Samsung Presents New Watch Experience With a Sneak Peek of One UI Watch.
Samsung Electronics unveiled its new smartwatch interface at the Mobile World conference, for the operating system it co-developed with Alphabet Inc’s Google.
The One UI Watch interface will come with the new Galaxy Watch for a more seamless experience between the smartwatch and Android smartphones, the company said in a statement.
Activities on the watch will be replicated on linked mobile devices. For example, if an user installs watch-compatible apps on a smartphone, they will be downloaded onto the smartwatch as well.
“To unlock the full potential of these wearables, we’re leveraging our long legacy of mobile innovations and our partnerships with trusted industry leaders who have grown with us in our open ecosystem,” said Patrick Chomet, EVP and Head of Customer Experience Office.
Later this year, Samsung will introduce a new design tool to make it easier for designers to create new watch faces, it added.
