Samsung is all set to introduce an array of exciting new apps for its Galaxy Watch lineup, and this news couldn’t have come at a better time – just days before their second Galaxy Unpacked event of the year! Brace yourselves, because these apps are sure to add some zing to your wearable experience.
First up, the ever-popular WhatsApp! It’s hardly a surprise that Meta, the parent company of WhatsApp, has decided to bring this messaging marvel to smartwatches.
For all, you Galaxy Watch4 and Watch5 owners, get ready to enjoy the convenience of responding to messages and calls right from your wrist! And the best part? You don’t even need your phone nearby, as it’s a standalone app.
Now, let’s keep it real here; WhatsApp on smartwatches might not be as robust as the full-fledged version on your phone. Certain features, such as Communities, will be conspicuously absent, and making calls is also off-limits.

Nevertheless, it’s a significant step forward in terms of enhancing the smartwatch experience.
Next, we have the incredibly handy Samsung Wallet. This gem of an app lets you pay with ease, flash your IDs, and even pull up show tickets – how cool is that?
Oh, and here’s a delightful bonus for all you scholarly folks out there – the support for university student IDs! You can leave those plastic cards behind and tap your way through 68 different colleges, from Penn State to the University of Florida.
We’re not entirely sure if Fast Mode or Power Reserve will be part of the smartwatch version, but we’ve got our fingers crossed. And if you’re curious like us, we’ve already reached out to the company for some juicy clarifications.
Lastly, say hello to Thermo Check – an app that brings the temperature sensor on your Galaxy Watch to life!
Previously, this sensor might have seemed like a dormant piece of hardware, but not anymore. Samsung breathed new life into it by introducing a cycle-tracking tool a few months back.
Now, they’ve taken it up a notch with the Thermo Check app, allowing you to measure the temperature of your surroundings with ease.
From checking the temperature of your food before taking a bite to make sure the water you’re about to swim in isn’t freezing, this app has got your back. And here’s a tip for all you tech-savvy folks – Thermo Check will debut on the upcoming Galaxy Watch6 series before making its way to the Watch 5.
Exciting times are ahead, indeed!
For those of you eager to try out these new apps, here’s the rundown: WhatsApp is already up for grabs on the Google Play Store, ready to make your messaging game on the Galaxy Watch a breeze.
Thermo Check will eventually make its way to the Watch 5 series, but not before wowing us on the Watch 6. As for Samsung Wallet, keep your eyes peeled – it’s set to arrive “later this summer.”
But that’s not all, folks! Samsung might just have a surprise up its sleeve for the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event, slated to begin on Wednesday, July 26 at 7 AM EST.
Could we witness the long-awaited debut of the Galaxy Watch 6? It’s all speculation for now, but hey, we can dream, can’t we?
So, gear up and get ready to elevate your Galaxy Watch experience with these amazing new apps. Your wrist will never be the same again! Stay tuned for our in-depth coverage of Galaxy Unpacked – we’ll make sure you don’t miss a beat. Get ready for the tech extravaganza of the year!
