Future Galaxy Watch upgrade could finally make it reliable for people with tattoos

Samsung is working on improving its Galaxy Watches’ ability to run biometric tests on tattooed skin.

We’re using a translation provided by SamMobile as this information comes from a moderator on the official Samsung Korean forums. In a response to a user having trouble getting their Galaxy Watch 5 to work on their tattooed wrist, the moderator claims the company’s developers are trying to figure out a way to improve the wearable’s skin detection feature. It is going to take some time until we see the patch, however, as it won’t release until sometime during the “second half of 2023″. Upon release, tattooed owners of a Samsung wearable should begin to receive device notifications without a hitch.
