As mentioned by Samsung in the latest post, it has now distributed a new update for Galaxy Watch Active 2 & Galaxy Watch 3 smartwatches. The new update brings a couple of features of the Galaxy Watch 4 along with some fresh watch faces. The firmware version R84*XXU1CUK2 is rolling out for Galaxy Watch 3 & firmware number R82*XXU1EUK2 is released for Galaxy Watch Active 2 models. The first thing we noticed in the latest version is the new 10 themes for the older Tizen watches.
The fresh-looking Analog dashboard, Premium Analog, Cute Character, Big Number, Active, Endangered Animals, Color Duo, Simple Classic, and Animals watch faces are now available for previous watches. Along with it, Samsung has brought Group Challenge Widget on the watch.
It has also improved calorie consumption tracking in HR. In fall detection, Samsung has added a Sensitivity option to detect more falls, though it has warned that some exercises may be detected as hard falls.
Finally, in the Calendar, the synchronized period has been extended to 1 year from 3 months. Samsung has officially confirmed some of its Watch 4 features & watch faces will come to older Tizen watches including the original Galaxy Watch & Galaxy Watch Active.
The remaining Tizen watches will soon receive the same treatment in the coming days. For the latest update, check the Galaxy Wearable app for any unfinished firmware updates. The update is released in South Korea, Germany & the US at the time of writing this article.
