The Galaxy Watch 4 features and watch faces are now reaching the original Galaxy Watch & Galaxy Watch Active. Recently, the firmware was released for Watch 3 & Active 2 wearables, and now Samsung seeded it on older watches. Both devices have received a major update after months of waiting, but it is worth waiting. Samsung has brought new watch faces including some fresh-looking designs. It has also enhanced the user experience by adding new features to the core.
Samsung has added the Group challenge widget to participate in the health competition with your friends. Also, there is a slight improvement in calorie consumption while performing exercises based on HR. The sensor has bumped with more accuracy and sliced recognition time in automatic workout modes. The real-time ongoing icon has appeared on watch faces for walking/running exercises to pause, resume, or stop it. Like Watch 4 & Watch 3, the finish timer will appear at the end of workouts.
In the Calendar feature, users can synchronize data for the last 1 year. The changelog is the same for both Galaxy Watch & Watch Active smartwatches. It is now rolling out in the US, Canada, India, Argentina, Brazil, and most of the European countries. The firmware version R800XXU1GUJ3 is rolling out for Galaxy Watch, and firmware R500XXU1GUJ3 for Galaxy Watch Active. Do check Galaxy Wearable app for any pending updates.
