Samsung today introduced its One UI Watch user experience at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2021. The company said that its new Galaxy Watch will be the first device to feature One UI Watch and the new unified platform jointly built with Google.
As part of the new experience, once you install watch-compatible apps on your smartphone, they will be automatically downloaded onto your smartwatch. If you’ve customized your clock app on your phone to show the time in different cities around the globe, this will be automatically reflected on your watch as well.
The unified platform will also open up new features and integrations with popular third-party apps available to download from Google Play directly on your Galaxy Watch.
“Samsung and Google have a long history of collaboration and whenever we’ve worked together, the experience for our consumers has been dramatically better for everyone,” said Sameer Samat, Vice President of Product Management, Android and Wear, Google.
“That certainly holds true for this new, unified platform, which will be rolling out for the first time on Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch.”
In addition, Samsung will bring an improved watch face design tool, making it easier than ever for designers to create new watch faces.
