Samsung has recently revealed the One UI 5 Watch, which will power the next-gen Galaxy smartwatches. Before its official debut, the company promised to begin the One UI 5 Watch Beta program for Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5 and revealed some features.
Meanwhile, Google announced yesterday that the Wear OS 4 will introduce “a new text-to-speech experience that is faster and more reliable.” This means the Galaxy Watch’s One UI 5 Watch will surely include the enhanced TTS functionality, scheduled to release later this year.
For starters, TTS (Text-to-speech) is a technology, which turns text into audio. It can read aloud PDFs, websites, and books using AI-generated voice. Mainly, it’s helpful for those with dyslexia or visual impairment. However, TTS can also be used to create audiobooks, podcasts, and other audio content.
Benefits of Text to speech
- Help people who have difficulty reading.
- Create audiobooks, podcasts, and other audio content.
- Learn new languages.
- Listen to news and information while you are doing other things.
At the I/O 2023, Google highlighted that big updates are coming to the Wear OS platform. Later on, the company delivered two new sound and display modes to improve watch customization. Until the official debut of Wear OS 4, we will continue to witness more new additions and features.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Revolutionizes Running with University of Michigan Partnership
Thanks to Samsung’s research partnership, the Galaxy Watch 6 revolutionizes running with the University of Michigan Exercise & Sport Science Initiative. This collaboration is launched to help runners manage their health and physical activity by providing more reliable and accurate data.
The Michigan Performance Research Laboratory (MiPR) — ESSI’s core research lab — will oversee an eight-month study that uses the Galaxy Watch series to estimate the VO2 max and sweat loss of participants as they run.
The study will compare reference data against smartwatch data from both indoor (treadmill) and outdoor running trials of different distances, from 2.5km to 20km.
Runners at all levels grapple with sweat loss, dehydration and heat management, particularly during the summer months. Samsung and University of Michigan teams hope the study’s findings will further enhance smartwatch technology, giving runners more accurate measurements of their health metrics.
Galaxy Watch 6
Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic feature personalized fitness coaching, advanced sleep management, and health monitoring. For runners, the new Personalized Heart Rate Zone feature provides five optimal running intensity levels based on individual physical capabilities.
Additionally, Track Run helps runners record their runs while on a running track. During a run, Galaxy Watch provides in-depth analysis including asymmetry, regularity, and ground contact time to help improve performance and reduce injury.
