the bottom of the watch face will show a list of ongoing activities (calls, exercises, music playback), and the quick action button (answering a phone call, stopping an alarm) will automatically focus for you.

If you move your wrist back and forth, you can return to the previous screen without touching it, and modes can control more of your watch’s settings based on what you do or where you are.

You can choose which apps are allowed to send notifications directly to the watch, set emoji as favorites for quick access, save photo attachments from messages, and limit health features when power saving to extend battery life.

One UI 6 Watch also features a new default line, and when you start playing music on your watch, Bluetooth headphones or speakers will automatically connect for playback. Only if Bluetooth audio devices are unavailable will the watch attempt to play through its speaker (if your music app supports it).
