Based on this, the user can work out by selecting the right heart rate range for their purpose. Section 1 is suitable for warming up with the slowest heart rate, and for general high-intensity exercise, it is appropriate to choose Zone 4.

Meanwhile, the GPS Exchange Format (GPX) route guidance function, which is available with the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, has also been enhanced. Running and walking have been added to the existing workout types, hiking and cycling, making it easier for users to check their location and work out.

It will also share the user’s location and medical details with the department. One UI 5 Watch will also enable Fall Detection by default for users aged 55 or older.
