Good news for Gear S2 users, Samsung has released a new firmware update for a 4-year-old smartwatch. The Samsung Gear S2 has received a new version after almost two years. The last update had seeded on the watch in 2018. The firmware version R730AUCU3CQK1 is now releasing for the watch that weighs 6.79MB in size. The new update has got the new interface of Galaxy Watch Active 2 that you will see all the icons & widgets the same as the new Galaxy watches.
The new version will improve the battery usage time of the Gear S2 smartwatch. It is now a very old smartwatch so Samsung tried to enhance its battery life. After the use in daily life, we will get a clear picture of the battery life though it is good that Samsung is trying to drive it longer. The company has also implemented a stability code for device security. It kills minor bugs to increase the overall quality of the watch.
As we noticed, users can now delete all the notifications at once. Previously, you have to clear all the notifications one at a time. The firmware number of the new version and the last update are the same but this time it releases to improve the security & battery life of the wearable. To get the latest version go to Settings – About Gear & Update Gear.
The characters QK1 in the firmware naming mean 2017 (Q), November release (K), first build (1). Definitely not new.
R730AUCU3CQK1 isn’t new. That update is from December 2017 and was followed by R730AUCU3DRC1
I found about the update and it bricked my gear s2. Is there any way to revive it? Thanks!
Is this coming to Verizon S2 3G version (SM-R730V) as well?
Hello, please can you provide screenshots of the system? I have a gear s2 3g (not recieved yet the update) and intrested to see the watch active 2 ui in action.
