Samsung pushes One UI to its Galaxy Wearable app

Samsung introduced its revamped One UI interface in November. The company claims the new design is more intuitive and requires less finger movement on large screens. In addition, it brings a dark mode for stock apps and system elements, which looks sleek and saves battery on OLED displays.

Since then, almost all Samsung-branded software has been updated to reflect the new theme, but the Galaxy Wearable app seemed to have been left aside, despite the release of a new version mid-February (APK Mirror). The company appears to be fixing this with the rollout of an update that gives it One UI's new looks.

[Deal Alert] Samsung Gear IconX wireless earbuds drop another $10 to $149.89

The first time Samsung took a swing at completely wireless earbuds, the results weren't great. However, the 2018 revision of the Gear IconX was much better.

And for Black Friday, you can pick up a set for $149.99, a not-insignificant $50 off MSRP.

[Update OOS] Deal Alert: Samsung's truly wireless Bluetooth headphones, the Gear IconX on sale for just $79.99 at TechRabbit ($70 off)

We've been calling Bluetooth headphones, 'wireless headphones' for quite some time now. However, truly wireless headphones are a fairly new phenomena. This new generation of completely wire-free headphones are more liberating than ever, but come with a couple of trade-offs from more traditional Bluetooth earbuds. One is battery life, which tends to be shorter, and the other is price, which tends to be higher – but not today.
