The brand new Galaxy Watch may see the most important change in years as Samsung adjustments course dramatically

The Samsung Galaxy Watch is still one of the most popular smartwatches in the world, but something could change for fans of these tech timepieces. Rumors are buzzing around the internet suggesting that Samsung will release the next iteration of its Galaxy Watch later this year and there could be a monumental change.

According to the latest findings, the Korean tech company could drop its Tizen operating system and switch back to Google software – something it hasn’t done in over six years.

Top tech tipster Ice Universe revealed via a post on Twitter: “Samsung’s new watch will use Android as a replacement for Tizen.” It is currently not clear which operating system could be available in the future. Some suggest that Google’s Wear operating system may make a comeback.

Some may view this as an odd move by Samsung, especially since Tizen has improved so much in recent years. However, switching back to Google software can help improve the Galaxy Watch’s usability, especially when connecting to Android phones.

Another advantage of Google is that the platform has more compatible apps and a much larger selection of watch faces that make it easier to customize the device.

We’ll have to wait and see what Samsung has announced in the coming months but don’t expect any upcoming news as it is unlikely that a new Galaxy Watch will be unveiled anytime soon, with this device updated unusually over the summer.

For those who already own the latest, greatest Samsung watch, there is more good news this week as the company releases some great new features for these devices.

The new update offers the ability to measure your blood pressure right from your wrist – something that even the leader in this category, the Apple Watch, can’t manage right now.

Blood pressure monitoring uses a new technology developed by Samsung called pulse wave analysis.

Samsung can use the built-in sensors to track your heart rate anywhere, anytime. The Samsung algorithm analyzes the relationship between the calibration value already entered into the device and the change in blood pressure to determine blood pressure.

The other new upgrade is to take an electrocardiogram or EKG right from your wrist. This is a feature Samsung is catching up with Apple, which has been offering this feature since 2018 with the release of the Series 4 Apple Watch.
