Galaxy Watch 5 and 4 models can now install the beta version of One UI 6

Samsung’s One UI Watch 6 beta is now available for the Galaxy Watch 5 and 4 series, going beyond exclusive availability for the Watch 6.

The One UI Watch 6 beta includes some changes to health tracking and other features. One of the main new features is the addition of Galaxy AI to sleep information, which should allow users to see a better overall picture of their nighttime activity. Another change is the ability to use a pinch gesture to select items on the screen outside of accessibility mode, which is sometimes restrictive.

Today, it appears that Samsung is now allowing Galaxy Watch 5 and 4 users to try out the new version of One UI Watch 6 software in the US, expanding the availability of the Watch 6. The One UI Watch 6 beta will be available for select Watch 5 and 4 models, excluding some “special edition” models.

A major issue when the One UI Watch 6 beta was released for the Galaxy Watch 6 was its limitation to Bluetooth-only models, excluding LTE variants. The new page in the Samsung Members app indicates that this limitation is still in effect. Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 4 LTE models will not be eligible. The page does not specify why this is the case.

Users can find the One UI Watch 6 beta through the Samsung Members app. At the top of the app, a card will announce the beta version. Just tap and press Join for your watch model. From there, an update will be sent to your Galaxy Wearable app and Galaxy Watch.

This comes just ahead of the launch of the Galaxy Watch 7 and Watch 7 Ultra models at Samsung Unpacked in Paris. When the Galaxy Watch 7 arrives, it will support One UI Watch 6 based on Wear OS out of the box.

Samsung is currently running a free promotion that allows users to sign up to reserve a $50 credit to use towards the new devices. By signing up, you are entered to win $5,000. If you are planning to trade in your Galaxy Watch for a Watch 7, it’s definitely worth signing up for a $50 credit.
