It took Samsung a few months, but the skin temperature sensor on the Galaxy Watch5 and Watch5 Pro was finally enabled last week after Samsung finally got around to enabling it. However, at the moment, these sensors are only utilized for one feature, which is cycle tracking based on the user’s skin temperature.
However, that’s just the beginning of it. An employee from Samsung revealed the news in a post that was made on the Korean forum that the business maintains. The post said that further temperature-based capabilities are currently being developed and that they will be supplied with subsequent software updates.
The Galaxy Watch5 series will have new skin temperature-based functions from Samsung.
The timeframe of the release, on the other hand, is not yet known; such health-tracking capabilities may be subject to certification requirements by local authorities in each location; this is one of the reasons why work has been so delayed.
One feature that may be included is a simple readout of the wearer’s current temperature. You are unable to view the reading at this time since it is a secret value that is only utilized by the watch in its computations.
In any case, there is a fair likelihood that the new features will make their debut with the next Galaxy Watch6 series, and there is also a good probability that they will be back-ported to the Watch5 series at some point in the future. Late in the month of July is when we should see the new models.
