In addition to AI-powered features, the One UI 6 Watch Beta is also said to introduce better ways to control the Galaxy Watch. Users can now flick the horizontally and quickly scroll through notifications.

A new double pinch action – activated by pinching the thumb and index finger together twice – is also introduced. With this simple gesture, Samsung says users can take actions such as answering calls, turning off alarms, scrolling through notifications, taking pictures and more.

Other actions, such as flicking the wrist to go back and tapping the bottom of the screen to see a list of activities, are also integrated.

Samsung says users can now control certain features of the Galaxy Watch, such as do not disturb, always on display and raise wrist to wake, with modes. With One UI 6 Watch Beta, an option is introduced to customise notifications, so that users receive alerts from the apps they choose.

A new default font is also introduced with a “more stylish and modern feel”. Samsung says users can make their Galaxy Watch last even longer by turning off select health features.

When Bluetooth devices are available and paired, the Galaxy Watch is claimed to automatically connect to them for playback.
