This move ended the usage of its own custom “Tizen OS” for its newer smartwatches beginning from the newer Galaxy watch 4. However, the company has pledged to continue to support its own Tizen OS smartwatches.

That means the Galaxy Watch, Watch 3, Watch Active and Galaxy Watch Active will get new watch faces and health features. These new updates are part of the recently released One UI 4 OS.

Samsung version of its walkie talkie has more range than Apple’s version. The Samsung app allows more than 2 people to communicate using the app, whereas Apple’s is just two.

Earlier Samsung teased its new smartwatch chip, the Exynos W920. This is Samsung’s 5nm processor to power its next generation of wearables, an industry first.

There is a little bit of caveat though for the new walkie talkie app. It doesn’t work on previous Tizen OS versions of the Galaxy Watch. That means in order to try out this new feature, you have to splash the cash on the new  Wear OS Galaxy watches.
