The new firmware version is coming with several faces for them that were released with the Galaxy Watch 4 and can also be customized. Among the devices that will receive the update are:
- Galaxy Watch
- Galaxy Watch Active
- Galaxy Watch Active 2
- Galaxy Watch 3
Furthermore, the first models to receive the update will be the Bluetooth versions, while those with mobile data support are expected to receive the new version in the future.
Another benefit of the new version is the Watch 4 drop detection with different levels of sensitivity even when the user is stationary, which will also reach the Galaxy Watch 3 and Active 2.
Models are also getting the new Workout Group Challenge widget, providing improved calorie consumption data based on heart rate.
The update also improves the sensor’s performance to automatically recognize workouts, a new status icon and the calendar app can now store data for an entire year instead of just 3 months.
The update is initially being distributed in South Korea, United States, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Europe and India through the Galaxy Wearable app with version Rx00XXU1GUJ3. That way you just plug in your watch and check for firmware updates on it.
