Samsung Galaxy Watch 7: AI-driven health to take centre stage

The excitement surrounding Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Watch 7 series is well-founded, with new details emerging about its health-focused AI features. Set to launch on July 24th (or July 10th), the series aims to elevate our understanding and management of health, fitness, and overall well-being.

AI-drive health and fitness features

At the forefront of this innovation is Samsung’s AI-powered “Energy Core.” This feature analyzes your sleep patterns, heart rate, activity levels, and wake times, providing a comprehensive overview of your current state. While the naming convention is different, this sounds like the recovery metric that can be found on Garmin, Whoop and some other devices. Fitbit’s Daily Readiness Score is something similar.

But AI isn’t just about data; it’s about personalization. The Galaxy Watch 7 series will offer tailored tips and workout routines that align with your individual goals. Whether you’re striving for better sleep, enhanced fitness, or simply optimizing your daily routine, the Watch 7 acts as a knowledgeable companion on your wrist.

Sleep, a cornerstone of overall health, will be a key focus for Samsung. The Watch 7 series is set to utilise enhanced AI-powered sleep tracking to monitor movement, heart rate, breathing, and how long it takes you to fall asleep. This detailed analysis will aim to illuminate potential sleep issues and suggest adjustments for more restful nights.

For those who enjoy running and cycling, the Watch 7 will advanced metrics like customizable heart rate zones, functional threshold power (FTP) data. There will also be a dedicated “Race” feature. 

Coming in months ahead

Samsung’s is apparently planning to roll out these AI health features later this year through the One UI 6 update. It will be interesting to see whether they are only reserved for the new models or if the older generations will benefit, as well.
