The days are getting longer, the temperatures warmer, and winter is slowly coming to an end. Maybe you’ve already done your spring cleaning and got your running shoes out of the cellar.
For all outdoor fans with a handy smartwatch – we have some great news for you! The Nuki Smart Lock can now also be conveniently controlled with the Garmin Smartwatch and all Samsung Galaxy Smartwatches with Tizen OS!
So now, after your next run or mountain bike tour, you can simply unlock your Nuki Smart Lock with a quick swipe on your wrist. We want to offer you more flexibility with your Smart Lock and integrate it into your everyday life in an even smarter way. As a result, the solutions have been simplified and optimised so that they run smoothly on almost all Garmin and Samsung smartwatches.
But we are not done yet. We plan on gradually expanding the range of features this year to offer even more possibilities for your smartwatch. That is why the new apps for your smartwatch are still marked as “beta” and are currently only available in German and English. If you use your Nuki app in another language, the app for your Garmin or Galaxy Smartwatch will automatically be displayed in English until your language version is available. This way you can use the Nuki app for your Smartwatch right away.
The next focus on our roadmap includes the implementation of further languages. The second extension concerns the direct control of the Smart Lock via Bluetooth. Technical feasibility studies are already underway. Good news for all those who prefer to enjoy their sports session in nature without a smartphone. In the future, unlocking will be even easier because you will only need your smartwatch.
Note: At this stage, it is still required that you have your smartphone with you. With the current beta version, it is not possible to open your electronic door lock exclusively with your Garmin or Galaxy Smartwatch if it is not connected to your smartphone.
Compatibility with Tizen OS and Garmin Watch OS was probably the feature most frequently requested by all Nuki users since the implementation of Apple HomeKit. And we’re all the more delighted to be able to fulfil this wish right at the start of the outdoor season.
We hope you enjoy the new update and take full advantage of the outdoor season – with Nuki.

Nerd? Designer? Smart Home enthusiast? Probably a little bit of everything. I am fascinated by new technology, different ways of thinking, and cat videos. Trekkie? Warsie? I'd say about 30:70 – I don't like seeing things in black and white, although I'd make an exception for interior design.
