The Galaxy Watch Active 2 has become the first Samsung wearable to receive a major update in 2021. Just after announcing the Galaxy S21 series & Galaxy Buds Pro, the company has released major firmware for Active 2. The latest software brings a couple of features, enhancements, and changes to the smartwatch. Now with the Samsung Health app, users can challenge or compete with their friends and also get feedback. As per the changelog, users will get additional sleep scores and meaningful information.
The automatic workout detection is faster than before, and it is helpful with three sports – running, rowing machine & elliptical. It was the main concern of users about slow workout detection, especially in running & walking. We have to now use it to tell exactly how fast it will detect our exercises.
In the latest version, Samsung has also launched home training & many other fitness programs for Galaxy Watch Active 2. All the new premium smartwatches are offering such kinds of coaching programs, so Samsung has taken a good decision to keep the Active 2 forward-looking watch.
In the last, with the help of the SmartThings Find function, users can easily search their smartwatch if they have forgotten where they have put it. With the map location, it will trace the last location of your smartwatch.
Further, Hand Wash will automatically detect when you are washing your hand and start the counting. The new firmware version R820XXU1DUA3 for Active 2 is available in South Korea, and soon, it will come to other countries.
