Most city dwellers experience sleep problems to one degree or another. Some find it difficult to rest at night, others sleep less than they should, and others do not fully recover by morning. Samsung smartwatches help solve these problems.
Advanced hardware, precise sensors
Computing in the Galaxy Watch6 is powered by the Exynos W930 chip, which is 18% faster than the processor in the previous generation model. As befits an advanced smartwatch, there are many sensors installed here to monitor the external environment and monitor the owner’s well-being. There are temperature, heart rate and light sensors, a compass, an accelerometer, a barometer, a gyroscope and a universal 3‑in‑1 bioactive sensor. There is also a built-in microphone. As a result, the device not only tracks your workouts, but also analyzes your sleep quality.
The watch evaluates the level of oxygen saturation in the blood during the night’s rest. SpO2 is calculated automatically. This function is not designed to independently identify diseases, but gives an idea of the user’s well-being during sleep.
Another convenient option is recording snoring. You can activate it yourself in the settings. While you sleep, the watch will monitor extraneous sounds, and if snoring is detected, it will record it. Although it is not a dangerous condition and more of a symptom of abnormal breathing, snoring may indicate problems with well-being due to lack of oxygen during sleep. If the watch often records it, this is a reason to consult a doctor.
Convenient widget and special watch face
Galaxy Watch6 runs WearOS 4 with OneUI 5 shell. It’s not just a responsive and intuitive interface. The shell has functions that make it easy to monitor your night’s rest. For example, a special Sleep Coaching watch face. It is visual and even funny — an animal whose sleep type matches yours is displayed on the screen. To do this, the watch monitors your sleep quality throughout the week, collecting statistics and assessing how you rest. There could be a penguin or a shark on the screen — the comparison is, of course, approximate, but it makes everyday monitoring more interesting. The display also displays your rest data for the past night in the form of charts and personalized tips for improving your sleep quality.
If you don’t want to turn the main watch face into a personal vacation schedule, there’s nothing stopping you from tracking it using the widget. It is called by swiping on the watch screen or scrolling the touch bezel. Here you can find the total sleep time and its assessment, and after tapping on the card, you can find out about its phases and stability, and also get acquainted with the skin temperature during rest.
Visual Samsung Health app
All data obtained during sleep will be available in a report that can be found in the Samsung Health application. It collects rest statistics over many years, so it can be used to conveniently monitor health indicators over a long period of time. When using the Galaxy Watch6, the data is synchronized with the application automatically — you just need to go into the program to view the final report.
A sleep timeline is available in the app. It allows you to track the amount of time the user spends on rest. You can also view statistics for the week or set a sleep norm to better control your sleep schedule.
Detailed statistics are also uploaded to Samsung Health — the user’s skin temperature during rest, snoring, and blood oxygen saturation level. There is also a diagram with phases: you can find out what the duration of fast and deep sleep is, how they alternated, and whether there were any awakenings at night.
All factors influencing sleep are added up to a single scale. If it is blue, the result is satisfactory, but if it is red, it is not. The program will give you points and advise you to pay attention to specific features that interfere with a comfortable night’s rest. Overall sleep quality is assessed by a number of factors. For example, by the duration and number of rest phases. The physical recovery score is based on the time spent in the deep phase, and the wakefulness score reflects how many times your rest was interrupted during the night.
Samsung Galaxy Watch6 is a great companion for those who want to get a good night’s sleep and feel refreshed and not groggy the next morning. These watches won’t improve your sleep on their own, but they will give you detailed advice and help you identify problems like snoring or not getting enough rest. Advanced sensors will ensure high-quality monitoring of key indicators, and the proprietary Health application will delight you with detailed and visual statistics that are convenient to analyze.
