  • Samsung is offering up to $100 in trade-in credit for select older Tizen-powered Galaxy Watch models.
  • This credit can be applied towards the purchase of the Galaxy Watch 6, Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, or Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.
  • Samsung is phasing out support for Tizen OS, ultimately leading to the discontinuation of core services after May 2025

Samsung, a familiar name among top-tier smartwatches currently, is incentivizing owners of Tizen-powered Galaxy Watches to upgrade to the latest Wear OS models with an enhanced trade-in program. The company recently announced the gradual discontinuation of Tizen, meaning that the functionality of Tizen-based watches will diminish over time, ultimately leading to a complete end of support.

But, instead of leaving Tizen watch owners in the lurch, Samsung is offering a fantastic trade-in program to sweeten the deal. The company’s website is providing up to $100 in trade-in credit for its Tizen-based watches, including the Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Watch 3, Galaxy Watch Active, and Galaxy Watch Active 2.
