Samsung formalizes One UI Watch4.5 for Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic

Samsung Tuesday announcement One UI Watch4.5 software update for Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic. While Samsung hasn’t specifically announced when the update will start appearing on the company’s latest smartwatches, we have a good idea of ​​what to expect when it does.

Samsung has added a QWERTY keyboard to make it easier to enter information or reply to messages on the watch. The keyboard keys are small, but you can use Swipe to type. Previously, you could use dictation or a handwriting feature to enter text.

For those with a Watch 4 cellular model, you will now have a dual SIM option. I don’t know how many people use a cellular watch, let alone two active SIM cards, but apparently Samsung thought it was worth adding the ability to switch between active SIM cards.

Once you receive the update, you will also be able to have multiple instances of the same watch face, each with different colors and complications. You will also have the option to mark your favorite faces for easier access.

Finally, Samsung has added a handful of new accessibility features. The list includes the ability to adjust the tint of the display for easier readability, reducing or removing transparency, blurring effects, and animations. The option to extend the time it takes to register a tap on the watch screen can also be adjusted, along with the option to ignore repeated taps.
