Unlocking a Universe of Health: The New Galaxy Watch AI Features

The latest trend in wearable technology is poised to change the game when it comes to health and fitness. Samsung’s Galaxy Watch is a game-changer. With an upcoming update, the watch will be equipped with a series of augmented-intelligence (AI) powered functions aimed at creating a wearable interface for intergalactic health. So, how will Samsung put AI on your wrist? Let’s dive in.


The new Galaxy Watch will get a major upgrade that will leverage AI to provide health insights and recommendations with deep, personalised context. One of the new features is Energy Score, which aggregates data on sleep, physical activity, and heart health into a detailed assessment of your own overall health and fitness. That’s the kind of insight that we don’t yet have metrics for – but we will.

Sleep Under the Stars: Enhanced Sleep Tracking

Astrology has always made the night sky mysterious, and now the Galaxy Watch aims to make your nocturnal habits a little more enigmatic too. By using AI-powered algorithms to provide more in-depth insights into your movements in bed, heart rate and breathing, even as you sleep, it builds on functionality such as its ability to track hours of snoring and blood oxygen levels.

A Galaxy of Motivation: Wellness Tips

Motivation can be hard to come by. It takes time and energy to stay fit. Ask any gym-owner why most people don’t go, and the answer is often that motivating oneself to go can be the most difficult part of any routine. Wellness Tips, the Galaxy Watch’s new feature, might make a good motivation-based nudge to ensure that you stay on track with your health goals.

Stellar Fitness Features: Training with AI

And for those who take their workouts seriously, the Galaxy Watch’s new features are akin to a hired workout coach at your beck and call. The smartwatch’s new features geared toward runners and cyclists promise to help you reach your potential. For cyclists, the watch will help you identify your optimal Functional Threshold Power (FTP), the measure of how efficiently you can sustain a high power output for an extended period. This in turn will help you train for each specific period. With these measures, you will be able to better understand just how hard you are working and when, thus staying within your optimal training windows.

Charting New Routes: The Race and Workout Routine Features

The Galaxy Watch is not just about monitoring – it’s about always pushing harder. For example, the new Race feature invites you to beat your best times, while the Workout Routine feature makes the transition between sets of different exercise frictionless, so you can create a run of your own to stay in the zone.

A Universe of Possibilities: Future Integrations

Samsung explicitly suggests that the Galaxy Watch will be the first device to receive these AI-powered features, which are expected to be rolled out across the Galaxy family ‘and beyond’ (elsewhere, Samsung teases the Galaxy Ring to suggest that its ambitions extend beyond wrist designs). The company envisions a future in which your Galaxy devices function in tandem, collaborating to keep you at your healthiest.

Galaxy Watch One UI 6 Update: A Cosmic Upgrade

Those changes are coming in a version of One UI 6, expected to roll out later this year as a software update to all Watch users. In June, a select group will be able to try out the beta version of the update. The new user interface is a landmark development in wearable technology, offering features that are not just useful – they will even transform what it means to wear an AI-powered little computer on your wrist that can give you some truly personal insights into your health.

Exploring the Galaxy: Understanding Our Universe

Returning to the proverbial point of origin, it’s curious to consider how technology, the Galaxy Watch in particular, offers a kind of parallel in terms of our orientation in the larger, broader viewing of the Universe. Stripping away the qualifying ‘dark’ from the word, a galaxy clearly refers to some large-scale gravitationally bound system of stars, stellar remnants, interstellar gas, dust, and dark matter, i.e. massive, complicated, beautiful (and, for us), it’s a system of systems featuring a multitude of celestial bodies. The Galaxy Watch aims to become the same kind of holistic, interconnected system for the management of our personal health and fitness. The decision to adopt AI features for the Galaxy Watch is proof positive that our orientation is an ongoing process, not just as it relates to space ‘out there’, but to the entire ‘universe’ of human experiences, bodily and otherwise.

The Galaxy Watch is set to become an even more integral part of our daily lives, bringing AI benefits from the cloud to people’s wrists. We already give our ‘souls’ away to our screens. Next, we’ll be beaming information back to them, by way of our wrists. The night sky is a captivating place to seek inspiration. Soon, we may find that it has a rival.
