Due to the small download size, it is possible to note that the software of the first Galaxy Watch will receive a very specific update, without any new applications or visible changes.

To see if your device is able to download the new feature, open the Galaxy Wearable app on the phone paired with the watch, tap the “Software Update” option, then select “Download and Install.” Now, just follow the onscreen instructions.
The Galaxy Watch 6 is scheduled to be launched in the second half of 2023 with a larger screen than the Galaxy Watch 5, without increasing the size of the box, according to rumors that circulated in early April. In this case, the size of the new screen will be 1.47 inches, compared to 1.40 of the previous model.
