Samsung’s smartwatches may soon be able to work better on wrists with tattoos.
Samsung community moderator confirms that Samsung developers are working hard to improve the wear detection for users with wrist tattoos.
This feature will be released later in the year.
You’re not the only one who has trouble using a Galaxy Watch due to tattoos. This problem is not limited to Samsung smartwatches. This is a problem that people with wrist tattoos often face, whether they’re using a Galaxy Watch or an Apple Watch. The sensors cannot see through tattoo ink, and, in some cases, the wearable detection does not work. Samsung is working on a solution.
Samsung Community Post Noticed by SamMobileThe company has finally shown some love for its tattooed customers. The moderator of the Galaxy Wear application confirmed that Samsung is working on adding a feature that should improve wear detection for users with tattoos on their arms. This means the ink from your wrist tattoo won’t interfere with the Galaxy Watch’s sensors. It should then be able to recognize you wearing the device.
Updates should be available in the second quarter of this year. The exact release date is unknown. Galaxy Watches may get this feature with the release of One UI 5 Watch. We believe the software is in beta right now and will be released in time for the Galaxy Watch 6 launch in late July.
