Samsung Galaxy Watch 4’s fourth One UI Watch 4.5 beta starts rolling out with plenty of bug fixes

While Samsung is gearing up for the launch of the Galaxy Watch 5 series, the company is also reminding users that it hasn’t forgotten about the Galaxy Watch 4 lineup by releasing a fresh new update through its One UI Watch beta program. It may take a few more rounds of beta releases before we see the stable One UI Watch 4.5 lands on these devices, but the Korean OEM is making steady progress in that direction. Now, the fourth One UI Watch beta based on Wear OS 3.5 is available for the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic.
