[Updated] Latest Wear OS update damaged ‘raise to wake’ feature for Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, Watch 4

Samsung Watch 5 raise to wake

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5 have recently got the feature-packed January 2023 update that made the wearables more useful. But for some users, the update has damaged the performance of the wearables. Various users of Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 4 are reporting about the faulty “raise to wake” feature.

The raise to wake gesture of wearables is a fairly valuable feature for customers. It is smart enough to know when to turn the watch on and off. It allows users to view time, date, or notifications just by simply raising their wrist, making it handly while driving, etc.

But multiple users of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5 are complaining about the erratic behavior of the raise to wake gesture (via PiunikaWeb). Many users have mentioned that the issue is occurring only after the latest software update, before that it was working fine.

Samsung Watch 5 raise to wake

According to users’ reports, every time they lift their wrist to wake up the watch, the screen turns off almost immediately. It only stays on for a couple of seconds, leaving users unable to see the time properly. Some customers even tried full diagnostics on the watch but everything appeared fine there.

I believe that a smartwatch should go to sleep shortly after a wake-up gesture unless further tasks are performed on it so that it can save the battery of the watch. But the watchful time these Galaxy watches are giving after raise to wake is performed is too less, and it should be resolved soon.

There are various reports on the Samsung members community and Reddit platforms that talks about the mentioned problem. However, Samsung is silent, maybe it is addressing the issue before saying anything to the users.

Updated on February 8:

The Galaxy Watch users are still encountering problems with the raise to wake gestures on their wearables. A user living in India said he recently got an update on his Watch 4 LTE that adds a Bluetooth toggle to the Quick panel. At the same time, he expressed that this update has still not fixed the broken raise-to-wake gesture.
