Samsung made its move to Wear OS in the last year but has basically revamped Google’s offering with the OS. The company, however, takes its own path providing the OS with the One UI Watch skin running above. The skin brings exclusive features for Galaxy and has optimizations that will be only found on Galaxy Watches. The company is working on the One UI 4.5 update, and today is rolling out the One UI 4.5 beta 2 for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.
To those unaware, Samsung has opened the beta program for the Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and Watch4 Classic in the last month. Now, the company is rolling out the second beta with the R860XXU1ZVF5 serial. The update is rolling out in South Korea.
