The next generation of Samsung smartwatches, called Galaxy Watch 6 series, would bring the physical rotating bezel in the Pro model. Like its predecessors, the upcoming smartwatches would be based on Google WearOS platform with Samsung OneUI layered on top. Therefore, there would be support of Google apps for smartwatches besides Samsung own. Among the new features would be native support for instant messaging app WhatsApp, which was recently announced by Meta. Besides, the smartwatches would get Samsung Wallet and Samsung Thermo Check features.
Announced recently, the Thermo Check app would allow users to measure the temperature of their surroundings, from meals they are about to eat to water they are about to swim in, all without any physical contact required. Like the Samsung Wallet app, the Thermo Check will be available first on the upcoming Galaxy Watch devices. It would later be available for the Galaxy Watch5 series.
