Samsung is now rolling out a new firmware update R820XXU1CTJ5 for Galaxy Watch Active 2 that brings one more premium feature of Galaxy Watch 3. With the latest update, Active 2 users can now use voice guidance service during the exercises. It is the new function that was until now exclusive to a newer model. The Active 2 users can listen to voice support during the workout through the connected Bluetooth headsets or earbuds. In the voice guidance, it will also tell the walked distance and heart rate while performing automatic running and biking workouts.
While exercise you can set a goal and this running coach will tell you how you are performing. It also guides you about whether you have to slow down or need to run fast to reach the target. Furthermore, it encourages you to complete your daily goals. Samsung has done great work by bringing this function to all its Active 2 users. Even it is good that the company is offering it free for everyone when the Fitbit ask users to pay for their Coach premium subscription to unlock it. In the premium segment, Apple, Fitbit, or Garmin don’t offer this service to the users.
Further, the update brings stability to the overall functions and squashed minor bugs. Samsung has already brought fall detection, VO2 max, advanced running analysis, AR Emoji, Bitmoji, and scroll capture features to the Active 2. Now, the new function will make it more forward-looking among the premium watches. The latest firmware has been released in South Korea for the Bluetooth version, and soon it may hit in other countries.
