TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience at Samsung Electronics, expressed his excitement about the new releases, stating, “With the new Galaxy Watch6 and Galaxy Watch6 Classic, we are delivering on our commitment to democratize advanced health monitoring tools, now offering easier access right from the wrist. From sleep and fitness coaching to nutritional insights, Samsung is providing new and convenient ways to help users gain understanding and take action for better health and wellness, every day and every night.”
Personalized Guidance for Enhanced Sleep and Fitness
The Galaxy Watch6 series is committed to helping users lead healthier lives by offering personalized insights and actionable advice. Recognizing the importance of quality sleep, Samsung provides in-depth analysis of Sleep Score Factors, such as total sleep time, sleep cycle, awake time, physical and mental recovery, to help users understand their sleep patterns better. Additionally, the watch offers individualized Sleep Messages co-developed with the National Sleep Foundation, providing detailed feedback about users’ sleep health each morning.
To aid users in making positive changes to their sleep habits, the Enhanced Sleep Coaching feature provides tailored instructions, tips, and reminders accessible on the watch and paired smartphone. Moreover, the Galaxy Watch6 can create an optimal sleep environment by automatically adjusting connected home electronics and activating Sleep Mode to mute notifications, dim screens, and deliver health insights using the invisible LED infrared sensor.
Fitness enthusiasts will find a range of personalized features to stay motivated and reach their goals. The Body Composition feature provides key physical measurements, including skeletal muscle, basal metabolic rate, body water, and body fat percentage, for a comprehensive snapshot of the user’s body and fitness level. The new partnership with Whisk brings nutritional tips and guidance, enhancing users’ overall fitness journey.
Innovative Design and Enhanced Viewing Experience
The Galaxy Watch6 series comes with all-new designs that offer better viewing and greater power. The 20% larger display allows for more content on the screen, and the higher resolution display with a peak brightness of 2,000 nits ensures clear visibility even under bright sunlight. The enhanced processor and memory provide smoother and faster interactions.
The watch’s design has been refined with a 30% slimmer bezel and a 15% thinner rotating bezel, enhancing the elegance of the signature circle frame. With new stylish, interactive, and informative watch faces, users can customize their Galaxy Watch6 to suit their preferences. One-click bands allow for easy mix and match, and the lightweight Fabric Band and Sleep Coaching watch face offer comfort and informative sleep insights.
Maximizing the User Experience
The Galaxy Watch6 series brings a range of capabilities right to users’ wrists. Users can stay connected with friends and family through WhatsApp without needing to use their phone. New apps from Google Calendar and Gmail on Wear OS enable productivity right from the watch. Fitness progress and nutritional data can be easily tracked with updates from Peloton and MyFitnessPal, while Audible provides additional streaming options. A new Skin Temperature API allows partners to access advanced infrared technology for accurate measurements and opens up possibilities for various applications, such as the Thermo Check app for contact-free temperature measurement.
Further enhancing the user experience, the Galaxy Watch6 series works seamlessly with other Samsung devices. The Camera Controller enables remote control of a paired Galaxy Z Flip5 camera, and Samsung Smart TV or Galaxy Tab S9 displays progress in real time with guided fitness or mindfulness programs. The Auto Switch feature automatically toggles the connection of Galaxy Buds2 Pro between Samsung devices. Additionally, Find My Phone with map support helps users locate their misplaced phones.
Secure personal data with Samsung Knox security platform remains a top priority.
